In these days with all the streaming debates, sharing, ripping, piracy and such I almost feel like a pirate myself asking people to buy the album to keep us going. I can live long on good reviews and feedback, but in the end that doesn’t pay studio bills, marketing, layout, production and all that. So, for you trusty ones who still buy albums I want to direct you to the places where you also directly support Borknagar with your purchase.
It’s very easy really, I simply want you to go through the featured shop on the Borknagar website. This is the current one; Borknagar webshop
Yes, I know it’s not up to date with the pre order stuff, but you can find that at the Century Media webshop and we’ll get it up at the Borknagar shop too.
It’s still a few weeks before the album is out and all the products are not done and made just yet. I’ll make sure to update you when more stuff is ready to display. Until then, enjoy the first song here at this link; Borknagar – Roots – Urd
Sometimes we can’t live up to all our plans and promises, that’s just the way it is. This weekend, Øystein and ICS Vortex has been in studio recording bass, and I was supposed to be there parts of the time. But I have not been feeling well and chose to stay home, and with that all my plans to show pictures and maybe make some video is out the window. To add to the problems Øystein hasn’t been able to update the Borknagar Twitter account like he wanted to. At least he sent me a couple of pictures:
I guess Øystein will make another update with more pictures on the Borknagar website
The past week started with Halloween and a nice present from Century Media, a free compilation for downloading, among these; “A Free ICS Vortex song”
Then Asgeir made a his own compilation, this time of Youtube- videos showing “Star Wars in TV- commercials“, and to make the variation nice and spread he also had series of photos from when he was “Hunting Pigeons” with his brother.
The most popular post this week was not doubt the announcement of another “Arcturus gig“, they are always popular. And when Asgeir saw that “Commodore 64 has made a new model” he simply had to make a retro post about it he he.
And that’s about it.
