ICS Vortex Streaming New Song "The Blackmobile"

Norway's ICS Vortex has launched the first promotional song, "The Blackmobile," which is taken from the group's "Storm Seeker" debut album, to be released on August 22nd, 2011 in Europe and August 23rd, 2011 in North America via Century Media Records. Check out the song in the clip below.

ICS Vortex, former Dimmu Borgir and current Borknagar/Arcturus member, comments on the track: "This song was written way back when I still felt black metal was dangerous. Now, totally untrue to all that, it's a tribute to the only beast I ever loved."

"Storm Seeker" will be released as initial limited edition digipak, 180g. LP version, and also as digital download.

The ICS Vortex lineup is as follows:

ICS Vortex – Vocals (ex Dimmu Borgir, Borknagar, Arcturus)
Asgeir Mickelson – Drums (Sarke, Spiral Architect, ex Borknagar, ex Testament)
Terje "Cyrus" Andersen – Guitar (Susperia, ex Satyricon, ex Dimmu Borgir)
Jens F. Ryland – Guitar (Borknagar)
Steinar "Azarak" Gundersen – Bass (Spiral Architect, Satyricon)

Vortex was solemn used in Dimmu Borgir. He was one of the largest reasons i listened to Dimmu B. Whenever it came to his solo in the music, it symbolized pure power and triumph. out of all the singers and instruments in his former band, his victorious voice rang the loudest.
-all hail the truest and most pure voice of black metal.

I'd rather just listen to Borknagar to be honest. He's in that, and it sounds a lot like this

I would rather ICS return to Arcturus but hey, I'll take what I can get - I didn't think it was bad.

I can get on board with this. I have always been a big fan of Vortex though I agree it sounds like what it is - a mix of borknager, arcturus and spiral architect. And that is ok.
