previously described GOD OF ATHEISTS
as "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 overall style is kind of 'Norwegian black metal done death metal.' It's brutal but also very melodic."
He later added: "Except for the two songs I wrote for the last SARKE
album, I am totally aware of the fact that you guys only know me as a drummer, so all I can say is that you'll just have to wait and judge for yourself if I'm capable as a songwriter and guitarist too. Some of the songs were the most challenging stuff Trym
has ever recorded on drums, so the only thing I can promise is that GOD OF ATHEISTS
is no commercial soft shit!"
