IMMORTAL frontman Abbath (real name: Olve Eikemo) has reportedly joined forces with original IMMORTAL drummer Armagedda, ENSLAVED guitarist Arve Isdal and GORGOROTH bassist King in a brand-new project dubbed simply I. The group have finished writing two-thirds of the material for their upcoming full-length debut, which will feature lyrics written primarily by former IMMORTAL guitarist Demonaz (real name: Harald Nævdal). The band, who expect to enter the studio before the end of 2005, are said to be contemplating making several festival appearances next year. More information will be made available soon.

is that a capitol i or a lower case L?

either way i agree with key to nothing, whos comment can be summed up in a well rounded "what the f***?"

this sounds like it'll be pretty good though.

I was wondering the same thing "marcus." Gotta be some kind of concept album. Ehh...I guess if I ever hear it I'll be able to form a better opinion....that is if I ever hear it.

This is just f***ing class, ive been waiting for this news for a while, i read about it in an Abbath interview, but didn't expect anything for a long time, but this has confirmed my suspicions, I can't f***ing wait, Immortal are my favourite band and have been since i first ever heard The Mighty Raven Dark...

HAHA Kmadd, i guess you completely missed the point of me bashing you before. Now you are at least on a forum that doesnt start with "K", supporting what you like. I am not gonna bash that, like you do to the weaker korn kids that cant even defend themselves... I told you before, Metal shouldnt be divided, we are small enough as it is, so go ahead and support your "I" or whatever the f*** they are naming themselves. (seriously, is that an i, and L, or a 1?) I may even give it a listen myself, as looking for something new... (oh, and nice use of "poser", it really show's your intellectual and figurative dominance...)

crenshaw punch,clearly you dont get it,the reason we have every right to bash those weaker kornkids is because this site happens to be called "metal underground",this thread right here happens to actually be underground metal,that is the reason why those inferior kornkids have no right to bash immortal or gorgoroth(highly doubt they know who either band is anyway),......get it now
