Borknagar - Drummer Quits The Band


Borknagar have issued the following update:

"Due to the latest years evolving differences in musical ideas and visions, Asgeir Mickelson has decided to quit Borknagar. The split happens in a friendly manner and with mutual respect for the decision that he has made. He will remain a good friend of the band. We wish to thank him for a great collaboration over the years and the best of luck with future endeavours! The split will have little or no effect on the schedule of the forthcoming album. We are currently working on pre-productions and we are heading for an early-next-year release. As stated before, the new album will regain the musical forces that dominated the 4 first albums. So beware!"

I certainly freaking hope so. This whole progressive phase was getting on my nerves...

Long live Vintersorg! Origin was ok, but I feel it was a failed experiment for Borknagar...

The level of last two albums was going down. Epic was too similar to Empiricism, and Origin is a failed experiment. Anywary, Great band!!!:)

As much as I love Vintersorg, I think both Vortex and Garm fit better with Borknagar.

Considering that Vintersorg recently stepped back a little bit from his prog phase with Solens Rotter though I do have high hopes for a more folkish resurgence with Borknagar.
