When Abbath announced that he had left IMMORTAL, it sent massive shockwaves through the metal scene. The iconic frontman had long become the “face” of the Norwegian black scene, his image synonymous with this style. Now the Norwegian giant has returned with his new band ABBATH and a crushing debut album of the same name. The opening triplet “To War”, “Winter Bane”, and “Ashes of the Damned” unleashes all the fury of a Nordic blizzard at full force. Yet the following “Ocean of Wounds” proves that his new band is equally at home in writing anthemic mid-tempo hymns. Abbath’s characteristic riffing shines clearly through it all: heavy, harsh, and yet catchy and melodic with a touch of epic BATHORY, MOTÖRHEAD, and even KISS.

‘Abbath’ impresses from start to finish. This is exactly the album that all fans of this particular Bergen brand of black metal have been hoping for. Hold on tight or get blown away. ABBATH are here now and ready to conquer the world!
