ABBATH Enters Addiction Rehabilitation

In what can only be described as bittersweet news ABBATH has entered addiction rehabilitation. Good news of course that he is seeking help and hopefully on the road to recovery, but also sad to see anyone get to this condition in the first place.

He released this statement today.

Bergen, 25th of November 2019,


Throughout life you’re dealt different decks of cards. I’ve been fortunate enough to have been given the opportunity to live my dream, which is writing music, putting out records and touring the world, playing to fans all over the globe. For the most part it has been a tremendous ride, but there’s also been moments where things have gone wrong. Most notably during the recent tour of South America, where we had to cancel shows in Argentina and Brazil.

It’s no secret that I’ve been battling addiction. I have now come to realize that it’s time to pick a fight with this demon. I’ve committed myself to a rehab program that’s going to help me get clean once and for all. I feel more motivated and determined than ever to win this battle.

Due to my program, we need to cancel the December shows that we have scheduled with my other band, Bömbers. We do apologize to our fans that was looking forward to these shows. We will make it up to all of you, and we’re currently working on rescheduling these shows.

Right now I’m very much looking forward to be coming back clean, stronger and more focused and fired up than ever.

Europe and USA, you have been warned, we’ll hunt you down like a thunderstorm next year. Nothing is going to stop us.

Horns up!

We wish ABBATH the very best in this and look forward to his triumphant return!
We didn’t touch any previous stories as it was apparent something was wrong. Let he without sin cast the first stone…
