BORKNAGAR unveil upcoming album details

BORKNAGAR - Winter Thrice

Norwegian epic progressive black metal pioneers Borknagar are getting prepared to release their newest, 10th studio album “Winter Thrice” on January 22nd, 2016 via Century Media Records worldwide. The album’s limited edition digipak CD version and the gatefold 2-LP also come with the bonus track “Dominant Winds” and additionally, the digipak will include a Borknagar logo-patch. “Winter Thrice“, which – just like the previous album “Urd” from 2012 – was once again mixed by Jens Bogren / Fascination Street Studios (Opeth, Kreator, Amon Amarth, etc.) and packaged in artwork by Marcelo Vasco / P2RDesign (Slayer, Machine Head, Soulfly, etc.), is unique to the Borknagar catalogue also because it features four vocalist parts, including the return of original singer and Ulver-mastermind Kristoffer Rygg, a.k.a. Garm, who guests on two songs. “Winter Thrice” encompasses everything that Borknagar has put to tape over the past two decades, from their most brutal assaults to their most experimental compositions, with a larger progressive vibe than ever before, making it an absolute highlight in the band’s already stellar career so far…

Borknagar have already been confirmed to appear at next year’s edition of Germany’s Wacken Open Air festival, taking place on August 4th-6th, 2016. And more tourdates to promote the release of “Winter Thrice” will be announced in the coming weeks.
