Regain Records And God Seed Comment On Lawsuit

The God Seed MySpace page was recently updated with a statement that a verdict had been reached in a court case regarding the release of Gorogoroth's "Live in Grieghallen" album. The statement indicated that the favorable verdict for former Gorgoroth members Gaahl and King caused Regain Records to go bankrupt. Regain Records has now issued the following statement regarding the comments:

"Due to misleading rumours being spread through God Seed’s MySpace page regarding the bankruptcy of Regain Records, we would like to clarify to all people who have contacted us recently that Regain Records is not in bankruptcy. We would also like to make clear that the dispute that concerns 'Live in Grieghallen' only involves Tom Cato Visnes (aka King), Regain Records and Entertainment AB, since a settlement with Kristian Espedal (aka Gaahl) was already reached in 2009. The legal outcome of this trial has no bearing on Regain Records nor does it influence our future in any way. It is also incorrect that Regain Records owes any unpaid royalties towards Tom Cato Visnes or Kristian Espedal.

"Furthermore Regain Records is very content with the fact that we are still working with the band Gorgoroth and the fact that we choose to support the rightful owner of the trademark, namely Roger Tiegs (aka Infernus). This has always been our main priority during the various legal proceedings which have involved Gorgoroth in one way or another."

The God Seed MySpace page was also updated with the following statement in regards to the situation: More...

Verdict Reached In Regain Records Lawsuit

Update: The authenticity of this information has come under fire and new statements have been released by both Regain Records and God Seed. The new statements can be viewed here.

The official God Seed MySpace page has been updated with the following statement regarding former Gorgoroth members King and Gaahl's lawsuit against Regain Records:

"On December 17, 2009, authorities in Malmø, Sweden decided in favor of King and Gaahl in their case brought against Regain Records for the unauthorized release of Gorgoroth's 'Live in Grieghallen' album. Regain Records has been found to have broken their contract with King/Gaahl on numerous accounts, has been forbidden by the courts to sell this album in the future and has been ordered to pay all legal costs and compensation in the case.

"In anticipation of the verdict, Regain Records filed bankruptcy to Lund Tingsrett in Sweden and was declared bankrupt on December 8, 2009 (Regain Records and Entertainment AB corporate identity number 556689-1825). Peter Överman from Ackordcentralen, Sweden is named as liquidator and is now working on getting an overview of Regain's financial situation as well as handling the claims from Gaahl and King on unpaid royalties, among other claims."

Gorgoroth Attempts To Stop Bootleg Album

In a recent message from Gorgoroth guitarist Infernus, a warning was issued to the band's fans that a bootleg album entitled, "Forces Of Satan Storms" could be released. The post reads as follows:

"According to several major online retailers, a new Gorgoroth CD called Forces Of Satan Storms is supposed to be released on January 26th, 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."
