Ex-Immortal front-man Abbath (Olve Eikemo) will release Count The Dead on 7″ vinyl with a cover of Judas Priest song Riding The Wind. The single can be pre-ordered now via the Season of Mist webstore or the Season of Mist European store.
The release comes ahead of the expected new album by Abbath, which will be released sometime in January 2016. Says Abbath about the new LP – “Abbath is continuing to move from strength to strength and has finished the writing process for the band’s debut album. Having signed to Season of Mist earlier this year, we can now announce that we will unleash the record in January 2016.”
In celebration of the release Abbath will be playing an album launch show in London on January 23rd 2016. Abbath stated about this – “With every great release, there is a party to go with it – and this album is no exception. As such, the London show that was scheduled for September is now moving to Saturday 23rd of January 2016. All tickets remain valid. Primordial and Conan will still be coming along for the ride, alongside Metal Hammer UK DJ’s, and more.”
