According to the Brazilian metal site El Culto, Abbath played a two-song concert in Buenos Aires, Argentina on November 13. The band was performing at Club Palermo and the night started really off, as the club opened two hours later than scheduled, forcing the two support acts DESCARNADO and MEDIUM to play a few minutes sets. When ABBATH finally took the stage, you could see the frontman – that was into an apparent state of drunkenness – alongside bassist Mia Wallace and drummer Ukri “Uge” Suvilehto. Minutes before a rumor was spread, of a strong discussion with guitarist Ole André Farstad. that reportedly decided to stay at the hotel.
ABBATH reportedly tried to open the concert –at least three times- with “Count The Dead”, only for the frontman to drop his guitar on the ground after 10 seconds and throw himself into the crowd. They then tried to perform a “very poor version” of the song “Tyrants” by Abbath’s former band IMMORTAL -that lasted a few minutes longer – before Abbath left the stage and was taken to the dressing room, from which he did not return to finish the set.
The fan’s fury quickly flooded social media, with many of them asking for a refund. Till now, no official announcement has been issued.
