Germany’s Metal Hammer Magazine and Norway’s Scream Magazine have voted “Urd”, the newest album of metallers BORKNAGAR, to become the ”album of the month” of their current issues! “Congratulations to the band for this great achievement…” Century Media Records posted.
BORKNAGAR’s mastermind Oystein G. Brun has checked in to comment about the amazing advance reactions as well as the band status as follows:
“Hey folks! Just wanted to give you all a brief status report from the BORK headquarter…
First off I would like to express our gratitude for all the amazing feedback we have got for the upcoming album. As earlier stated we’re all very satisfied and proud of the new album, but the fact that this album would unleash such a massive and positive feedback came a bit as a surprise for all of us. “Urd” recently won the “album of the month” in Metal Hammer Germany, something we really didn’t really expect being the “unconventional” band we are. Also we won the “album of the month” in Scream Magazine in Norway and it feels good to get that kind of recognition in our own territory. We have done numerous interviews the past weeks and what a joyful ride it is, the feedbacks are generally amazing and we can’t do anything but smile.
As you can see the album comes in different version; standard jewelcase CD, limited digipak with two extra tracks and a vinyl version in black, green and gold. Reportedly some of these limited items are soon out of stock, so if interested to have an exclusive edition of the album, make sure to place you order ASAP.
On another note we are currently working on a project that we will reveal soon, we are really excited about it and hopefully it will grant an additional and worthy dimension to our expression….
Due to the massive and positive feedback I would like to offer something back to all our fans: Fans can submit questions to the following mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org – The 20 first questions will be answered and launched on our sites. Please headline the mail with “Fan Question”. So if there is anything you are wondering about in relations to BORKNAGAR that journalists and magazines haven’t been digging into – feel free to submit your question!” Take care, folks! Øystein / BORKNAGAR”
As previously posted, BORKNAGAR are going to release their newest album “Urd” on March 2012 via Century Media Records.

The mixing duties for the album were taken care of by Jens Bogren at Sweden’s Fascination Street Studios (Opeth, Paradise Lost, Katatonia, etc.).
