Borknagar - 'Nordic Anthem' (official music video)

There comes a time when all gods must fall
A time to answer our nation’s call
No chains can bind us, shackles can’t hold
The Northern spirit cannot be sold

This is our home
Our life is free
From coast to mountain
We will never bend our knee
We bow our heads to nothing but our past
Our breath is cold,
We know our history will last.

Northerners won't bow to any god!

The north wind whispers in our ears
Old tales of hardship, of hopes and fears
We fought to forge our own destiny
Now we stand strong for the world to see

This is our home
Our life is free
From coast to mountain
We will never bend our knee
We bow our heads to nothing but our past
Our breath is cold,
We know our history will last.

This is the north where spirits run free
From coast to mountain, that is our key
So, raise your head as our anthem rings
This is the north, so our people sings:
“We won’t bend our necks to any god!”

Borknagar - 'Fall'
Μία... ντουζίνα full length albums θα συμπληρώσουν σε λίγες ημέρες οι Borknagar, οι οποίοι επιστρέφουν δισκογραφικά μετά από μία πενταετία (βλ. τον δίσκο "True North" που κυκλοφόρησε τον Σεπτέμβριο του 2019). "Fall" ο τίτλος του νέου τους πονήματος.

Οι Borknagar δημιουργήθηκαν πριν από τριάντα έτη. Κατατάσσονται στο ευρύτερο φάσμα του avant-garde (black) metal και μας συστήνονται κάπως έτσι: «Borknagar is a Norwegian progressive metal group whose sound combines black metal and folk metal, with lyrics centered around themes such as philosophy, nature, mythology, paganism and the cosmos.»

Παρακολουθούμε το μουσικό βίντεο του τραγουδιού "Nordic Anthem", για το οποίο η Νορβηγική μπάντα μας λέει: «So many gods. So many beliefs. So much conflict. “Nordic Anthem” is about rejecting any kind of doctrine, religious or political. It’s about going to your own nature, your inner core, and finding strength and freedom. Our perspective is a northern one -we’re from the north after all- but this is a firm stance that is universally applicable. It’s about finding and trusting your own values, your own heritage, and standing up against gods and authorities trying to push doctrine to control you, or corrupt you. This is our collective anthem. We won’t bend our knee to any god!»

Δελτίο τύπου: «Norway’s pioneers of avantgarde/progressive Black Metal Borknagar return with their monumental 12th studio album entitled “Fall”, which includes 8 majestic tracks across 54 epic minutes of playing time, once again brilliantly mixed by Jens Bogren / Fascination Street Studios (Opeth, Amon Amarth, Kreator).

“Fall” is the follow-up to the widely acclaimed “True North” studio album from 2019, comes with stunning album cover artwork by Eliran Kantor (Testament, My Dying Bride, Sodom) and is available as limited first-pressing Digipak CD, as Gatefold 2-LP on 180gr vinyl and as Digital Album. “Fall” into Borknagar, share the grand struggle against the wild in all of us...»
