Borknagar is a progressive metal band from Bergen, Norway founded in 1995 by Øystein Garnes Brun. The band's style combines folk metal and black metal with progressive and melodic elements. Borknagar's lyrics often deal with philosophy, paganism, nature, and the cosmos.
Borknagar is the debut studio album by the Norwegian band of the same name. It is their only album to feature lyrics in the Norwegian language, as well as their only pure black/viking metal album, as they would progress on to a somewhat more melodic/symphonic black metal sound on their later albums.
