    Black Mass Krakow 2004

    Black Mass Krakow 2004 is a live concert DVD by Norwegian black metal band, Gorgoroth. It was released on June 9 in Europe and on July 8 in the US. The DVD features the band's controversial 2004 concert that was filmed in a TV studio in Kraków, Poland. The DVD also features live footage from the Full Force Festival Leipzig 2000, a band biography, discography and photo gallery, desktop images, and web links, and is also compatible with Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound. The concert featured sheep heads on stakes, "crucified" nude models, Satanic symbols, and eighty litres of sheep blood. The band came under fire for violating Polish anti-blasphemy laws as well as Polish animal rights laws. A police investigation took place with allegations of religious offence (which is prosecutable under Polish law) and cruelty to animals. Though these charges were considered, the band was not charged as it was ruled that they were unaware of the fact that what they were doing was illegal, although the concert organiser was eventually fined 10000zł in 2007 as he knew about it and neither informed the band that it was against the law nor intervened. The whole controversy led to the band being dropped

    A Sorcery Written in Blood

    • Year Released: 1993
    A Sorcery Written in Blood was the first demo released by the Norwegian black metal band Gorgoroth. The title of the demo was taken from the lyrics of the song "The Return of Darkness and Evil" by the band Bathory. The demo was released in 1993 as a limited edition hand-numbered cassette. A 7" vinyl bootleg also exists; however, there are no official re-issues. Due to the Satanic imagery used on the demo cover, the newspaper Firda in Førde in Sogn og Fjordane, Norway, ran a front-page story on the demo and Gorgoroth on 7 January 1994. The demo led to the band landing a record deal with French record label Embassy Productions. The track "Sexual Bloodgargling" is an early version of the song "Ritual", present on Gorgoroth's first album Pentagram.

    Ad Majorem Sathanas Gloriam

    Ad Majorem Sathanas Gloriam

    • Year Released: 2006
    Ad Majorem Sathanas Gloriam is the seventh studio album by Norwegian black metal band Gorgoroth. It was released in June 2006 through Regain Records, and was nominated for Norway's 2006 Spellemann award in the 'Metal' category. This was the only Gorgoroth album where all of the lyrics and music were written by Gaahl and King ov Hell, and was the last to feature both members. In November 2007, the album was reissued with a slightly different cover and a DVD containing the "Carving a Giant" music video and another video documenting how it was recorded. It is also the first album not to feature songs and lyrics in Norwegian. The title is a Latin term meaning for the greater glory of Satan. It is a mutation of the Society of Jesus motto Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam meaning for the greater glory of God. It contains a grammatical error, however, as Sathanas is typically declined as a first declension masculine noun, where its genitive (possessive) form would correctly be 'Sathanae'. It was conceived by Infernus after having read an article about the organisation. The cover artwork is taken from the painting Dante and Virgil in Hell by William-Adolphe Bouguereau.

    Incipit Satan

    Incipit Satan

    • Year Released: 2000
    Incipit Satan is the fifth full-length album by Norwegian black metal band Gorgoroth. It was released in February 2000 through Nuclear Blast and reissued in 2006 by Back on Black Records.

Incipit Satan was also the first album to mark Gaahl as full-time vocalist and King ov Hell as bassist. The band members dedicated the album to their deceased friend and former bandmate Erik Brødreskift (a.k.a. "Grim").

    Quantos Possunt ad Satanitatem Trahunt

    • Year Released: 2009
    Quantos Possunt ad Satanitatem Trahunt (loosly translated from Latin as "They can draw to Satanism")is the eighth studio album by Norwegian black metal band Gorgoroth. It was released in October 2009 through Regain Records. Infernus – founding member and guitarist of Gorgoroth – began work on this album in October 2006 and was first reported writing it when he was released on parole from prison in March 2007. However, the latter stages of the songwriting and much of the recording process would be overshadowed – at least as far as public attention was concerned – by the Gorgoroth name dispute which began in October 2007. Within two weeks of the ignition of the dispute, the album title was revealed to the public. This album marks the return of Pest on vocals, as well as the debut of Tomas Asklund (ex-Infernal, ex-Dissection, ex-Dark Funeral) on drums and Bøddel (the pseudonym of Frank Watkins, Obituary) on bass. Infernus cited the ecclesiastical writer Adam of Bremen as the inspiration of the album's title, parodying his maxim Quantos Possunt ad Christianitatem Trahunt. Infernus began work on the album in October 2006, as he was about to serve a prison sentence for "gross negligent

    True Norwegian Black Metal - Live in Grieghallen

    • Year Released: 2008
    True Norwegian Black Metal - Live in Grieghallen is Gorgoroth's first full-length live album. It was recorded live in studio at Grieghallen Lydstudio in Bergen and Threeman Recordings in Stockholm. The songs featured on the album represent the most commonly played songs in Gorgoroth's live set. The cover design by Magnus Wohlfart is radically different from the last three full-length albums, being more reminiscent of the cover of the 1997 album Under the Sign of Hell. Most of the album was recorded before vocalist Gaahl and bassist King ov Hell parted ways with guitarist and band founder Infernus with the intention of using the band's name and assets for themselves. The bass for this album (originally performed by King) was later re-recorded by Infernus. The album was released by Regain Records. Infernus dedicated the album to the late Jon Nödtveidt of Dissection. In July 2008, former members Gaahl and King - then recognised as the trademark owners of Gorgoroth by select institutions until their trademark application was deemed to be invalid in March 2009 - posted a MySpace bulletin announcing that "Swedish court authorities (Malmö tingrett) have sided with Gorgoroth copyright

    Twilight of the Idols: In Conspiracy With Satan

    • Year Released: 2003
    Twilight of the Idols (In Conspiracy with Satan) is the sixth album by Norwegian black metal band Gorgoroth. It was released in 2003 through Nuclear Blast and reissued in 2006 through Back on Black Records. This is the first album on which Infernus was not the main song writer. Instead, the music for this album was composed by bassist King ov Hell and drummer Kvitrafn. The album cover is a depiction of a burning church, but due to the controversy caused by this, some copies of the album feature a picture of the band members instead.
