NEWS: Borknagar share anthems of the north!

As new album “Fall” is set to rear it’s ugly head on 23rd February via Century Media, Borknagar have taken the opportunity to premier “Nordic Anthem” a month after “Summits” premiered. The twelfth studio album from the Norwegian pioneers of Avant-garde Progressive Black Metal it was mixed by Jens Bogren at Fascination Street Studios (Opeth, Amon Amarth, Kreator) and is conjoined to stunning album cover artwork by Eliran Kantor (Testament, My Dying Bride, Sodom).

The band comment: “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!”
