BORKNAGAR Launch new single/video “Moon”; New album “Fall” out soon!

Norway’s pioneers of avantgarde/progressive Black Metal BORKNAGAR are releasing their upcoming monumental 12th studio album “Fall” worldwide later this month, on February 23rd, 2024 via longtime record label partners Century Media Records.

Today, a third single off the upcoming “Fall” album is being released. Check out “Moon” in a stunning animated clip created by visual artist Costin Chioreanu / Twilight13Media here:

Øystein G. Brun commented on behalf of BORKNAGAR as follows about “Moon”: "Hi all! We are extremely proud to present you with the third single "Moon" from our upcoming album "Fall". "Moon" is written by ICS Vortex and adds yet another step to our always evolving musical adventure. As with "Up North", we are thrilled to be able to work with our friend Costin Chioreanu / Twilight 13 Media once again for a profound and sophisticated visual completion of the song. We sincerely hope you enjoy the song/video as much as we do! We truly love it!"

Videographer Costin Chioreanu – who also created the single’s artwork to be seen above – added the following about his work on the “Moon” video: "When I am working with a band with a respectful fanbase who have very high expectations, the pressure over the shoulders is of course more intense than any other daily project. But when it also is the second collaboration with a band like that - a few years ago I already illustrated the song “Up North” for BORKNAGAR - the pressure gets at least double. I am extremely grateful to these amazing musicians and also Century Media for trusting my skills unconditionally, as this is the drug which keeps me high on bringing into this dimension such unique manifestations of visual art as the animation video I created for "Moon". Feeling also very connected with the theme of the song, being at a time in my life completely drowned in the surreal nectar of this type of poem, I could dress it honorably into the right images. I think this video is pushing by all means the limits of heavy metal aesthetics into a new and fresh fruitful zone."

Previously, the album’s opening track “Summits” was made available in a visualizer clip created by Wanderley Perna / W Designer here: and furthermore the song “Nordic Anthem” was launched in a video created by Marius Martinsen, Kenneth Williams and Lars A. Nedland via the production company High & Low here:

“Fall” includes 8 majestic tracks across 54 epic minutes of playing time, once again brilliantly mixed by Jens Bogren / Fascination Street Studios (Opeth, Amon Amarth, Kreator), and featuring stunning album cover artwork by Eliran Kantor (Testament, My Dying Bride, Sodom), which can be below.
