Update: The authenticity of this information has come under fire and new statements have been released by both Regain Records and God Seed. The new statements can be viewed here.

The official God Seed MySpace page has been updated with the following statement regarding former Gorgoroth members King and Gaahl's lawsuit against Regain Records:

"On December 17, 2009, authorities in Malmø, Sweden decided in favor of King and Gaahl in their case brought against Regain Records for the unauthorized release of Gorgoroth's 'Live in Grieghallen' album. Regain Records has been found to have broken their contract with King/Gaahl on numerous accounts, has been forbidden by the courts to sell this album in the future and has been ordered to pay all legal costs and compensation in the case.

"In anticipation of the verdict, Regain Records filed bankruptcy to Lund Tingsrett in Sweden and was declared bankrupt on December 8, 2009 (Regain Records and Entertainment AB corporate identity number 556689-1825). Peter Överman from Ackordcentralen, Sweden is named as liquidator and is now working on getting an overview of Regain's financial situation as well as handling the claims from Gaahl and King on unpaid royalties, among other claims."
