Artisan is a Norwegian band project and media experiment lead by your’s truly: Jens F. Ryland. As a band we will continue to make music without being tied to a genre or put in a shelf. As a media project Asgeir Mickelson and myself will continue to make posts about our lives as musicians on this blog along with creating new possibilities to implement our music.
The lineup for this first song and video is:
ICS Vortex – bass and vocals (ex-Dimmu Borgir, ICS Vortex, Borknagar, Arcturus)
Mustis – keys (ex-Dimmu Borgir)
Asgeir Mickelson – drums and guitar (ex-Borknagar, ex-Testament, Spiral Architect. Sarke, ICS Vortex)
Jens F. Ryland – guitar and video production (Borknagar, ICS Vortex)
Vegasti – video editing and production
I play AoC actively and this is my tribute to a brilliant game. Playing AoC is in itself a good inspiration to create music, and that is why this whole band and this particular song has come to life.
Artisan is not signed to any label and at this time we have no live plans.
