This might be alright... They shouldn't let Nagash (f*** this' Lex Icon' bollocks) anywhere near the microphone unless he's shrieking, because the dude flat out can't sing.... It will be interesting to see if they go with clean vox for this project as the musical direction would imply it.

I'm sure that Shagrath can easily rerecord Stormblast while partaking in a side project simultaneously.

f*** Shagrath should sing, he's the singer of the greatest band in the world!!!!! They SHOULD get Nagash in there, that'd be awsome to hear. But if Shagrath does sing, I wonder what his voice sounds like you know, it's not gonna sound like Dimmu Borgir.

They should leave stormblast alone, Stormblast is an awsome album, if they re-record it it's gonna lose it's flavor.
