Thokkian Vortex is the black metal solo project from the Lord Kaiaphas, the former singer for the Norwegian black metal band, Ancient (95-98). The music is influenced by the bands from the first wave of Nordic black metal (1990-1996), such as Darkthrone, Emperor, Immortal, Limbonic Art, Dark Funeral, etc. There are also elements of symphonic classical and dark ambient music. Although the Lord Kaiaphas currently intends to continue with this project, he does not wish to perform live gigs. Thokkian Vortex is not a full time band.
The definition of Thokkian vortex is a crack or wormhole through which one's astral body is sucked into a parallel dimension of unknown darkness.
