Gorgoroth, meaning "land of great despair", is a black metal band, named after the dark plains of Mordor in J.R.R.Tolkien's Lord of the Rings. Led by guitarist Infernus (a.k.a. Roger Tiegs), it emerged in 1992 as a trio including vocalist Hat (‘Hate’ in Norwegian) and drummer Goat Pervertor.

The band, based in Hyllestad, debuted on April 28th 1993 with a demo, entitled 'A Sorcery Written In Blood', featuring two tracks ‘Sexual Bloodgargling' and ‘(Under) The Pagan Megalith' preceded by the intro 'Gathered At Blåkulla', actually a minute plus of incoherent screaming. A further cassette, simply entitled 'Promo'94', captured two more songs 'Katharinas Bortgang' and 'Maaneskuggens Slave'. The opening 1994 'Pentagram' album, recorded at Grieghallen Studios with producer Pytten (a.k.a. Eirik Hundvin) for French label Embassy Productions, featured Emperor’s Samoth (a.k.a. Tomas Thormodsæter Haugen) on bass, due to the group's original bassist Kjetter being imprisoned for his involvement in the

GORGOROTH Antichrist

Album · 1996 · Black Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
siLLy puPPy
The cast of GORGOROTH has been ever changing with only founder and guitarist Infernus appearing on every album. On the second album ANTICHRIST (originally titled “Død” meaning dead) Infernus picks up the bass as well as Samoth departed to play with Satyricon amongst others. The mysterious Goat Pervertor was replaced by Frost on drums and Hat only appeared on three tracks for vocals whereas Pest appeared on “Possessed (By Satan).” The remaining three tracks were instrumentals including the opening intro “En Stram Lukt Av Kristent Blod” (A Rank Smell Of Christian Blood) which is nothing more than noises made by some beast and ambient sounds.

Just from that title alone you can tell that the subject matter is pretty much the same as “Pentagram” with Satanic symbolism and lyrics usurping the Christian landscape in order to unfurl the flag of Lucifer full staff. Musically however ANTICHRIST sounds a bit different. True all the second wave black metal hallmarks are on board with the cacophonous din of buzz saw guitars, tremolo picking and full fury bass and drum assaults however the songs aren’t as aggressive at every possible second with “Wind” having some secondary Scandinavian clean folk vocals over the black metal screams of anguish. Neither vocalist has the pissed-off cat sound on this one. Both Hat and Pest have the classic raspy Darkthrone style of semi-screamed / semi-growled vocal style. Also this album is even shorter than the first barely clocking in over the 25 minute mark.

ANTICHRIST once again proves that GORGOROTH were the real deal following in the footsteps of Mayhem and Darkthrone and were displaying their full allegiance to the dark and Satanic underground of the black metal movement in full force during the mid-90s. While not substantial different than their previous album or their influences, there are subtle differences that emerge from the din. The song structures are less straight forward and dynamic shifts occur more frequently on ANTICHRIST but all in all a standard orthodox example of second wave black metal that is utterly uncompromising in any possible way.

The one exception would be the closing “Sorg” which demonstrates a completely new side to GORGOROTH’s sound. It begins with a rain storm and the tintinnabulation of church bells and slows down the tempo to doom metal turf only it still sounds evil as fuck with the black metal guitar tones and raspy shouted vocals. It also has the clean folk Gregorian chant type vocals to back it up. Just enough to add to the GORGOROTH resume on ANTICHRIST to separate them even further from the pack.

GORGOROTH Pentagram

siLLy puPPy
Bursting out like a volcanic eruption in the early era of Norwegian second wave black metal, GORGOROTH, named after the dead plateau of darkness in the land of Mordor in The Lord Of The Rings, dropped their first full length bomb on an unsuspecting world after two blasphemous demos. The band was founded by guitarist Infernus who has been the only constant member in the band’s career as band members came and went. The debut release PENTAGRAM is the only album to feature Samoth on bass and that ghoulish underlord Goat Pervertor on drums, however vocalist Hat would stick around for one more album.

GORGOROTH takes the approach of Darkthrone’s lead and deliver a caustic assault of the senses with the classic black metal wall of sound complete with the cacophony of buzz saw guitar riffs, aggressive song structures and Hat’s classic pissed-off cat vocal style reminiscent of early Moonsorrow in their black metal years. Although he’s screaming his lungs out, the vocals are actually quite subdued in the mix as he angrily tries to out perform the metal raucous but only barely manages to pierce through. The album is actually quite short clocking in at under thirty minutes but more than makes up for it in intensity as it doesn’t let up for a second.

