The doors to Club Palermo opened two hours later than scheduled, forcing support acts DESCARNADO and MEDIUM to play heavily abbreviated sets.
When ABBATH finally took the stage, the band consisted only of its visibily inebriated namesake frontman (real name Olve Eikemo) alongside bassist Mia Wallace and drummer Ukri “Uge” Suvilehto.
According to rumors spread earlier that day says Abbath had gotten into an argument with guitarist Ole André Farstad, who reportedly decided to stay at the hotel and skip the gig.
As seen in the footage below, the band tried to open the concert with “Count The Dead” at least twice, only for Abbath to drop his guitar on the ground and throw himself into the crowd.
Then after performing “very poor version” of “Tyrants” by Abbath‘s previous band IMMORTAL, before he left the stage and was taken to the dressing room, from which he did not re-emerge to finish the set.
