Abbath Excited About New Drummer

(TeamRock Radio) Abbath says his band's new drummer Gabe Seeber is among the best two sticksmen on the planet - alongside the man he replaced. Former Immortal man Olve 'Abbath' Eikemo's self-titled group sees him backed by a drummer taking the name Creature. The original Creature was Kevin Foley, who was later replaced by Seeber.

And Abbath couldn't be happier with how things worked out. He tells Metal Wani: "From Creature Kevin to Creature Gabe, they are pretty much the same drummers. It's like changing lane, but the speed and determination is still there. I would say they are the best drummers in the world."

Abbath's debut, self-titled, album was released last month and the mainman says the songs were written for what would have been Immortal's ninth album. Instead, they ended up on his new project's debut, although he admits he couldn't have done it without Creature and bass player King ov Hell.

Abbath adds: "It didn't become an Immortal album, which it was supposed to be, It became an Abbath album and I could never have done it without King and Creature." Read more and watch the full interview here.
