Abbath OutstriderAbbath is one of the genre’s greatest characters. He’s considered a legend in black metal circles, but unlike his peers, he doesn’t take himself too seriously.

His sudden split with Immortal – a band he fronted for 21 years – surprised many, but a future fronting his own band was assured.

Outstrider is his second outing under the Abbath moniker, and it’s safe to say that his legions of fans will be satisfied with the results. Outstrider fuses Abbath’s Norwegian black metal roots with his love of classic metal, making for a solid combination.

Outstrider by Abbath is out now via Season Of Mist/Rocket.
