Gorgoroth Trademark Verdict Issued

Oslo City District Court has delivered a verdict on the main question in the GORGOROTH trademark case, which took place at the end of January 2009. The court has decided that King Ov Hell‘s trademark registration #243365 of the band name Gorgoroth is NOT valid and shall therefore be deleted. The court states that King ov Hell and Gaahl excluded themselves from the band Gorgoroth when they tried to fire Infernus in October 2007. The court further states that Infernus cannot be excluded from Gorgoroth, unless he himself decides to quit. Infernus is very pleased, but not surprised, by this verdict. The remaining issues concerning financial matters and such are yet to be decided upon.

Blabbermouth.net has received the following statement from bassist Tom Cato Visnes and vocalist Kristian Espedal regarding the latest developments in their legal dispute with guitarist Infernus over the rights to the Gorgoroth band name: “Regarding the recent court case over the use of the name Gorgoroth, Kristian Espedal and Tom Cato Visnes confirm that parts of the verdict have been decided and went in favour of Infernus. This is only a partial verdict on the case. Because of the complexity of this case, there will be further court hearings and the final verdict will be announced within a few weeks.”

    this is bullshit. Gaahl was always the heart and soul of Gorgoroth. There is no Gorgoroth without Gaahl.

    Always! ALWAYS??? Gaahl didn’t even join until 1998. At least 5 years after Gorgoroth was already formed and recorded albums. Why should he get credited for a band he joined? In all fairness it DOES belong to Infernus. I’m sick of people arguing against that fact. If everyone wants to suck off Gaahl then follow his next project but Gorgoroth was never more his band than Infernus.

    @Rottendan: Gorgoroth didn’t make jackshit worth listening to until Gaahl joined up. Gaah IS Gorgoroth.

    You’re a fucking moron. The first three albums are the best: Pentagram, Antichrist, Under The Sign Of Hell

    Now go and wank it to Winds Of Plague, fruit: http://www.metalsucks.net/wp-content/uploads/2008/09/a6pue.jpg

    Wtf? Why am i listening to Winds of Plague just because I think Gorgoroth’s first albums were shit?

    Their later stuff is WAY fucking better you deaf moron. Stop trying be all “kvlt.” Incipit Satan was easily the best album they ever made.

    They used have a vocalist named “Hat.” It doesn’t get any gayer than that. Thank God they ditched him and that faggot Pest and got someone with real talent to totally reshape them as a band.

    That`s totally bullshit, it seems that you`re infatuated with Gaalh and want to blow him.
    As a matter of fact, first three Gorgoroth albums are the best, incipit satan is quite good but Twilight of the idols is boring crap and Ad majorem did a little better but not to the level of Infernus composed records.
    Have you listened to King ov Gays` project bands (Sahg/Audrey Horne/I) they all sound the same retro-rock bullshit. I was afraid of this couple of faggots turning Gorgoroth into a happy silly rock pop bullshit band, luckily Infernus won the trial.

    I find it terribly ironic that you are so uninformed that Gaahl came out. Not that I have anything against it but that you argue ‘They used have a vocalist named “Hat.” It doesn’t get any gayer than that. Thank God they ditched him and that faggot Pest…’
    I have honestly tried listening to Gaahls’ albums (even Trelldom and Gaahlskagg) but overall I find them to be boring after a couple listens and keep on listening to the old 3 albums. Ad Majorem Sathanas Gloriam I enjoy but the others are forgettable save a song here or there. If ‘Gaahl IS Gorgoroth’ then I got bored of that years ago. Onto new and better music then!

  10. Gallo says:

    Yeah, that`s right Trelldom and Gaahlskagg are pure shit!!!
    Not to mention the fact that the reason why incipit satan is still an interesting album is because Infernus WROTE it and not that King Ov Primary School Teachers faggot.
    How loser would you end looking up if you try to steal other man`s long time creation and then state to the rest of the world: “Hey, Now it`s my band, because I pay it more attention that its founder!!! 100% crap!”.
    Fuck Gaahl and King ov Weenies and all their followers!!!!
