Jotunspor brings together two guys with ties to Gorgoroth, in the forms of King and Kvitrafn (the two also play together in Sahg). Gleipnirs Smeder does bear some resemblance to Gorgoroth, as indeed this is frosty black metal after all, but there's a noticeable industrial tinge and distant vocal style that at times brings a band such as Blut Aus Nord to mind. This is probably no more than a part-time (or even one-time) project, especially given how busy King is (the man is in no less than five major bands as of this writing, four of which recorded in 2006).
