Ov Hell

The origins of this project date back to 2009, when former Gorgoroth 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 was released. 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. This is always meant to be a studio-only project working around the various members' schedules, and the group never recorded again, apparently disbanding in 2012.
