This 8 concert tour, which would have had support by Belphegor and NervoChaos, will unfortunately not take place after all. We will not, under any circumstances, work with the promoter Shah Rizal (Vokill Records, Malaysia). We are on the lookout for new cooperation partners in Asia and also Oceania.

Infernus Fires Pest

Out of respect for and loyalty to Gorgoroth's audience and collaborators, Infernus has kicked Pest out of the band, effective immediately. This after Pest informed the band that he would not be prioritizing doing the upcoming Latin American tour after all, just two weeks before the band was set to depart for Brazil. Infernus has decided that the tour will go on as planned, though, and Hoest of Taake will replace Pest as vocalist on the tour starting on September 7, 2012. As for the next Gorgoroth studio album "Instinctus Bestialis", vocal duties will be handled by a Serbian Satanist known as Atterigner, of the band Triumfall (Forces of Satan Records).

No Gorgoroth European Tour in May 2012

As many of you may have noticed, there has been no official statement from Gorgoroth confirming a European tour in May 2012, despite the fact that there have been several listings for such a tour on various non-band related websites, and there have even been tickets available for some of the supposed shows.

Since January 2012 we have intended to go on a 21-24 concert May tour of the UK, Germany, Slovenia, Poland, Hungary, Austria, etc. And we have gone through a long process where ASP Concerts & Tourbooking (represented by Marcus Schreiber) were supposed to book this tour. It has been a nightmare process from day one, as Marcus Schreiber has shown a massive amount of both ill will and lack of ability in regards to arranging this in a professional and believable fashion.

I have waited as long as I possibly could in the hopes that this project would be possible to go through with after all, but after today it was clear to me that we have no other choice but to make a statement where we confirm that there will be no European tour in May 2012. This is of course very regrettable for the band, for the local promoters who have got involved in this mess, and for all those who wanted to see us perform in May. For this I am sorry. It was a mistake ignoring other people's warnings about working with ASP and Marcus Schreiber. Both booking companies and other bands have warned us against this. We will never again work with him, and would not recommend anyone else to do so either.

To our audience: Do NOT buy tickets for any Gorgoroth concert in May 2012. These concerts will not take place. If you have already done so, you should check with the local promoter or ticket vendor for a refund.

Infernus, 30.04.2012

Tour Recap and News

Gorgoroth's 38 show European tour of November and December 2011 was a great success for the band, and we wish to thank the audience and also the local promoters for the warm welcome we received. Check out the tour report from Sheol Magazine here. A 6-page tour report can also be found in the February 2012 issue of the Norwegian magazine Alfa. We are currently looking into the possibility of doing another European tour as early as May 2012. More information on this when things are confirmed. Gorgoroth will also be featured in Norwegian metal magazine Helvete Magazine's January-March 2012 issue.

After a press conference in São Paulo last week, we are now pleased to announce that Gorgoroth will also return to Brazil in September 2012. A total of five concerts are planned:

06.09.12 - TBA
07.09.12 - Belo Horizonte
08.09.12 - São Paulo
09.09.12 - TBA

Porto Concert 13.12.11 Cancelled

We are sorry to inform you that on the request of the local promoter we have to cancel the show in Porto on 13 December. That said, we would like to thank our audience for turning up in great numbers and giving us such a good reception at the concerts we have done so far on the tour, especially in Rome, Skopje, Ljubljana and Novi Sad!

Concert in Sofia Tonight - Cancelled

Massive Music has been forced to cancel the scheduled Gorgoroth concert with Vader and Valkyrja tonight in Sofia, after the bands had arrived at the venue. This due to fundamental mistakes made by the local promoter. We are therefore now leaving, despite there being a big crowd outside the venue. We are very sorry about this extremely unfortunate situation, and hope we get the chance to return to Sofia before too long to work with a more serious promoter.

Short Tour Report

The first few shows on "The Sign of Hell Tour 2011" have now taken place, and everything is going well, despite the actions of certain ill-informed people in Berlin. Luckily, sanity prevailed, as evidenced by the reactions of the venue as well as Metal Hammer editor Jacob Kranz and others. The concert audience has been great so far, and it was also great being back in Copenhagen last night for the band's first show in Denmark since 2005.

Under the Sign of Hell 2011 - New Delay

Infernus and Gorgoroth were informed this weekend by Regain Records that because of Regain's current financial situation, it will once again be necessary for the label to postpone the release of Gorgoroth's upcoming album "Under the Sign of Hell 2011", which was scheduled for release on 29. August 2011. The master tapes were handed over to Regain by the band in April this year, and so it is of course very disappointing for the band that the label for the second time is not able to meet the set release date. Therefore, to avoid this happening again, no new release date will be given by the band until Regain can sort out their problems and provide a new date with 100% certainty.

Studio News + Final November Tour Date Confirmed

Gorgoroth will spend the following week in Tomas Asklund's Monolith Studio to put the finishing touches on a project which has been kept secret until now: a complete re-recording of the band's third album "Under the Sign of Hell". It has long been Infernus' wish to do such a re-recording, and now the work is close to an end. No release date has been set yet, but an early to mid 2011 release is likely. In addition, the time in the studio will be spent working on the still untitled next Gorgoroth full-length album, tentatively scheduled for a late 2011 release. Both albums will be released by Regain Records.

New Gorgoroth European Tour in November 2010

In November 2010, Gorgoroth will embark on what will be the 2nd leg of the "Quantos Possunt ad Satanitatem Trahunt" tour in Europe, following the nine dates of the tour which took place in April this year.

Comments Infernus, "We're totally excited about this! To get the opportunity to extend the Quantos Possunt-tour into other European territories which we did not have time for in April. As of now, we aim at doing this as the 2nd out of three in total. This also coincides with the beginning of a new chapter for us in terms of booking-agency, as I last week made up my mind and decided to switch to Massive Music for the continental parts of Europe. Fear the return!"

The first confirmed concert which will be part of this tour is in Caen, France, at Le Cargö, on 25 November. Further details on the remaining dates will be posted when they are confirmed.

Before that, Gorgoroth will be playing three concerts in Brazil on 4-6 September, as well as at The Heavy Metal Circus expo in Mexico City on 11 September. More info on this can be found in the Live section.

Infernus is also a featured artist at EVH's official website: www.evhgear.com/artists

Bootleg Warning - Forces of Satan Storms

According to several major online retailers, a new Gorgoroth CD called "Forces of Satan Storms" is supposed to be released on January 26, 2010, by a company called IMV Blueline. This has understandably led to some confusion, as no such release has been announced on the official Gorgoroth website. I would therefore like to make it clear to all that this CD is to be considered a bootleg, as it has not been sanctioned by the band. Also, to the best of my knowledge, this CD has been successfully stopped and will not be released at all.
