Isvind Member To Guest On New Orcrist Album

Goblin (drums/bass/vocals), of cult Norwegian black metallers ISVIND, will contribute lyrics and vocals on three tracks of the new ORCRIST album, which is currently being recorded at the band’s own studio in their hometown near Milan, Italy. This will not be the first time the two bands have collaborated, having released a split 7” in 2003, although it will be the first time any of the members actually perform together. The music is being written by Orcrist drummer Grav, guitarist Bhaal, and bass player Mattia Zero to Infinity, whilst lyrics for the remaining tracks will be written and performed by the band’s own vocalist Ghosta. A label is being sought. A band known for its traditional, old school approach to Black Metal, Orcrist intend to introduce a change of pace into the new album.

which has received an excellent response from those who have heard it. I think we were all reluctant to try it initially, but we realised that it is not good for a band to remain static in its approach. We have progressed as writers and musicians, and the new material needed to reflect that. We will never, however, lose the “underground” ethos. It is too important to us, and equally so to our fans”.

Orcrist is an Italian underground Black Metal band with a history of working with Norwegian bands. The band recently released Black Destroyer, a split 7” on Temple of Darkness Records with Norwegians BEASTCRAFT, and have in the past contributed not only the intro on the Ildjarn tribute album Gathered Under The Banner Of Strength And Honour, but also wrote the lyrics, with Ildjarn’s blessing, for Unknown Harmony a previously un-named track on the same album. Tracks from Black Destroyer and their last album Black Blood Raised, can be heard on the official Orcrist Myspace page.
