Gaahl re-joined God Seed in 2012. In January that year they released the live album Live at Wacken. It was recorded back in 2008 whilst the band still toured under the name "Gorgoroth". The set consists entirely of songs written by either King or Gaahl.
In October they released their first studio album, I Begin. The band arose as a splinter band from the circumstances surrounding the dispute over the legal owners of the band name Gorgoroth. Having lost their claim to the name, Gaahl (vocalist, Gorgoroth and others, such as Trelldom) and King Ov Hell (bass, Gorgoroth and others, such as Jotunspor) continued with the style and musical ideas they contributed to Gorgoroth with God Seed, what was intended to be the continuation of their musical vision. The name "God Seed" was chosen for many reasons; it represents the will to grow, the god within man and nature and the will to reach one's highest potential. God Seed is also the title of a track from the last album released under the Gorgoroth banner and in that respect it symbolizes what is brought from the past into a new beginning and a new future.
