BORKNAGAR True North DIGIPAK CD
Genre: Black Metal
Label: Century Media
It’s remarkable that while legendary bands like Iron Maiden and Dream Theater have both released their fair share of dud albums, Norway’s Borknagar are eleven albums and nearly a quarter century into their career with no throwaway efforts to speak of. Alongside Emperor, Borknagar has been responsible for taking the groundwork of Norwegian black metal and elevating it to rival the most forward-thinking progressive noodle-heads out there. The key difference between Borky and Emperor is this: Borky never quit making albums.
