IF“This is number 10….. Album number 10!!!!! That we even made it this far, that is amazing. Then, to deliver the album of our career that is something else….. It’s fast, slow, heavy and mellow. It’s happy, sad, angry and calm. Sounds of a playground Fading is everything we ever done on crack (it’s a metaphor boys and girls), it’s cask strength whisky when it’s THAT perfect moment. Use and abuse!!!!! By the way, we are happy to be in bed with Century Media. They know the business we know the music, a perfect match. What can possibly go wrong….ha, ha, ha!!!!!!” – Anders Fridén/In Flames

In Flames is in 1990 opgericht in Gothenburg en werd snel een van de meest succesvolle Zweedse metal bands. Met al hun albums scoren ze over de hele wereld in de hoogste regionen van de verkooplijsten. Hun nieuwe album Sounds Of A Playground Fading staat gepland voor juni 2011. Deze zomer kun je de band zien optreden op de meest belangrijke festivals, zoals onder andere Sonisphere, Rock Am Ring/Rock Im Park en Hellfest. In juli start de band de Rockstar Mayhem US Tour en gaat de band in Amerika op tournee om in de herfst en winter optredens in Europa te doen.

BorknagarØystein G. Brun vertelt: “Well, sometimes life takes slightly unexpected yet great turns! 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. While you are reading this, Jens F. Ryland and I are at the headquarters of CMR 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. Thanks to Jens Preuter (head A&R) we have worked out and landed a deal that we are 110% sure will serve the future endeavors of BORKNAGAR in the best possible and most potent way. We share so much history with CMR and we are now preparing to create more musical history for the future to come- together with our friends at the Century family!”

Borknagar, opgericht in 1995 in Bergen, Noorwegen, werkt momenteel aan nummers voor hun nieuwe album, waarvan de release voor begin 2012 gepland staat. De band speelt black metal met uitstapjes naar progressive, viking, folk en pagan metal. Borknagar hebben voor drie platen getekend bij Century Media. De nieuw te verschijnen plaat zal hun negende worden.
