Gaahl, former vocalist with Gorgoroth and most recently with God Seed, has decided to retire from the music scene. God Seed bass player King Ov Hell has stated that he is "freezing" the band at the moment as a result of Gaahl's decision. The future of the bands debut album remains uncertain at this point. Stay tuned for more information as it becomes available.
More comments have been made on both sides of the camp regarding God Seed's recent signing to Indie Recordings. The label commented:
"Through the last years we've worked with King & Gaahl in many different bands and projects such as. Gorgoroth, Trelldom, Sahg, Audrey Horne and Wardruna. The quality of their work has always been outstanding, and we welcome this opportunity to once again work with them – this time building something new together. The as-yet-untitled God Seed album will be released late 2009. The album has been in the making for some time already, and continues the already established path of King and Gaahl in a natural, yet progressive way.
"The new material sounds great and we are truly looking forward to be a part of their new musical carrier through God Seed."
In a press statement King comments the signing and the upcoming album:
"I have high hopes for the future signing to Indie Recordings. Gaahl and I have had various negative experiences with labels in the past, but feel confident that we have made the right choice this time. Indie Recordings consists of people we have worked with in the past and they have shown 100% professionalism. They have proven to take care and bring the best out of the bands on their roster. The fact that they are a Norwegian label and not a Swedish label makes me even more optimistic for the future!!"

Therefore I’m very excited about God Seed - even on a personal level. Hopefully this will lead to growth to me personally and for the band as a whole. It’s time to use my energy on something that wants to live, rather than to use my energy on something that wants to die and be part of my past!!!"
