    In case anyone doesn't know, The End Records has Visions from the spiral generator. I ordered mine and got it two days later, free shipping too! Amazing album indeed!

    You're reading that font wrong. What looks like a U is L. So.. It's "Universums Dunkla Alfabet", "Spegelsfären" etc...

    It's supposed to be like that! V didn't even want the lyric for that song printed but I managed to persuade him if the design was 'messed up'.

    Ah he said there was a reason for it, now we all know it was because Asgeir persuaded him :lol: ;)

    You got it! The truth is that the album is about re-occuring ideas inside my head. I actually wrote and played everything on the album. The only thing V did was making me coffee. And sometimes biscuits...

    AHAHAAAAA!! :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

    I knew it! By the way, has Asgeir's drummming improved?
    I think the right influences has made Asgeir a good drummer...
    been listening a lot to Human I guess :D ;)

    Oh! And for those here who don't know Asgeir's middle name,
    heres all of it:
    Asgeir 'Verdens beste trommis' Mickelson

    edit: Fuck this looks like a kiss-ass post now...
    So let's have a serious question: Asgeir - you feel you have
    improved since.. lets say the Spiral Architect recording?

    And soon Asgeir will take over Vintersorg as well as Borknagar. :D

    Anyway, thanks for getting Mr V to reveal the lyrics for that song! Even if they're screwed up.

    Actually I haven't, but I want to. I hate myself for not being into Death when they played Betong in Oslo. I took pictures there and then left... What an ass...

    The reason why I play a lot of stuff on the V-album is because the programmed drums was almost extreme. Compared to the pre-prod demos I play almost nothing... When I play drums in Borknagar it's supposed to be more groove than fills. But not next time hehe.

    Well, just let me tell you're not the only one... and that was the
    shit of living in the northern region of the country at the time :(
    And now it's all too late either way...

    Well, then I guess the next Borknagar is gonna be even better :)

    I just want to say that why I didn't want the lyrics to be in print is cause it's alittle enigma to it, and actually we were supposed to not even print the title of the song at first, but as stated Asgeir managed us to change that....how does he do that???..hehehehe

    We're just very pleased that we had the opportunity to work with the best rhythm section there is. Right, Asgeir?

    I´m satisfied!

    the album will grow on me..

    when writing lyrics are you on any kind of drugs!? hahah... jag bara skojar!

    the extreme parts are really dense!!
    really progressive, love it when you scream your lungs out in the grim and clean vocals!

    sooo will ESP mirage be the title song of the next J.Bond movie or what!?


    and one other thing, You should have said: like a mental Leif Eriksson, not Kolumbus

    I think Asgeir already made that clear 100000000 times in
    Scream Magazine as the self-proclaimed best drummer in
    the world :D ;)

    edit: And Steve... what more is there to say? :worship:

    Now. I read the lyrics for the new album in bed last night...
    (yes, my perverted pleasures).. and I noticed the typical
    rhyming style...

    Paragraphs by 4 lines (or more) and every 2nd line with an
    ending rhyme. I'm not saying it is bad, I'm not saying it is
    everywhere, but in several of the songs. I usually don't analyze
    lyrics, but those albums I have done so with I have actually found
    to grow even more because of the total impression of the album.

    Just some thoughts there. And I really really like the aggressive
    parts on this album! This was a surprise in a way.. grrrrr :mad:
