Borknagar debut new single

Official press release: Norway's avant-garde Black Metal pioneers and innovators Borknagar have just released their second single and music video "Up North" via Century Media Records. Watch the video, created by Costin Chioreanu / Twilight13Media. The track is off the band's 11th studio album, True North, out on September 27th, 2019. "'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," states Borknagar's Øystein G. Brun about the video. "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!"
