Norwegian progressive black metallers Borknagar are back on Century Media, having signed a three-album deal with the label. Borknagaer are currently working on material for its next CD, which is tentatively due sometime in early 2012. Killer!
The band had been signed to the label between 1996 and 2008. I didn’t know labels still offered three-album deals to bands that weren’t Linkin Park.
“Well, sometimes life takes slightly unexpected yet great turns,” says Borknagar mainman Øystein G. Brun in a statement. “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.”
The statement continues. “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.”
So, that happened. I am looking forward to the next effort from these dudes. It’s going to be epic. And Norwegian.
