Borknagar Premiere New Song & Music Video “Up North”

Borknagar‘s new track “Up North” premiered online today, accompanied with a music video produced by Costin Chioreanu (At The Gates, Voivod). The single is taken from thegroup’s eleventh studio release “True North” which will land in stores on September 27th.


The band’s guitarist Øystein G. Brun had the following to say of that:

“‘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!”

Has a Dimmu Borgir-Stormblast (Alt Lys Er Svunnet Hen) vibe right away. ICS Vortex has an amazing range, but at times tries to do too much with his vocals. Great song though; looking forward to the new album.
