Borknagar Parts Ways With Drummer Asgeir Mickelson

Norwegian black metal band Borknagar have parted ways with their drummer Asgeir Mickelson, who has been with the band since 1999.

Borknagar's guitarist Øystein Brun issued the following statement:

"Due to the latest years evolving differences in musical ideas and visions, Asgeir Mickelson has decided to quit Borknagar. The spilt happens in friendly manner and with mutual respect for the decision that he has made. He will remain a good friend of the band. We wish to thank him for a great collaboration over the years and the best of luck with future endeavours! The split will have little or no effect on the schedule of the forthcoming album. We are currently working on pre- productions and we are heading for an early- next- year release. As stated before, the new album will regain the musical forces that dominated the 4 first albums. So beware!"

Asgeir Mickelson has played bass and guitar for a variety of metal bands, most recently providing the drumming on the upcoming Ihsahn album "angL".
