BORKNAGAR Release new single + music video!
Norwegian black/progressive metal band Borknagar released the second song “Up North” off their upcoming album True North. The single was accompanied by a visually captivating animated music video to take you on a wild ride along with the equally astounding music. “Up North” definitely showcases Borknagar‘s more diverse, progressive side following their heavier, more black metal sounding single “The Fire That Burns” which was released a month ago.
“Borknagar’s Øystein G. Brun commented about the track as follows: ‘’Up North’ being the brainchild of I.C.S. Vortex, we gave his longtime friend Costin Chioreanu the full artistic freedom to make a video for the song. The only requirement from the band’s side was that we wanted visual representation and empowerment of the lyrics. Over seasonal changes the lyrics deal with the circle of live, to constancy of energy in the universe and the fact that we are all stardust that momentary comes together to be you, me and everybody else on this vast and wonderous planet. We are truly impressed by Costin’s work! The way the visuals play around with the lyrical themes is a stroke of genius. This is art in the true sense of the word, where hard work, passion, heart and soul has made this a glorious piece of captivatinge eye-candy. We love it!'”
Their 11th studio album True North will release on September 27th via Century Media.
