Abbath is a black metal band formed in 2015 by former Immortal guitarist and vocalist Abbath Doom Occulta after departing from Immortal earlier in 2015. The band released their first album, Abbath, on January 22, 2016, and played live for the first time at Tuska Open Air 2015.

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 was set to enter a recording studio later this year to work on their debut album for a 2016 release. During their debut performance at Tuska Open Air 2015, they played a completed song titled “Fenrir Hunts” that would be featured on then-upcoming debut album. Their debut album, self-titled 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.

On October 6, 2016, Abbath announced on their Facebook page that they are working on their second album, planned for a 2017 release.

In June of 2018, King Ov Hell announced his departure from Abbath in a Facebook post, noting that it was “due to conflicting views on lyrical concepts of the upcoming album. The lyrics are inspired by Swiss psychiatrist Carl Gustav JungKing finds that Jung‘s connection to Christian mysticism is incompatible with the image of the band.”

At the beginning of December, 2018, Abbath posted a sneak peak video on the ABBATH -Official- Facebook page from a recording studio in Krisiansand (NO) with the simple quote, “Be ready…”


Bassist King Ov Hell has left the Norwegian black metal band ABBATH. King, whose real name is Tom Cato Visnes, announced his departure from ABBATH in a post on Facebook. The post read: “King will no longer be
