Borknagar Bassist Joins Thornbound

Norwegian bassist Erik Tiwaz (a.k.a. Tyr; BORKNAGAR, EMPEROR, SATYRICON) sent the following update to blabbermouth.net:

"Just got recruited for the bassist position in THORNBOUND a couple of months ago, along with drummer Asgeir Mickelson [SPIRAL ARCHITECT, BORKNAGAR]. THORNBOUND had just released a three-track demo before Asgeir and I joined. This isn't just another studio band thankfully, but a band with the ambitions and dedication that a proper metal band SHOULD have, a band that rehearse regularly and do actual TOURS instead of the odd job here and there.

"Professionally speaking, death metal is a new scene for me, as I have usually just tended to the blacker side of metal in my carreer. Of course I have been a fan of death metal bands for many years, I just haven't been in one before.

"We're currently working on a full length album, which will be recorded by next summer in Asgeir Mickelson's MultiMono Studio."

Must have been a slow news day in the Norwegian Metal camp: "Hmmm, I think I'll sit down and type out my career specs for Blabbermouth since no one else obviously cares," ponders Tyr as he sips another non-fat double-tall no-foam latte.
