Band Photo: Gorgoroth (?)

Former Gorgoroth members Gaahl and King Ov Hell has announced that they will now be using the moniker of God Seed. The band has also signed to Indie Recordings and will be releasing their debut album in the later part of this year. King Ov Hell states: "The past 18 months has been a struggle on many levels. 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!!!"

Nah, he's just taking pot shots at Branded. 420 is in his forum name. Same thing that happens everytime someone who likes Metallica realizes Branded doesn't and takes it personally.

No offense, it just happens on a weekly basis. Bash away, he can take it.

For someone who's "bringing the site down" I'm not bothered by him. He b****es about Metallica, other than that he's a pretty nice guy. If you have a problem with him, that's between you and him. The site seems fine to me.

Gotcha Netro...this isn't even a Metallica thread, so it still makes little to no sense...Whatever, I guess. Branded's a nice guy, agreed. He just has fun provoking the sheep, and he's unusually good at it, apparently.

^actually, there a re couple members on here that regularly get hassled. Korndog and TimW get it a lot, for different reasons.

cynic and Branded used to be nearly cutthroat at times, but you saw in the other thread how they instanly translated form open insult to conversing about their lives right?

"Wiggles" and "Blackmetalgodess" are always disagreeing or insulting each other's favorite music genres(hardcore and well, duh, respectively), whnever they end up on the same board, no matter how much I try and rationalize between them.

Being a member doesnt mean everybody is everybody's buddy, but often times, it means you've realized that some people you can choose to tolerate, while others are impassable to each other, and those that hate each other, have learned to generally avoid conversation.

If anything, Branded is what I would consider the mascot of this site. He hates the most popular metal band on the planet, because they have done everything in their powerr to become the most popular metal band on the planet. the perfect epitome of the underground's hatred for mass media acceptance. Branded is here to stay, and trust me, he's really not that bad of a guy, he just REEEALLLY hates Metallica.

If I was a$$ kissing, I would say he's the f***in sh**, not "he's not that bad of a guy"

Please dont throw baseless unfounded accusations my way. I have no patience for them.

Not to mention the fact that; how is he the cancer?

Are people leaving the site because of him? even the people who completely disagree with him in every way are still regulars on this site, both people who were here before him, and newcomers alike. the only people who seem to have a real vendetta against him are you and 420 hater.

SO how does he represent a cancer? Keep in mind, I outlined in detail my reasoning for labeling him the mascot. What are the specific reasons that you consider him a cancer? I just dont understand how one person's rants about metallica can bring down a website thats been running for 7 years regardless of his existence?

I've been goin on this site for a couple of years now and I've also read alot of braned's comments and I used to like metallica and i did not care what he said. he doesnt seem to be a bad person at all he just has a strong apinion about music he likes and dislikes. I sugest dont get your panties in a bunch because someone bad mouths a band u like if u do ur a fag. Bottom line shut the f*** up and live with what people think of the bands u like because no one has the same opinion as u on every god damn f***ing thing.

I laughed, hard!

Something else making me laugh is that Branded hasn't even posted in this thread! I've been a user of this site since 2005 and worked here since 2007 and if you think Branded is the worst guy we've ever had you don't know the site well at all. Anyone remember the likes of Coco? I personally found Red Devil hilarious but evidently not alot of other people did lol. I'm a huge fan of Metallica and Branded doesn't bother me at all, anymore at least. You get used to him after awhile and he's a part of this site and it's character, as much as any of the long time users here are.

More than likely a cease and desist order denying them the rights to use the name as of the judges' ruling. Which means the prior releases probably won't change. That would be rough to enforce anyway seeing how long they've been around.

Although, retro-active royalties for the use of the name might be in order if the old albums under that name are still being produced. All depends on if the albums are still in distribution, I suppose. If they are out of print, then it should no longer be an issue unless Infernus wants to sue for back payment regarding their past use of what is legally his band name.

Whee! Red tape and litigation!

May the former members of GORGOROTH Gaahl & King move forward on with their new name of GOD SEED (sounds oddly ironic but yet still quite a powerful name, too...'solid root grounded with foundation) & their music works will thrive continue on with their new name. And to the founding GORGOROTH member Infernus may he thrive & move forward with his new bandmates in Gorgoroth. "It has certainly been a weary/tiresome battle of wills over the Trademark name of GORGOROTH which "all" of them Gaahl, King & Infernus hold quite dear to their Hearts & it finally came down to the wire that the founding member guitarist/musician Infernus has total rights & ownership of that haunting Trademark name of Gorgoroth which he'd named from the start. The very best to "all" three very heavy extreme fame musicians: Infernus/Gorgoroth and King ov Hell & Gaahl/formerly of Gorgoroth & now new name God Seed the ultmost best in their music quest endeavors. Peace and much respects!"

I don't know about you guys, but the little skirmish between Branded and Rick is way more entertaining than the actual story line.

"vagina in a uproar"? That sh** is just classic.

"Miopic"? Is that the best you can do? You've been holding on to that one for awhile haven't you?

I think we need a thread that is called the "Fight Thread". It's simple, speaks for itself, and let's everyone with a beef with someone else to let it all out so everyone can watch and laugh and point at the loser, whoever that might be.

I'm glad that King and Gaahl are still going to be around in the music business, because even though Infernus rightfully deserves the Gorgoroth name, it'd be a shame to lose a couple of talented guys like them.

Both men and women were up there onstage naked and on crosses so it makes no sense what some jackass said about how Gaahl would want guys up there on crosses. It is a detail you don't know about because you don't know sh** about Gorgoroth in the first place. The new name, well I'll have to get used to it I guess.
