Borknagar - Part Ways With Bassist


Erik Tiwaz (aka Tyr) has parted ways with Borknagar again (he already left the band once in 2004 and re-joined in 2008).

Tiwaz has decided to leave the Norwegian melodic black metal outfit due to "general disagreements". The band insists that the split happened in a "friendly manner and with mutual respect". The band also wishes him the best of luck for future endeavours.

More news to follow soon.

There goes Mr fretless 8-string bass. Too bad, he looked way cool on stage.

Pretty bad news. IMHO he's been the most talented musician of Borknagar, and that says a lot. I'm curious to see what he's up to next.

Got Mayhem?
Vortex coming back would be interesting...though an Arcturus reunion (which has been hinted at) would be preferable.

After their album Epic their work has not been good in my opinion, maybe bringing Vortex back could get them back to where they are making albums better than Universal album, it's still a shame Tyr left, maybe he has something lined up that will blow everyone away

Hmm... Maybe he'll join Dimmu Borgir as their new bassist and Vortex will come back to Borknagar! I can actually see it now...

Sounds like an awful waste of talent. And I'm not speaking of Vortex
