Immortal Accuse Former Frontman Abbath Of Song Theft


(TeamRock Radio) Immortal say that former frontman Abbath took some of their tracks and used them on his solo album. Abbath, aka Olve Eikemo, released his self-titled solo album earlier this year after he was sacked by guitarist Harald 'Demonaz' Navdal and drummer Reidar 'Horgh' Horghagen in 2014.

The acrimonious split seemed to come to a head when the singer saw his legal bid to secure rights to the Immortal name fail. But Abbath's former bandmates now point to some of the tracks on his album and claim foul play was involved.

Immortal say in a statement: "From 2010 until 2014, Immortal wrote all the songs for the successor to All Shall Fall but when ex-member Abbath left the band, he changed the lyrics, song titles and recorded these songs for his so called 'solo album.'

"We had to focus on making a new album nearly from scratch, which is the main reason why things have taken this much time." Read more here.
