Olve Eikemo born 27 June  , better known by his stage name Abbath Doom Occulta or simply Abbath , is a Norwegian musician best known as a founding member of the black metal band Immortal. While working with Old Funeral, he also joined Demonaz's band Amputation which later became Immortal. He also plays bass in Demonaz's eponymous project. Although he is primarily a guitarist, he is also proficient as a bassist and a drummer, having recorded all drums for Immortal albums Pure Holocaust and Battles in the North. Following his departure from Immortal in , he announced that he will be forming a new band under the Abbath name. Immortal's history began in as death metal band Amputation. At various times throughout Immortal's existence, Abbath was lead vocalist, bassist, guitarist, keyboardist, drummer, and lyricist, mainly due to the inconsistent line-ups they were able to put together. For a longtime, however, Abbath served the band as vocalist, bassist and studio drummer while Demonaz played lead guitar.
What would that cause be? The singer is arguably the most famous musical act to come out of Norway since a-ha, due to being a founding member of the extremely influential Immortal, one of the bands from the early Norwegian black metal scene. What set Immortal apart from other such groups is that, instead of satanic-themed lyrics, the group focused on darkness and evil in the fictional kingdom of Blashyrkh, which is based on the country landscape of Norway. Reached by phone at his home outside of Bergen, Norway, Abbath is chatty and joking — characteristics not usually associated with black metal. Black metal!
