FORTID BEGINS WORK ON FIFTH FULL-LENGTH ALBUM

Posted: May 5, 2013 in FORTID, OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASES

Extreme Pagan Metallers FORTID have begun work on what will be the band’s fifth full-length album.  Recording is set to take place in the early summer, and, whilst not wanting to give too much away, the band have revealed that all the lyrics for the album will be in Icelandic and that they already have a lot of material, more so than for previous albums.  The as yet untitled album will be the follow up to 2012’s much lauded “Pagan Prophecies”.

Formed in Iceland in 2002 by Einar Thorberg as a solo project, FORTID’s reputation was firmly established following the release of three full-length albums. Collectively known as the Völuspá Trilogy, the three albums, “Thor’s Anger”, “The Arrival of Fenris” and “Fall of the Ages”, were released between 2002 and 2010. Between the release of the second and third parts of the Trilogy, Thorberg moved to Norway where he recruited a permanent line up and FORTID became a fully functioning studio and live band.   Aside from Thorberg on guitars and vocals FORTID’s current lineup includes Øystein Hansen (ex THORNBOUND) on guitars, Rikard Jonsson (FORSEFED HORSEHEAD, ex DEJECT) on bass and Daniel Theobald (CURSE, DEN SAAKALDTE, ETHERIAL FOREST, SARKOM) on drums.

FORTID is set to play the remaining three dates of the NORTHERN CHAOS TOUR in May along with Sweden’s GRÁ and Finland’s ANTAGONIST ZERO.  Dates as follows:

Thu 09 May, PRKL Club, Helsinki, Finland
FRI 10 May, Taidetehdas, Porvoo, Finland
Sat 11 May, Club Tapper, Tallinn, Estonia
