Bassist King Ov Hell Exits Abbath Over Religious Lyrical Content Concerns

Bassist King Ov Hell (ex-Gorogorth/God Seed, etc.) has announced his exit from Abbath, who have been working on a new full-length. King (aka Tom Cato Visnes) explained via Facebook that a difference of opinion of the group’s upcoming lyrical matter led to his departure.

“King will no longer be part of Abbath due to conflicting views on lyrical concepts of the upcoming album. The lyrics are inspired by Swiss psychiatrist, Carl Gustav Jung. King finds that Jung’s connection to Christian mysticism is incompatible with the image of the band.

“I wish members of the actual band, label, and crew all the best for the upcoming shows and album. The music itself is nothing short of brilliant. However, I must maintain artistic integrity and respectfully step aside.” –King“
