ICS Vortex: Touring Norway!
Norway's ICS Vortex, who released their extremely versatile and highly acclaimed debut album "Storm Seeker" last year via Century Media Records, will be touring in their native Norway together with Susperia and Rendezvous Point throughout November 2012 - January 2103.
Former Dimmu Borgir and current Borknagar/Arcturus member ICS Vortex has checked in to comment as follows about the tour: "Susperia and ICS Vortex are taking Rendezvous Point out for a melodic metal ride covering four winter weekends around Norway. Experience dark freezing Norway through a warm night of illuminating metal!".
