GORGOROTH Guitarist Sentenced To Three Years In Prison For Rape.
GORGOROTH guitarist Infernus (real name: Roger Tiegs) was sentenced in a Norwegian court to three years in prison for rape. The incident happened April 27, 2004 when Tiegs, 34, and a friend, 32, brought a 29-year-old woman they met at a nightclub called Garage in Bergen back to Tiegs' appartment after closing hours. The two men allegedly punched the woman in the face and forced her to have sex with them. The defendants admitted that they had sex with the woman, but claimed it was consensual.
"The verdict is full of factual errors and lacks logic and reason. I'm convinced that both these men are innoncent," the defense attorney, Jørgen Riple, told the Norwegian newspaper Bergens Tidende.
Tiegs and his friend, whose name has not been disclosed by the media, were each ordered to pay 100,000 NOK (approximately $16,000) in court costs and an additional 55,000 NOK (approximately $9,000) in punitive damages.
Both men have appealed the verdict.
In February 2005, GORGOROTH frontman Gaahl was sentenced to 14 months in prison for beating a 41-year-old man and threatening to drink his blood.
The 29-year-old, whose real name has not been revealed by the Norwegian media, was charged with a crime that carries a maximum penalty of nine years in prison.
The black metal vocalist was sentenced to one year and two months in jail by the Gulating court of appeals. The original 18-month sentence, which was handed down last May, was reduced by four months while the amount in damages Gaahl is required to pay to the victim was increased from 100,000 NOK (approximately $16,000) to 190,000 NOK (approximately $30,400).

boris // a bao a qu Picture 7"
SuperFi Records 2005
We love boris. This is one of the best ideas for a picture disc I have seen, image seems embedded in black vinyl. Look for me to lift this idea very soon.
The two tunes here are beautiful snapshots of decayed rock ideal. More into the ambient territories with patience and calm.
(from the label's site)
The lyrics for song 2 are as follows:
"Mure wo sute,
omae wa naze tooi,
ima hi wa ugoiteiru,
kuchiru koto wo oshie"
which roughly translates as:
"Abandon the herd,
and still desire,
why are you so distant,
now the sun moves,
teach to be born,
and to fall apart"
Also, A Bao A Qu is a character from the Indian Jainism book. It is a semi-transparent creature who dwells in the bottom of the Tower Of Victory, and accompanies visitors to the top of the Tower. As it goes higher up, its body becomes more visible and colourful. Also, it should be noted that A Bao A Qu is also the name of the fortress / military base that appears in the Japanese anime Mobile Suit Gundam. Make of this what you will! Many thanks to Tomoyuki-san for the translation.
I have 10 copies, that's more than Aquarius Records recieved!
