Borknagar

Postby Tet » Thu Aug 18, 2016 8:03 pm

A band that defy description somewhat, but "avant garde black metal" seems to be a label that people hang on them. After waiting for many, many years, I finally got to see them a couple of weeks ago at Wacken and they were fantastic. I'd love to see them at Bloodstock.

Bumping this one. Band hasn't played in the UK for at least 10 years I don't think.

1998 supporting Cradle Of Filth, I was there, Borknagar were forgettable.

Have their first 3 albums, first 2 are ok, third isn't great, never found them that interesting tbh.

Would be happy to see them get booked. Not seen them since 2002 and the new album is brilliant.

Ha ha. Well, we certainly differ there. For my tastes, the third album is one of the finest metal albums ever released! In fact, the 3rd, 4th and 5th albums are all pretty much flawless.
