Original Story:

Abbath frontman Abbath Doom Occulta (aka Olve Eikemo) appears to have indulged a bit too much before his set in Buenos Aires, Argentina last night, November 13th. After various stumbles, the show was cut some two songs into the set, leaving some fans in attendance angry and demanding refunds. To add insult to injury, The band were said to have only delivered partial performances of those two songs. Abbath guitarist ‘Raud’ Ole André Farstad is said to have not even bothered taking to the stage at the show, perhaps due Eikemo‘s condition. Some fan-filmed footage from the disastrous show can be found below:
