Artisan is blog and music project run by Jens F. Ryland.
This is my outlet, where I test ideas. Stuff that I can’t do in the Borknagar channels. It changes, has changed several times already. It will keep changing.
The first project for Artisan was the “fan-video” for the PC-game “Age Of Conan“. Jens was inspired by the game to make music and the idea settled about making music to the game itself. This lead to the creation of this band with the lineup:
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
Artisan is at this point unsigned and has no live plans, but many plans for future projects.
This is the first video:
