The God Seed MySpace page was recently updated with a statement that a verdict had been reached in a court case regarding the release of Gorogoroth's "Live in Grieghallen" album. The statement indicated that the favorable verdict for former Gorgoroth members Gaahl and King caused Regain Records to go bankrupt. Regain Records has now issued the following statement regarding the comments:

"Due to misleading rumours being spread through God Seed’s MySpace page regarding the bankruptcy of Regain Records, we would like to clarify to all people who have contacted us recently that Regain Records is not in bankruptcy. We would also like to make clear that the dispute that concerns 'Live in Grieghallen' only involves Tom Cato Visnes (aka King), Regain Records and Entertainment AB, since a settlement with Kristian Espedal (aka Gaahl) was already reached in 2009. The legal outcome of this trial has no bearing on Regain Records nor does it influence our future in any way. It is also incorrect that Regain Records owes any unpaid royalties towards Tom Cato Visnes or Kristian Espedal.

"Furthermore Regain Records is very content with the fact that we are still working with the band Gorgoroth and the fact that we choose to support the rightful owner of the trademark, namely Roger Tiegs (aka Infernus). This has always been our main priority during the various legal proceedings which have involved Gorgoroth in one way or another."

The God Seed MySpace page was also updated with the following statement in regards to the situation:

"Concerning Regain Records and their statement about the 'Live in Grieghallen' court decision: The statement made regarding the court decision over 'Live in Grieghallen' can be verified as a matter of record. God Seed stands behind the statement made by MySpace blog on February 9, 2010 as true and correct. Facts regarding Regain Records bankruptcy filing can be verified on public records at this web address. Regain's bankruptcy filing occurred prior to the court decision and their reasons for filing are strictly their own."
