Borknagar – Øystein G. Brun
Written by Andreas Aubert
The Norwegian band Borknagar can easily be labelled Avantgarde. Whether speaking of the music, the lyrics or the artwork, it can be said that it is not exactly the usual cup of tea. Through it all shines a philosophical approach to life, an existential wonder. I caught up with guitarist and main songwriter/lyricist Øystein G. Brun via email, to discuss philosophy, spirituality, lyrics and the creative process. He was more than willing to explain his approach to life as a travel, and to share about its many facets.
