BORKNAGAR Signs New Deal With CENTURY MEDIA RECORDS

Norway's BORKNAGAR has inked a three-album deal with Century Media Records. The band is currently working on material for its new CD, tentatively due in early 2012.

Commented BORKNAGAR mainman Øystein G. Brun: "Well, sometimes life takes slightly unexpected yet great turns!

"Due to internal business affairs, the deal with Indie recordings was mutually terminated by both parties in January 2011. Since then we have been negotiating a possible re-signing with Century Media Records.

"While you are reading this, Jens F. Ryland and I are at the headquarters of Century Media Records in Dortmund to ink a new deal with our old partners in crime.

"It feels very good to be back in the fold of the mighty Century family; there is simply no team, no label alike.

"Thanks to Jens Preuter (head of A&R), we have worked out and landed a deal that we are 110 percent sure will serve the future endeavors of BORKNAGAR in the best possible and most potent way. We share so much history with Century Media Records and we are now preparing to create more musical history for the future to come — together with our friends at the Century family!“

Added Preuter: "We are very proud to welcome back such a great and highly influential band. Whether you want to call it black, progressive, Viking, folk or whatever metal, BORKNAGAR always managed to be just themselves on a unique and high level.

"I already heard some pre-production demos from the upcoming album and I can tell you it will be not just another masterpiece, but probably the best material they’ve done so far."

If you live near Dortmund, Germany, you can come by the Die Burg bar this Thursday evening, March 29 and party with Øystein G. Brun, Jens F. Ryland and the Century Media crew.
