BORKNAGAR Parts Ways With Guitarist JENS F. RYLAND

Norwegian epic black metal pioneers BORKNAGAR have parted ways with their longtime guitarist Jens F. Ryland. The band says in a statement: "We would like to thank and salute him for all the time we shared on and off stage the past 20 years. The very best of luck with all future endevours!"

BORKNAGAR is working on material for a new studio album, tentatively due in late 2018 or early 2019.

The band's latest disc, "Winter Thrice", was released in January 2016 via Century Media Records. Just like 2012's "Urd", the effort was mixed by Jens Bogren at Fascination Street Studios (OPETH, KREATOR, AMON AMARTH) and packaged in artwork by Marcelo Vasco (SLAYER, MACHINE HEAD, SOULFLY).

"Winter Thrice" featured contributions from four vocalists, including the return of original singer and ULVER mastermind Kristoffer Rygg, a.k.a. Garm, who guested on two songs.
