Borknagar Side-Project, Ion, Changes Name To Cronian

ION, the Norwegian/Swedish project featuring BORKNAGAR members Oystein G. Brun (guitars and programming) and Vintersorg (vocals and programming), have officially changed their name to CRONIAN.

"Based on evaluation of the musical direction of ION, we have decided to change the name of our duo to CRONIAN," the band write in a statement. "We simply feel that this name, to a larger extent, reflects the general artistic approach of the band. Beside, the fact that there is another band rising with the name ION made our choice rather simple and inevitable. Therefore, we will from this day on officially use CRONIAN as the spearhead of our musical brotherhood.

"The recording of our debut album is in process and we intend to finish the album by the end of the year. What remains to be done is to settle the vocals, add some guitar melodies and obviously to do the mixing. The album will contain 9 songs of atmospheric, eerie and catchy music. Beware!

"We are now in the final round of settling a deal with Century Media Records. An official announcement will be issued soon.

"In regards to a future release we are interested to get in contact with up-and-coming graphic/visual artists. In the first place we are looking for a CRONIAN logo. For those interested, feel free to send us an idea, a draft or whatever. We cannot promise anything to anyone, but everybody will get a response. Feel free to contact us: cronian@gmail.com."
