Infernus Disbands Gorgoroth

Just weeks after winning his court case against former band mates Gaahl and King Ov Hell over the rights to the name Gorgoroth, guitarist Infernus has announced that he will be retiring the band. "For me, it was never about making another Gorgoroth album or doing another Gorgoroth tour," he says "I just wanted something to do to be completely honest with you. I guess it was also to prove a point but really, I was just extremely bored and decided a court case would be a good idea because it would take up quite a bit of time. There's not going to be another Gorgoroth album. It's that simple."

Infernus continued to shock fans by adding, "I will be doing a new record under a new moniker and I'll explain that in a minute, but what I really want to do right now is follow my life long ambition of becoming a Home Economics teacher at my local high school. Kids need to learn how to feed themselves and repair their clothes and I want to make it the most metal class available to all students."

Regarding his new band and subsequent record, Infernus claims, "It will be with all the same people that I had previously announced as part of the Gorgoroth lineup, but as I said, we won't be called Gorgoroth. We won't strictly be a metal band. I'm pretty sick of black metal to be honest. We're going to create our own take on America's southern rap music and from now on we're called Souljaroth."

Souljaroth's debut album, "Drop It Like It's Hot Flesh" will be released in September of this year.

When asked about what he thought of Infernus's decision, Gaahl simply replied, "He did WHAT?!"

Oh yeah that makes sense I guess. I couldn't help but shout "DO SOMETHING!" after a while though.

I had written "Satan" at the end, but it didn't show for some reason.

I must admit when I first saw brief quotes of this on the Web news various 'sites: I almost thought it was true but INFERNUS looks like the type of person that will not let his treasure/GORGOROTH go so easily especially after filling out all that paper works...loads and loads of official paper works over the name of GORGOROTH. Then I saw the date it's April 1st, it's April's Fool day...'that's pretty wild & totally false news with that! peace.
