The recordings and mixing will take place between April and June and the album is scheduled for release through Regain Records in October. Stay tuned for some visual and textual reports and other shite from the workshop!"
Sweden's THYRFING have issued the following update:
"After a decade in the band, both (singer) Thomas Väänänen and (guitarist) Henrik Svegsjö have decided to leave Thyrfing. They have informed us that they lack the motivation needed for another album.
We have split ways on good terms, and would like to thank them for all these great years.
With this being said, we hereby welcome Jens Rydén to the band as new vocalist. Jens is best known as founding member and ex-vocalist of NAGLFAR and recently also for his one-man army PROFUNDI.
We all feel very enthusiastic about bringing new blood into the band and it will be very interesting to write and compile the next Thyrfing album together.
For the time being we will go on with one guitar player, and time will tell what happens to the second guitar position…"

The organizers of the Heathen Crusade Metalfest and the members of THYRFING are happy to announce that Toni Kocmut will be performing several songs with THYRFING during their set at the Heathen Crusade. For those of you who do not recognize the name, Toni performs the “clean” vocals on THYRFING’S releases. What makes this performance special is that this will be the first time that Toni has EVER performed live with THYRFING.
Patrik Lindgren of THYRFING had the following to say regarding Toni’s upcoming performance: "Of course we are very excited and thrilled about the fact that Toni is about to perform with us for the first time. We have been working with him on the albums for six years now, and have known him even longer than that, so of course the idea has been up for discussion, but now the plans are finally being realized. This addition to the line-up is making this gig even more unique than it already is, and I hope that the audience will appreciate this exclusive feature."
