British/Norwegian black metal project CODE has announced the addition of vocalist Simen Hestnaes (a.k.a. ICS Vortex; DIMMU BORGIR, ARCTURUS, ex-BORKNAGAR, LAMENTED SOULS) to the group's ranks. "Obviously we are really excited about this," the band writes in a press release. "It is going to do great things for the new material. Writing is underway now and the plan is to record [the second CODE album] this spring."

CODE's current lineup is:

Simen Hestnaes (DIMMU BORGIR, ARCTURUS) - Vocals
Asgeir Mickelson (SPIRAL ARCHITECT, BORKNAGAR) - Drums
Viper (a.k.a. Vicotnik) (DHG) - Bass, Backing Vocals

In other news, CODE will soon be issuing the vinyl version of its debut album, "Nouveau Gloaming". Aort is also reworking the old demo song "Pollen of Black Plume" for a very special upcoming compilation that he is "very honored to be a part of." He said, "Anyone who has an elephant-like memory for all things black metal in the early '90s should get excited about this too."

"Nouveau Gloaming" was issued in 2005 via Spikefarm Records.
