Borknagar Joins Devastation On The Nation North America Tour 2022

BAND TO RELEASE DELUXE ANNIVERSARY RE-ISSUE OF DEBUT ALBUM BORKNAGAR ON NOVEMBER 12TH

(Bergen, Norway – October 5, 2021) – Norway’s avant-garde black metal innovators BORKNAGAR have announced that they will be joining the Devastation On The Nation North America Tour 2022. The band will be direct support to Rotting Christ and will be joined by Wolfheart, Abigail Williams starting April 21st in Berkeley, CA and wrapping on May 22nd in Los Angeles. Tickets are available to purchase, HERE

BORKNAGAR recently announced their 25th anniversary re-issue of their pioneering self-titled debut album Borknagar. The album will be released for the first time ever worldwide via the band’s longtime label partner Century Media Records on November 12th. The limited Digipak 2CD (with 12 bonus tracks / 60 min.) and the limited Gatefold 2LP on 180g black vinyl (with 8 bonus tracks / 37 min.) are available for pre-order, HERE.

Initially released in 1996, Borknagar saw Øystein G. Brun recruiting a phenomenal cast of like-minded musicians, such as Garm (Ulver, ex Arcturus) doing the vocals, drummer Grim (ex-Immortal, Gorgoroth), Ivar Bjørnson(Enslaved) on keyboards and bassist Infernus (Gorgoroth), to enter the notorious halls of Grieghallen Studios with the goal of rupturing the peripheries of what was then deemed “traditional” Black Metal.

The upcoming deluxe edition of the album now entitled Borknagar (25th Anniversary Re-issue 2021) marks the definitive version of this pioneering Norwegian Metal classic, and includes a careful remaster of the 10 track LP courtesy of Øystein G. Brun, a makeover for the original artwork, profound liner notes, exclusive photos and a bonus disc full of previously unheard material from the band vaults.
