ICS Vortex Recruited For Asgeir Mickelson's God Of Atheists

Asgeir Mickelson has issued the following announcement about recruiting ICS Vortex and Trym for his God Of Atheists band:

"I’m proud to announce that ICS Vortex will be singing for my God Of Atheists project. Drums were recorded by Trym (Emperor, Zyklon, Enslaved), and the rhythm guitars were recorded by me (solos will be done by someone a lot better than me…).

"God Of Atheists is the extreme metal project which I wrote most of the music for in 2008. One song was originally written for Borknagar back in 2004 but was never finished so I rewrote it and it’s now way too brutal for Borknagar’s style. The over all style is kind of 'Norwegian black metal done death metal.' It’s brutal but also very melodic.

"Both Mr. Vortex and I are looking forward to work on this album the upcoming months, and I’m sure Vortex’ awesome vocal style will add a new dimension to the songs. I just need to write some venomous lyrics first… Thankfully there’s a lot of venom in my head…

"And, if you like a project with Trym, Vortex and me, I think you will like the other musicians who’ve agreed to play on it. Exciting times!"

Is it just me or is it hilarious that of all people Asgeir Mickelson hires someone to play drums on his album?

"Storm Seeker" was an awesome collaboration in my mind so I'll definitely be checking this out... hopefully there will still be another Arcturus album though?

Vortex and Mickelson. The words "this will be good" is an understatement. Anxiously awaiting one of the few good and original future projects out there right now.
