    Good idea, actually he would be a very good solution, too. I like his playing and technique as well. Bork even used one of his basses on Epic, so there IS a connection (not forgetting Asgeir) :)

    Yeah, the basses were incredibly nice, as if Odin himself had made them.

    I would still give Vortex a chance, I'm sure he's working on lots of stuff.

    Yeah, Lars Nordberg would be an excellent choice (as Allfader said). He's not very active right now, is he?

    Hail Tyr. Hope he still posts in these parts, he's always welcome among his people!

    Glad to know it was amicable, as it was with Vortex. We all know Simen eventually came back to make music with Borky, so maybe we'll see Erik again with the band in the future, even if just for a track or two!

    Oh and the best for Erik! Hope I can get to hear your excellent bass-playing and basses sometime soon!

    Question:

    Who will be the moderator now? Without Tyr's banning/warnings, the forum will get out of control!!! Hehe. (I can be the mod if the band wants.)

    Anyway, I think a new bassist wouldn't appear unless the band will do some live shows, since I think a new record won't come on at least 2 years. Hope the new bassist (if there will be one) be as talented and creative as Erik.

    I liked the Asgeir's bass work on Epic but I don't know if he composed the basslines of 'twas made my Erik before the left the band.

    This is unexpected! Best wishes to all, though. Erik is a tremendous bassist.
