Singer VINTERSORG To Sit Out BORKNAGAR's BRUTAL ASSAULT Appearance; ATHERA To Step In

A short video clip of Norwegian/Swedish avantgarde metallers BORKNAGAR rehearsing for their August 10 appearance at the Brutal Assault festival in the Czech Republic can be seen below. Filling in for BORKNAGAR singer Andreas "Vintersorg" Hedlund at the show will be Pål Mathiesen (a.k.a. Athera) of SUSPERIA and CHROME DIVISION.

Comments Vintersorg: "A huge thank you to Athera for stepping in for me at Brutal Assault! I have been prevented from going due to work-related issues, but I wish all the best to the guys on Saturday! This is, of course, not a sign of me leaving the band (I'm already working on the vocal lines for new songs) and the ship of BORKNAGAR will set sails even if one member is out."

BORKNAGAR's latesst album, "Urd", was released March 27, 2012 in North America via Century Media Records. The CD was recorded with Jens Bogren at Fascination Street Studios (OPETH, PARADISE LOST, KATATONIA) in Örebro, Sweden.

The "Urd" artwork was designed by Brazilian artist Marcelo Vasco, who has not only already worked on BORKNAGAR's previous "Universal" release but also with artists such as SOULFLY, BELPHEGOR, EINHERJER and KEEP OF KALESSIN.

Drums and percussion on "Urd" were performed by David Kinkade (SOULFLY, ex-MALEVOLENT CREATION).
