Gorgoroth are black metal veterans from the early Norwegian scene. Infernus, the founder and driving force behind the band,remained the only permanent member since the band was formed. In 2007, band mates Gaahl (Vocalist) and King Ov Hell (Bass) attempted to copyright and trademark Gorgoroth's name, logo, and entity while Infernus was serving time in prison. Infernus was eventually deemed to be "Gorgoroth" for all intesive purposes by the Swedish courts, and thereby could not be removed from the band. Gaahl and King ov Hell were legally removed from the band, and have since been replaced. They are well known for their unsettling stage shows, one of which included threemock crucifixions of naked women, bags over their heads, with severed animal heads lining the stage on stakes... in the Pope'shometown of Krakow, Poland. Most of the members, past and present, have also been in and out of jail over the course of theircareers, mostly for assault charges. Their early work is raw, definitive black metal, whereas the more recent albums have acleaner production and more death metal influence. « hide
