Crest of Darkness founder and frontman Ingar Amlien, together with drummer Kjetil Hektoen, will join members of Legiones, Enthral, and The Embraced in a specially formed band called Sythanagon Winged to perform five songs by the late Thomas “Quorthon” Forsberg, founder of Bathroy and one of the pioneers of the first wave of black and pagan/viking metal.
The event, which is billed as “Blood, Fire and Death – In Memory of Quorthon,” will take place on Saturday November 17th at the Fru Lundgreen in Trondheim, Norway. In Addition to Sythanagon Winged, other bands taking part include Chton, Cleaver, Law of the Horseman, and A Sorcery Written in Blood.
Commenting on the Quorthon Tribute event, Crest of Darkness' Amlien stated: “It’s a huge honour to be part of a tribute to an incredible musician. One who has influenced and inspired, and will continue to influence and inspire, generations of other musicians. It’s no exaggeration to say that many of today’s bands would probably not be around without him. Kjetil and I have been rehearsing hard with the rest of the guys and we are ready and very much looking forward to performing the Bathory songs and do them the justice they deserve.”
