    Erik Tiwaz(aka Tyr) part ways with BORKNAGAR.


    Erik Tiwaz(aka Tyr) has decided to leave the BORKNAGAR fold, due to general disagreements. The split happened in a friendly manner and with mutual respect.
    The band wants to wish him the best of luck for future endeavours!

    More news- in way more positive terms- will follow soon!​

    This sucks. I enjoyed his basslines on Universal more and more. Maybe he will rejoin again. Until this happens, i wish him all the best!

    Damn! Borknagar looked like a band again with 6 full-time members, a very good new album, even plans for more live activity then this comes.
    I do hope for a more detailed explanation, but on the other hand, what's there to explain about such a situation?
    Any replacements? Or the position is still open?

    Come to think of it, they should get Simen play the bass again and have two great vocalists in the same band. Now that would be something...
    I mean this is soooo obvious, I'd bet some money on this :)

    Erik will be missed, he's really talented. I hope the next bassist would be someone of his caliber (and hopefully a fretless player).

    I don't think that's gonna happen, but for the ones who believe on that chance, this situation is pretty similar to Dimmu when Nagash left the band and Simen did guest vocals for SBD. I can't see Vortex doing backing vocals. As I wrote on the Vintersorg forum, that would be really weird, specially live (Andreas doing the lead vocals and Simen backing up the songs where he originally did the leads?)

    He should do what's best for him, just keep playing music man!


    Next bass they should get King ov hell, Vortex, or Necrobutcher lol. Steve D is an interesting suggestion but I doubt he'd join the group.

    Yeah I know but he's a fantastic bassist, hey dave, talk to Steve! ): He made wonderful and brutal basslines in vintersorg's albums, also, who made the Oden domain/Archaic... basslines? the basslines in these albums are pretty good, but after tiwaz borknagar is synonymous of fretless bass, soooooo STEVE DIGIORGIO :lol:

    :lol::lol:Yeah, then before you know it, he'll try to hijack the band from Oysten and say "oh he hasn't contributed anything to the band in the last ten years," just like he did with Gorgoroth.

    Then let us continue: Doesn't Lars (Nedland) play bass? Maybe he could play both bass and keyboards at the same time at the gigs hahahahaha.

    That's too bad to hear. Those fucking basses were epic, would have loved to see them live. And :lol: already starts with "VORTEX PLAYS BASS, BRING HIM BACK!"

    Sad to say guys but Vortex hasn't really done anything to my knowledge and if he is working on stuff behind the scenes, he's doing a bad job of promoting it. :( If nothing is out by him in the Fall I am officially giving up.

    Anyways, wish you the best Erik, you were always a cool guy on here and I hope you stick around. Good luck in the future.
