Borknagar premiere animated music video for “Moon”

Author Flavia Andrade - 7.2.2024

Norwegian progressive black metallers Borknagar have released their new single “Moon” alongside a music video. The song, with an animated video made by Costin Chioreanu, is the third single from their upcoming album “Fall”, out on February 23rd via Century Media.

Guitarist Øystein G. Brun said:

Hi all! We are extremely proud to present you with the third single ‘Moon‘ from our upcoming album ‘Fall’. ‘Moon‘ is written by ICS Vortex and adds yet another step to our always evolving musical adventure. As with ‘Up North,’ we are thrilled to be able to work with our friend Costin Chioreanu/Twilight 13 Media once again for a profound and sophisticated visual completion of the song. We sincerely hope you enjoy the song/video as much as we do! We truly love it!

Chioreanu shared:

When I am working with a band with a respectful fanbase who have very high expectations, the pressure over the shoulders is of course more intense than any other daily project. But when it also is the second collaboration with a band like that — a few years ago I already illustrated the song ‘Up North‘ for Borknagar — the pressure gets at least double.

I am extremely grateful to these amazing musicians and also Century Media for trusting my skills unconditionally, as this is the drug which keeps me high on bringing into this dimension such unique manifestations of visual art as the animation video I created for ‘Moon.’

Feeling also very connected with the theme of the song, being at a time in my life completely drowned in the surreal nectar of this type of poem, I could dress it honorably into the right images. I think this video is pushing by all means the limits of heavy metal aesthetics into a new and fresh fruitful zone.
