I.C.S Vortex Rejoins Borknagar As Second Vocalist

Borknagar mainman Oystein G. Brun has posted the following statement online, announcing the return of I.C.S Vortex to the band.

"Even though Mr. Vortex has been absent from the band for almost a decade due to other musical endeavors, he has always remained a good, loyal and supportive friend of the band. Personally, I have always had a feeling that our paths would cross again — and now they do. I would like to welcome Mr. Vortex back in the fold, and I am really excited to get another opus done with the strongest lineup Borknagarhas ever had.

"Just imagine the musical potential having two of the best and most renowned vocalists in the scene in the same band. This is surely a huge step forward and another exciting chapter in the musical legacy of Borknagar — and I feel like a lucky bastard being part of this. The new album will surely knock your socks off and set some new standards in the world of metal!"

It'd be nice if he were featured on most of the songs, and not just used as a background singer. There is potential for greatness here. Still waiting for the solo album..

I'm like the opposite of RTB - couldn't even pick out what he sings on with Dimmu but looking forward to the next Borknagar album for sure to see what he can do.
