After the incident that occurred last night with ex-Immortal front man Abbath storming off stage after destroying his guitar, Inferno Metal Festival have made an official statement on their social media pages. Read the full statement below.
“We are very sorry that Abbath left the stage after 30 minutes into their show. Of course this has nothing to do with the festival and an official statement will come from the band. We hope you all had a great festival even that the night was cut a bit shorter than expected. Thanks for your understanding!”

Fans have expressed outrage after ex-Immortal legend Abbath has bailed on his Inferno Metal Festival headlining slot. The show features such artists as Gorgoroth, Venom Inc, Destruction and Carcass over the course of three days. Unfortunately the event finished with a rather negative end as a rather intoxicated Abbath walked off stage after destroying his guitar.
According to crowd members on social media, the band managed to get through three songs when the black metal legend got upset at some technical issues with his guitar, trashed his equipment and never came back to finish his set.
Fans are already voicing their opinion:
“That Was Bullshit”
Andy Clarke, member of the popular up coming band The Crawling (check out their debut album here) commented:
“Yep, Abbath stormed off after 3 songs and ain’t coming back. Fuckin hell like? What a disgraceful end to Inferno.”
Abbath recently left (or was fired) from the Immortal after issues with the other two band members. They claimed that Abbath’s alcohol issues got in the way of making music and have since went on to record a new album without him.
Abbath himself released a self titled debut album which scored well with critics. You can read our review here.
