The origins of this project date back to 2009, when former
members Gaahl and King ov Hell decided to form a new band following
their acrimonious split from Gorgoroth.
That band was named God Seed, but after a time it folded, with Gaahl
deciding to retire from the music business.
King eventually recruited a veritable black metal supergroup for this
project, and in 2010 The Underworld Regime
While there's nothing wrong here, the album has a sort of
black-metal-by-the-numbers feel, with all the trademarks of the genre
in place but nothing really standing out.
Apparently this is set to be a studio-only project working around the
various members' schedules, so it remains to be seen whether King
can develop a more substantive style moving forward.
