Askebloss parted ways with MYRKVEDR

Hard time for MYRKVEDR band who has seen the departure of their folk player "Runar" you can find in FROSTRIT band. Their bass player "Askebloss" has done the same, for another and darker reason...

MYRKVEDR said: Dear fans.
It is with a heavy heart that we tell you that Askebloss has decided to leave us. He no longer feels that he has the drive or time to continue playing bass at all. We in the band are of course very sad because of this since Askebloss has been with the band since the beginning, and we all consider him a family member.
As you might have noticed, Myrkvedr hasn't been particularly active doing gigs or completeing the EP, which is delayed beyond measurement. And the reason for this is of course financial difficulties but also internal struggles, which is to be expected when you basically are a group of people trying to steer a car at the same time. This isn't usually a problem for us, but these last months working on making our EP as good as p…

NORRSKÖLD interview on Sword Chant

I inerviewed Henrik Bodin-Sköld, the founder, songwriter and guitarist of NORRSKÖLD
regarding the past, present, and future of the band. 
01. Hi! Back in 2012, you founded NORRSKÖLD after leaving IRRBLOSS. Was everything alright with Irrbloss or have you got different visions for Irrbloss band in that time ? Greetings! Well, Irrbloss was a very good start for me, in the metal scene of Göteborg, where I got to meet a lot of people in the network and also got to learn more about myself with time as a band member. For a number of reasons, we had a hard time recording new material in the band, and I realized that I could not get all my creativity out at that time. Therefore I decided to quit and kickstart my own studio project, that eventually came to be the band Norrsköld.
