Kristoffer ‘Garm’ Rygg (Ulver) is set to featuring on two songs ’Winter Thrice’ and ’Terminus’ for Borknagar’s highly anticipated new album. This collaboration also marks his return to the band since the release of The Olden Domain back in 1997.
Originally consisting of members from Enslaved, Immortal and Gorgoroth, the Nordic force behind the band remained a strong selling point for their early success as they focused their energies towards themes around nature.
Since then Borknagar have continued unleashing their metallic force through ICS Vortex (Arcturus) on vocals. Having toured alongside bands such as Emperor, In Flames and Cradle of Filth and released ten albums to date, each experimenting with black, progressive and folk metal.
Despite moving Ulver into a more electronic, and in some cases more classical direction, Garm has also done guest vocals with Dimmu Borgir, as well as producing Mayhem’s Wolf’s Liar Abyss. Most recently he has been noted for working on the debut album for Danish solo project Myrkur.
The new album is due for release via Century Media and will be mixed at Fascination Street Studio in June 2015.
