Borknagar have posted their first studio report from Fascination Street Studios where they are currently busy recording album #10. The forthcoming opus, as yet untitled, is scheduled for a Feb 2012 release via Century Media Records.
In the first report, guitarist, Oystein Brun, reveals; “We are simply stunned by the sophisticated wizardry that Jens Bogren [producer; Katatonia, Amon Amarth, Opeth] is able to squeeze out from his monitors. What we hear is simply above and beyond all our expectations. 6 songs done and we have 4 more to do tomorrow- and I can assure you that the new album will knock you out of the chair.”
In a previous statement, Brun commented; “Looking back on our previous releases, our major challenge has always been to materialize our highly detailed music and compromises have been done production-wise. This time around there will be no compromise and hopefully you will witness the most powerful, rich, detailed and dynamic Borknagar album to date!”
