Guitarists Infernus and Tormentor are the center of the Norwegian black metal outfit Gorgoroth, which took its name from the work of J.R.R. Tolkien. Despite numerous lineup changes, especially in the revolving-door rhythm section, Gorgoroth's basic, few-frills take on the trademark Norwegian sound remained fairly steady, and the group eventually managed to land an international deal with Nuclear Blast. The band's origins date back to 1993, the year its first demo was recorded; the original lineup featured vocalist Hat, bassist Kjettar, and drummer Goat Pervertor. Samoth, of Norwegian black metal legends Emperor, played bass on the group's official debut, Pentagram, which was released on the small Malicious label later that year. As the follow-up Antichrist was being recorded, various personnel turnovers ensued; by the time the dust settled and the album was released in 1995, vocalist Pest had joined up, Frost of Satyricon had temporarily taken over the drum post, and bassist Storm became part of the live lineup. For 1997's Under the Sign of Hell, bassist Ares (of Aeturnus) and drummer Grim (also of Borknagar) joined, and the latter was quickly replaced by another member of Aeturnus, Vrolok. Destroyer, Gorgoroth's first album for Nuclear Blast, appeared in 1998, featuring another guest appearance by Frost plus new bassist T-Reaper and guest synth player Daimonion. Nuclear Blast reissued the band's first three albums internationally in 1999; the following year, Gorgoroth returned with Incipit Satan, featuring vocalist Gaahl, bassist King Ov Hell, and drummer Sgt. Erichsen. ~ Steve Huey
