Borknagar - "Up North" (video)

Ο δέκατος "ολοκληρωμένος" δίσκος των Borknagar είναι προ των πυλών. Φέρει τον τίτλο "True North" κι αναμένεται να κυκλοφορήσει στα τέλη του τρέχοντος μήνα...

Δελτίο τύπου: «Intrepid black metallers Borknagar, in partnership with Century Media, mark their return with resplendent new album, True North. The Norwegians spent the better part of three years writing and rebuilding the lineup-Borknagar are now Øystein G. Brun (guitars), Simen “I.C.S. Vortex” Hestnæs (bass/vocals), Lars A. Nedland (keyboards/vocals), Bjørn Dugstad Rønnow (drums), and Jostein Thomassen (guitars)-to make their 11th studio album a reality.

The reasons are plenty but the main driver for space between and change within Borknagar’s repertoire and membership was calibration. Chief songman Brun needed to refocus his labor of love after the assiduous Winter Thrice album cycle. Indeed, that’s exactly what he’s done on True North.

While Winter Thrice was a celebration of time spent and bonds made, True North is the vanguard forward, clear-sighted, refined, and full of power. Truly, there’s no holding back now, but with year 25-the band’s silver anniversary-approaching next year, small wonder that Brun and Borknagar are still with us. Fortuitous, or part of the plan all along...»

Øystein G. Brun: «This has indeed been a thunderous ride, and we are truly excited to finally start revealing some news about our upcoming album. We have spent almost 2 years writing, recording and producing ”True North” and we are extremely proud of what we have achieved this time around.

On behalf of the whole band, I can firmly say that we have pushed the limits of our musical exploration, while our musical roots have grown even deeper into the northern ground. This is the most diverse, powerful and grandiose Borknagar album to date! Let there be no doubt! Yet again we have been working with Thor Erik Dullum and Marcelo Vasco for cover and layout design.

From the very beginning of the process, we wanted this album to have a very clear, crisp and organic cover that spearheads the cold and northern essence of the album. So what could be more natural than basing it on our very own Nordic surroundings? Furthermore, we are also very happy to reveal that we have extended our deal with Century Media Records. Onwards!»

  1. Δεν είμαι και πολύ εξοικειωμένος με τη μουσική των Borknagar αλλά το τραγούδι με εξέπληξε ως προς το στυλ. Πάντως μου άρεσε.
