Abbath Debut Album Announced for January 2016

Ex-Immortal front-man Abbath (Olve Eikemo) has completed writing his new debut album, which will be released sometime in January 2016.  Says Abbath – “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.”

Abbath tried to secure the exclusive rights to the Immortal name when he split from the band, but ultimately went solo; he went on to tell Metal Hammer – “I didn’t want to go solo in the first place. I wanted the best for Immortal. I didn’t want it to end this way. First of all, I just wanted my music out. I wanted to record the album, it’s been so many years since All Shall Fall. And both Demonaz and Horgh, they have kids and families now, and it just hit that point where I couldn’t work the way they wanted to work any more. I wanted things on my terms and they wanted things on their terms, and it was very difficult.   I wanted to rehearse at least three times a week, but often it was only once a week and things went so slow. I sat there with all this material, I kept the rehearsal space and recorded the stuff on click track, but it was a very strained atmosphere and the Last time we worked together was in early June last year.”
