Guitarist Øystein G. Brun from Norwegian black metallers Borknagar has posted the following announcement regarding the addition of drummer Dave Kinkade (Arsis, Malevolent Creation, Divine Empire, Council Of The Fallen) to the group's ranks:

"Dave Kinkade is the new drummer in Borknagar. His first appearance with the band will be the actual recording of the new album, which will be recorded early next year.

We are exited to finally get a new drummer behind the kit. We have spent quite some time and effort to find suitable and highly skilled replacement for Asgeir Mickelson. Dave has proven to be a fantastic drummer, become a good friend and he shares the same passion for music as the rest of us. We are truly confident that this cooperation will contribute to empower the music of Borknagar even more in the future to come.

Dave Kinkade comments as follows: "It is an absolute honor to be joining Borknagar. Norwegian black metal has always had a Huge impact on my personal influences and taste in music. I look forward to making the new record with them and playing songs that I've been listening to for years. As a drummer, I trust that my playing will fit well with Borknagar's style and that I will not be letting any fans down with the final result."

Now, we are all exited to enter studio in late January to start recording the new album! More news will be launched very soon!"

Hopefully his drumming doesnt sound as sterile and fake as Mickelson... that was the only thing holding Borknagar back.

Cool. I should look more into these guys because their live show was good.

Borknagar rules! Since Dave Kinkade is/was in four other bands, I don't expect to be disappointed by his drumming.

They should try something new. It's been 2 years since Origin and 4 years since Epic. And Origin was a disappointment to me, really

I am currently making the wikipedia page for this drummer David Kinkade.
