VINTERSORG, the Swedish band led by BORKNAGAR frontman Andreas Hedlund (a.k.a. Vintersorg), has extended its worldwide recording contract with Napalm Records "to include multiple releases," according to a posting on the Napalm web site. "Band mastermind Andreas Hedlund is currently working on new material, which promises to direct more of its attention to the folk metal elements that bodly decorated past works."
VINTERSORG previously announced that its upcoming album had the working title of "Solens Rötter" (Swedish for "The Sun's Roots"). The follow-up to 2004's "The Focusing Blur" will not feature contributions from Steve DiGiorgio (SADUS, SEBASTIAN BACH, TESTAMENT, DEATH) and drummer Asgeir Mickelson (SPIRAL ARCHITECT, BORKNAGAR), both of whom performed on the band's last two releases.
Vintersorg's collaboration with BORKNAGAR's Oystein G. Brun (guitars and programming), dubbed CRONIAN, released its debut album, "Terra", in the U.S. in April 2006 via Century Media Records. The CD, which was issued in Europe on March 27, was mastered by Dan Swanö at Unisound.
