Thorns: Making a podcast

This weekend Marius, me and Snorre met up with Mork main man Thomas Eriksen for making an episode of his podcast. That is, I met up with Marius and Thomas in Oslo and then we drove up to where Snorre lives and stayed at his place for the weekend. Drinking, smoking and sharing lots of music and memories.

It's always hard to say anything about how the episode turns out, but we had a good time, and I think we covered a lot of things that will be interesting to black metal fans in general and Thorns fans in particular.

And of course it was a great to meet up and see Snorre again. We live quite far from each other, so we don't get to see each other as often anymore. Would have been great to have Bård there too. Hopefully next time!

Update: Jan 8, 2022: Both episodes of the podcast is available now, the Roadtrip which we recorded in the car on the way, and the actual episode about/with Snorre.

It was great fun to do both of these, especially the "proper" episode where we went on a serious trip down memory lane and talked about the earliest days of our musical journey, and what eventually became Thorns.
