A Norwegian black metal band formed by former Immortal vocalist Abbath Doom Occulta after his departure from that band, with bassist King (formerly of Gorgoroth) and (formerly) drummer Creature of Benighted. The band released its self-titled debut album, Abbath, in January 2016.
In April 2015, Metalhammer announced that Abbath Doom Occulta had recruited members to the band, specifically King Ov Hell from God Seed and drummer Creature to participate in the band. They also recruited Vredehammer guitarist and vocalist Per Valla to tour with the band as lead guitarist. The band is set to enter a recording studio later this year to work on a new 2016 album. During their Debut performance at Tuska Open Air 2015, they played a completed song titled Fenrir Hunts that will be featured on their upcoming 2016 album.
Their debut self-titled album Abbath was released January 22, 2016 on Season of Mist. On December 12, 2015, it was announced that drummer Creature left the band. Several days later on December 15, live member Per Valla left the band. At the start of 2016 Gabe Seeber, donning the Creature mask, joined as live drummer replacing Creature Kevin Foley and replacing Per Valla is Ole André Farstad, who played on the debut album, joined as live guitarist.
