    Well, I think that it had a serious meaning behind that statement, at least we've talked just briefly about it. Borknagar's guitar compositions are mainly chord based and that makes it quite easy to trasfer and re-arrange to acoustic versions. And I kknow that Öystein and Lars have sat down(Öystein with a acoustic guitar and Lars behind the grand piano) and just jamed some songs......

    If it will turn into a acurate recording future holds in its embrace...but I think it's a cool idea though.

    An acoustic album would a very interesting idea, since I always thought that their songs could work in an acoustic version. Let's wait and see.

    That's a great idea! :)
    I'll look forward to the realisation ;)

    I doubt Garm will ever get close to his past.

    That's actually true - me and Øystein sat down and tried out quite a few songs (old and new) with the help of a grand piano and an accoustic guitar. It sounded great, so maybe sometime in the future we'll wander down that path....

    BTW if you catch us on tour and get us drunk enough after a show, I'm sure we'll performe it there and then, hehe

    Whoi! This sounds like a GREAT idea!
    I hope it will turn into something you can use :eek:)

    And it would definitely be intersting to hear what
    Vintersorg's voice would add to that kind of music!

    I've also read that interview about instrumental version of debut album. It was in the 2nd number of Mystic Art Magazin (few months after "Borknagar" was realized). There was also something about sounds of nature as i remember. It's a great idea! Think of it :)
