Decapitated’s Waclaw “Vogg” Kieltyka commented:

“I still remember it like it was yesterday… 22 years ago, our first ever UK tour, straight after Winds of Creation was released. We’d been touring with Lock up and Corporation 187. That was the first time we played for fans in England, and they called us the “helicopter band” because we would windmill for the entire set. It was a really great time for us, and we received a warm welcome in every town.

That’s why I am grateful that Decapitated can come back to the UK/IRL, which are almost like our second homes when we talk about the metal scene. We can’t wait to smash some venues we haven’t played for years, like The Underworld in London, which is legendary, plus visiting completely new places like Bridgend, Milton Keynes and Hull, where we have never played before. Prepare for more songs from our old catalogue, Nihility and Winds of Creation. Prepare for death metal madness, and let’s celebrate it all together like we always did. See you soon friends!”

Øystein G. Brun commented:

“Throughout the years I have received countless requests for a re-release of this album…but because this album represents such a personal and treacherous part of my life, I wanted it to be done with dignity. And here we are: This is the definitive re-release of the debut album of Borknagar.

This release contains a genuine re-master of the debut album, based on the original mix tapes. This has been done with the uttermost care and love by yours sincerely to maintain the original sound and flavour of the album, and solely to improve the listening experience. Working on this re-release has been an emotional ride. While always maintaining a good feeling about the project it has been times of frustration and technical obstacles.

Hours has been spent finding and compiling old pictures, dealing with tapes and equipment that has not been played or used in over 25 years. But now it is done, and I hope you all enjoy and appreciate this release as much as I do.”
