The release of the upcoming Wormwood album is set to 16th July.
The Swedish black metal band was forced to change the name of their upcoming album to “Arkivet” after a letter of demand from Fonus. The funeral home threatens with financial measures if this is not changed as they have rights to the name and claim that there may be confusion and infringe on their service. Wormwood themselves knew about the service but were not aware that they were not allowed to use the term. The band clarifies:
– They claimed that it would create confusion and infringe on their service. After legal correspondence between both parties, we decided simply to avoid problems and change the name of the album to “Arkivet”. As a band, of course we think this is incredibly ridiculous, but what can we do? We are an underground band and cannot afford to quarrel with lawyers for days on end.
