Posted in Metal, News with tags , , , on 21st October 2015 by izaforestspirit

The Norwegian black metal vocalist Kristian Eivind Espedal a.k.a. Gaahl (ex- Gorgoroth, God Seed, Wardruna) has recently announced that he has started a new project called Gaahl’s Wyrd.

The project now has its own logo, Facebook page and they are scheduled to play their first show at Blekkmetal Festival at USF Verftet in Bergen, Norway on 13-15th November 2015. Since the band hasn’t released anything yet, their set-list will comprise tracks by some of the bands that Gaahl has played with in the past including Trelldom and Gorgoroth. Here’s what  Gaahl had to say about it:

“This festival is a tribute to the old days, so therefore the focus will be on tracks that are from the past. I will bring along some Trelldom songs that have never been played before in a live setting, and I will bring in some Gorgoroth elements, but most likely I don’t think the setting for new songs is the correct one.”

There hasn’t been any updates about the band’s line-up but their frontman stated that they are currently working on some  new songs.
