ABORYM‘s Attila Csihar, most notable for his vocal contributions on MAYHEM‘s De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas, was arrested this week in Treviso, Italy and charged with possession of 158 tablets of ecstasy and several grams of hash. The band issued the following statement:
“We don’t know yet about how much he will get, but a trial should be set around December. Cross your fingers upside down! We will make you have news as soon as we get them, so many things you may hear about that case NOT coming from US may be as well considered pure bullshit.
“Now, before you start thinking about that: ABORYM WON’T stop because of this. We will continue (as Attila himself asked us to do) and our third masterpiece with Attila Csihar on vocals will be released in January 2003 by Code666 in Europe and later by WW3 (Mercenary Musick) in USA, as previously planned. His arrest wont affect in any way the release of such a masterpiece. This shitty situation is not enough to make us turn back or stop. We will continue to play and perform the most extreme music.”
The aforementioned album will be titled With No Human Intervention. Several guest artists will appear on the album including Bård “Faust” Eithun (DISSECTION, ex-EMPEROR), Nattefrost (CARPATHIAN FOREST), and Irrumator (ANAAL NATHRAKH).
