Norway's THE KONSORTIUM has announced the addition of guitarist Teloch (NIDINGR, UMORAL, NUNFUCKRITUAL, ORCUSTUS, GOD SEED, 1349, GORGOROTH) to the group's ranks. The band says, "We are dead certain that his authoritarian and razor-sharp riffing will fit perfectly with our music."THE KONSORTIUM's full-length debut is tentatively due in early 2010 via Agonia Records. The group says, "Being one man short has unfortunately stalled the progress of the album recording. However, with this latest addition to our ranks, the first steps towards a finished album can be taken." According to a press release, THE KONSORTIUM performs "black metal with various thrash, avant-garde and non-metal influences creating [its] own atmosphere and identity. THE KONSORTIUM features various members. Some of them better and some of them [not as well] known to the metal (but not only) community."
