OTYG, the side project of VINTERSORG/BORKNAGAR vocalist Vintersorg and VINTERSORG guitarist Mattias Marklund, has been officially put to sleep, according to an official statement from the duo. Both me (Vintersorg) and Mattias feel that we can't go on with OTYG as we have lost our burning inspiration and lust in that musical arena. And under those circumstances we've decided to, instead of do a recording that we never would have the true feeling for and probably couldn't fold our musical spirit into, just let it be. Recordings just for the sake of it never turns out great, and our policy is to put our deepest emotion and soul in what ever we do, so..We need to challenge ourselves to the utter edge or our abilities and unfortunately we don't have that situation. Maybe in the future we'll do a recording if our minds and souls want that, but right now it would be to go back several years on our musical course, which every artist strives to avoid. Progression is far more exciting than regression!!
