NoiseArt Records and the concert artist agency Rock The Nation have announced the signing of Swedish viking/black metallers THYRFING to a worldwide deal. The band’s first CD since 2008’s critically acclaimed “Hels Vite” will be recorded and mixed during late summer and early fall for a spring 2013 release.
Commented the band: “We are really looking forward to this new co-operation and truly believe that NoiseArt Records and Rock The Nation are the right channel for bringing ourmusic to the public and fans in the future.”
After 17 years in the band, original member and bassist Kimmy Sjölund recently decided to leave THYRFING. Joakim Kristensson has since taken over the bass duties. The band also welcomed a new drummer, Dennis Ekdahl.
THYRFING 2012 is:
Jens Rydén – Vocals
Patrik Lindgren – Guitar
Fredrik Hernborg – Guitar
Joakim Kristensson – Bass
Peter Löf – Synthesizers
Dennis Ekdahl – Drums
“Hels Vite” was released in October 2008 via Regain Records. The CD was co-produced (with the band) by Jörgen Svensson of Tyroon Production and the cover artwork was created by the Swedish artist Mikael Schelén. The layout and the photos were handled by Jens Rydén.
THYRFING in 2007 announced the addition of Jens Rydén as the band’s new vocalist. Jens is best known as founding member and ex-vocalist of NAGLFAR and for his one-man army PROFUNDI.
