Borknagar: Winter Thrice

Album Review

Bergen’s other progressive Vikings set sail once more

Simply by virtue of not being Enslaved, Borknagar are the Norwegian folky progressive black metal band that aren’t nearly as big as they are good, and their 10th album is a firm reminder of just how skilled they are as songwriters.

Memorable vocal lines make this an instantly accessible listen, the recognisable clean singing of Vintersorg interspersed with aggressive shrieks and ICS Vortex’s inimitable, ethereal tenor, creating real dynamics from start to finish.
