After a heated legal battle over the use of its name, legendary black metal band Immortal has officially disbanded. Abbath, founding member of the band, said that he plans to continue making music under his own name as a solo artist.
Work had already been completed on a new Immortal album before the group’s split, but no word has been issued on when or if this music will see a release. As it stands, 2007’s “All Shall Fall” seems likely to be Immortal’s final recording.