PENTRAGRAM will never be remembered as being the most original black metal album to come out in the second wave era but it certainly has enough punk infused attitude and addictive tracks to claw it’s way up towards the top of the attention getting pile of the era for not only do they capture the “purist’s” style of second wave black metal but were famous for following in the footsteps of fellow Norwegians Mayhem with their hatred for Christianity and their Satanic symbolism and onstage performances. While Infernus would add more experimental elements on future albums, on this one they perform a type of black metal that is about as kvlt and orthodox as you can get. Despite it though, i actually prefer hearing their version of Darkthrone to Darkthrone themselves!

Pest returns to the vocal spot and Infernus once again becomes the band's primary composer as Gorgoroth emerges from the devastating feud between Infernus on the one hand and King ov Hell and Gaahl on the other. It's not an earthshakingly original album or a major departure from Gorgorth's usual style, but then again it didn't have to be; what was called for at the time was simply an album which proved that Gorgoroth could still raise a black metal cacophony and spit evil lyrics at the listener. This it does; as usual, the lyrics are extremely difficult and sometimes impossible to decipher, but the song titles at least seem to suggest a response to the Gaahl/King ov Hell-led era of Gorgoroth ("Building a Man" has to be some kind of take on "Carving a Giant", right?"); either way, all that really matters with Gorgoroth is that they sound furious and they certainly are that here.

The followup to Twilight of the Idols finds the dominance of Gaahl and King ov Hell over the band almost complete, with the duo writing all of the music and lyrics. And since on Twilight the only music written by Infernus was the 50 second outro track, this is pretty much the second Gorgoroth album in a row where Gaahl and King have been the primary creative forces in the band, in stark contrast to the band's career from their debut to Incipit Satan. Scholars of black metal history may be interested in it because it's the best indication we have of what the short-lived God Seed project might have sounded like - or, indeed, what Gorgoroth itself might have continued to sound like had Gaahl and King ov Hell succeeded in stealing the band from Infernus. Those who simply like primitive, angry black metal will find it an entertaining listen up to Gorgoroth's usual standards.

Somehow, I get the impression that Gorgoroth were profoundly disappointed that the burning church depicted on the cover of Twilight of the Idols didn't inspire a new wave of church burnings - I guess the Norwegian scene by and large had learned better than that after the Varg Vikernes debacle. (Plus, the original wave of church burnings tended to involve musicians actually getting off their asses and taking part in them, rather than just making provocative press interviews and hoping their nuttier fans would get the hint.)

I say this because in its music and in its presentation, Twilight of the Idols is absolutely obsessed with keeping alive the memory and aesthetic of the black metal scene as it was in 1993, just as the band seemed intent on doing so in their interactions with the media. Look at their outrageous gig in Krakow where they managed to get in trouble with the authorities, and you'll note that they were essentially borrowing Mayhem's stage getup; look at more or less any black metal documentary from this sort of period which features input from Gaahl, and more or less all of them create the impression that there have been no significant developments or evolution in black metal since the murder of Euronymous.

Those who have listened to more experimental black metal bands know that this is not true of course... but you don't come to Gorgoroth because you want a departure from the norm, you listen to them because they're an act based on keeping the old school flame alive. In retrospect, this is probably why Incipit Satan failed - Infernus was trying to get the band to be experimental but temperamentally the lineup just weren't suited to it.

On Twilight of the Idols they do a more than reasonable job. The lyrical and compositional contributions of Infernus, which had dominated pretty much every Gorgoroth release to date, are radically trimmed back, with Infernus only contributing lyrics to Forces of Satan Storms and only composing the music to the extremely short album coda. Aside from a couple of musical contributions from drummer of the day Kvitrafn, the album is dominated by the creative team of Gaahl and King ov Hell.

Although this duo would eventually spell trouble for the Gorgoroth brand with their shameful attempt to kick Infernus out of his own band some years later, here the teamup proves to be precisely what the band needed. With Infernus evidently suffering from writer's block, and the compositional approach which had sustained the band from the debut through to Destroyer apparently running out of steam, the time was right for the band's sound to be refreshed. Gaahl and King ov Hell succeed in doing precisely that whilst still remaining rooted in the early Norwegian black metal aesthetic.

If anything, their musical vision seems a bit more muscular and purist than that of Infernus, who would often incorporate a few rockier or punkier touches into the early Gorgoroth albums, and whilst this makes the band's sound a little bit less original and individual (aside from some interesting vocal touches here and there by Gaahl), on the whole it's a very capably performed piece of "True Norwegian black metal" which might not break much new ground, but stomps around the old ground very satisfyingly.
