CRONIAN: BORKNAGAR Side-Project To Release 'Terra' Next Year

CRONIAN (formerly ION), the Norwegian/Swedish project featuring BORKNAGAR members Oystein G. Brun (guitars and programming) and Vintersorg (vocals and programming), have signed a worldwide three-album deal with Century Media Records.

Regarding how the project came together, CRONIAN said in a statement, "Already back in 1999 we had plans to do a project together, something beside respective bands like VINTERSORG and BORKNAGAR. The idea floated around for a few years in our minds, but in 2002 we started the actual process of constructing a musical expression, then under the name ION. We had a mutual agreement to only proceed with the band if we managed to establish a unique and original sound. That's what we have done and that's what we prepare to show the world....

"The debut album will be released early next year, a more specific date will be announced soon. The title of the album will be 'Terra' and the album will contain 9 songs. Some songtitles are: 'Cronian', 'The Alp', 'Iceolated' and 'Nonexistence'. The nature of the music is cold, atmospheric (eerie!) and catchy. So beware!"
