  1. Anyone else into this awesome Norwegian black metal band? Every single musician in Borknagar is very talented, especially the bassist. Makes me think of Steve Harris....except playing black metal. :D

    My favorite song is "Colossus" by far. It's a tad more metal than black metal, though. Still amazing!

    Haven't heard of them but another incredible Norwegian metal band is Spiral Architect. It's kind of like jazz-fusion death metal. The bassist Lars Norberg is absolutely incredible. His playing is very jazzy.

    Speaking of metal, anyone here listen to any Cynic,Gordian Knot, or Aghora w/ Sean Malone? Another amazing player who pulls off alot of melodic horn-like lines in the context of a heavy group.

    I'm also a big Borknagar fan. I like their current lineup, although obviously Vortex is irreplaceable.

    It used to sound kind of like a heavy opera at times, but now they have more of a "gothic" sound IMHO.

    Had the chance to interview Vortex a couple of years ago (as a member of Dimmu Borgir). Nice guy and very interesting to talk to. Interestingly, he's never had any voice training at all!
