Borknagar - Epic LP (Black vinyl)


Epic is one of the great Viking metal masterpieces of today. Compared to similar bands such as Enslaved and Arcturus, Borknagar has always risen above and beyond. The composition of nearly all their albums is always flawless, and Epic is no different.

Vintersorg’s vocals are a key element to the music, and the versatility of vocal techniques is well used, and never overdone. The clean vocals are placed very well, especially on tracks such as “Future Reminiscence” and “Traveller”. The lyrical intelligence and incorporation of varying patters is nothing new for Borknagar, but is just one more thing on a large list of enjoyable aspects of Epic.
