Abbath bassist uncool with Christian-related lyrics, leaves band

Abbath bassist

The Norwegian black metal band’s record label Season of Mist posted this news today:

ABBATH bass player ‘King’ will no longer be part of the band, due to conflicting views on lyrical concepts of the upcoming album. The lyrics are inspired by Swiss psychiatrist, Carl Gustav Jung. King finds that Jung’s connection to Christian mysticism is incompatible with the image of the band.

King comments: “I wish the members of the actual band, label, and crew all the best for the upcoming shows and the new album. The music itself is nothing short of brilliant! However, I must maintain artistic integrity and respectfully step aside.”

Abbath will soon give an official statement about King’s departure. No shows will be cancelled!

The band’s upcoming tour dates are all in Europe at the moment, and include lots of fests.
