19:37 - Jericho Rehling they played with Mastodon and Ghost so it was still a good night. its hard to listen to soft music standing up though so I lost interest.
19:26 - Zaphod Yikes, glad I never saw them around that time. Last time they had a good balance between old and new.
19:24 - Jericho Rehling I saw Opeth about a year after Heritage came out. they played two songs with harsh vocals in two hours
19:19 - Zaphod Yeah, last I saw them he joked about the new vs old as well. Shows he's at least aware of the fan reaction to recent releases.
19:17 - !J.O.O.E.! Mikael would probably make a joke about it before playing it so I guess that would ease the audience a bit. I recall he did the same years ago before playing something off Watershed.
19:15 - Zaphod Yeah, seems to be the way to go. I guess most people would stay though.
19:13 - !J.O.O.E.! I'd love to see the audience reaction to that. I'm guessing they'll play a few songs from those but space them out.

Stay tuned for some visual and textual reports and other shite from the workshop!"
The following message has been put on the official website of Swedish Viking Metal band Thyrfing:
"After a decade in the band, both Thomas Väänänen and Henrik Svegsjö have decided to leave Thyrfing. They have informed us that they lack the motivation needed for another album. We have split ways on good terms, and would like to thank them for all these great years."
With this being said, we hereby welcome Jens Rydén to the band as new vocalist. Jens is best known as founding member and ex-vocalist of Naglfar and recently also for his one-man army Profundi. We all feel very enthusiastic about bringing new blood into the band and it will be very interesting to write and compile the next Thyrfing album together.
Thyrfing has signed a deal with Swedish Regain Records (a.o. Danzig, Marduk, Samael, Overkill) for their next album. The plan right now is to release the album in September. Information about studio and recording will follow shortly at their official website.
