Black Metal Friday: Abbath “Fenrir Hunts” (Live Video, September 2015)
  |  @   |  

The king of Northern darkness has returned! Former Immortal frontman Abbath is back with a brand new band, which is also called Abbath. The band made its live debut back in June at the Tuska Open Air festival in Helsinki, Finland. At that show, most of their set consisted of tunes from Abbath’s (the man) other bands Immortal and the metal supergroup I. They did however debut one new original track called “Fenrir Hunts.”

Now Abbath (the band) has created a live video for the song, which is scheduled to appear (in studio form as opposed to live) on their upcoming debut album. That recording is slated for a January 2016 release on the Seasons of Mist label. Expect an in depth look at that right here at GoD as the release date approaches.
