I.C.S Vortex - Announces Solo Album Details


I.C.S Vortex (Borknagar, ex-Dimmu Borgir, ex-Arcturus) has revealed more details about his solo release, entitled Storm Seeker:

"I finally got the master tape of the first ICS Vortex album! Storm Seeker contains 11 tracks and holds 45 minutes of groovy hooks and signature clean vocals. Brewed in a dirty metal pot, ingrediens included are Stoner Rock mashed with BM, 70's prog spiked Pagan and alternative roots fried Norwegian style. Some of the song titles are "Skoal!", "Dogsmacked", "Oil in Water" and "Odin's Tree".

It's been a year of sporadic work at Toproom Studio with engineer Børge Finstad. My good old teammate from Borknagar, Asgeir Mickelson (Sarke, Spiral Architect), handles the drums, and Terje "Cyrus" Andersen added some solos. Mix was done by Børge, Asgeir and me. A record deal is in the works and we're looking at a release in good time before summer 2011.

The solo project has pretty much evolved into a band, and on future live appearances the recording line-up will be joined by Jens F. Ryland (Borknagar) on guitar and Steinar Gundersen (Spiral Architect, Sarke) on bass."

Stoner rock with BM ? Interesting indeed

Just hope it won't be a Borknagar clone

It's probably going to be with Garm rather than Vortex.

This will be interesting, sounds like a multi-headed hydra fusing the different styles of the bands he's been in. We'll see how it turns out eventually, make or break i Suppose.

Dude, you couldn't have put that better. Especially using the word "colossal", which is one of Vortex's biggest songs. Hahaha, good to see back, Gallant.

Vortex, best of luck im glad to hear that Vortex is hyped. however ,I feel that his clean vocals might be a little overdone on this album. Best of luck to him and knowing that less is more. Respect

Glad to see someone agrees with me. And man, I can't wait to be back full-time. It's been so frustrating not being able to lurk the forums and contribute reviews for such a lengthy period of time.

See you in the showtbawkz babe!

Okay, good to know.
I knew they were getting the band back together, but I was unsure of who were going to handle the vocals.

I have complete faith in this becoming something good, his own band Lamented Souls sounds excellent and that stuff is older then the world itself.
Itll probally not have very much grunting in it if at all, but im completely comfortable with that as grunting for me is all but a requirement, especially if vortex is in the game.
