One of the most iconic figures in heavy metal history is heading out on tour in a couple of days and it promises to be tremendous. Alongside Children of Bodom and Exmortus, Abbath (fronted by none other than Abbath Doom Occulta) will be bringing hits from the Immortal days, and new stuff from the amazing self titled album released earlier this year. This is one of the best line-ups we have seen that is balanced from top to bottom so I can't encourage you enough to get out and support what promises to be a great night of music and theatrics. I've seen COB several times and they never disappoint, but it will be a true battle for band of the night with Abbath on the bill. Find the details on dates below. - Martell

ABBATH are touring in support of their eponymous debut. The critically acclaimed album, hailed as "a classic example of how second wave black metal exemplars can reinvent themselves with style and grace without sacrificing anything in the way of integrity. The album is ridiculously tight, satisfyingly intense, and both steeped in tradition and full of surprises." by Decibel Magazine, was recently featured in the publication's top albums of 2016, at the #5 spot.
'ABBATH', which "shows the singer and guitarist further exploring his trailblazing combination of frostbitten Norwegian black metal and more classic metal elements." (Guitar World), is hailed as "a furiously energetic LP that cements his status as black metal's favorite son (of northern darkness), (Decibel Magazine).
