    In April / 2012, Andreas Hedlund said on the Vintersorg official Facebook page about a possibility of a new Otyg album in 2013. He confirmed in a interview that Otyg is back and a new album is being recorded. Although one couldn't help but wonder if it would sound anything like the good ol' Otyg at all... i think Andreas' current higher-pitched voice doesn't suit Otyg at all...

    Is it true about Otyg being active again or is it just trolling? This is my all time favorite folk-metal band. No one else captured the magic of Norse paganism in it's raw, wild and nostalgic way though metal music as this guys.

    Jag hoppas att efter så lång tid, beslutar Andreas att återuppta sitt arbete som Otyg.

    Since Otyg are listed among the top similar artists of folk metal pioneers Skyclad, maybe someone's interested in this news: Skyclad's frontman Kevin Ridley releases his debut solo album 'Flying In The Face Of Logic' on 4th July 2011. A 'snippet mix' and three more clips from Kevin Ridley's album are available at Kevin's official website.
