Borknagar is a band from Bergen, Norway founded in 1995 by Øystein Garnes Brun. The band began as a black metal/viking metal band and quickly adopted a more progressive metal style after their first album.
As such, the band's most known style would be that of progressive black metal, with most of their albums taking from this style. Borknagar's lyrics often deal with philosophy, paganism, nature, and the cosmos. Øystein Brun stated once that the name was inspired by a Scottish legend about a man who climbed Lochnagar Read more on Last.fm

RELATED: Do yourself a huge favor and check out the new Sojourner album 'The Shadowed Road', just recently released by Avantgarde Music!
This album was mixed by me(Øystein G. Brun) at my very own Crosound Studio, and mastered by the one and only Dan@Unisound AB. This album will for sure be one of my absolute favorite releases this year, maybe even for years to come! Damn good album!
And hey, for anyone up for a sneak peek behind the curtains of the new Borknagar album, just curious about various musical projects or even at the lookout for mixing/mastering services, feel free to head over to my studio page: Crosound Studio. Cheers! 🙂
