Borknagar is a black metal band from Bergen, Norway founded in 1995 by Øystein Garnes Brun. The band's style combines folk metal and blackmetal with progressive and melodic elements. Borknagar's lyrics often deal with philosophy, paganism, nature, and the cosmos. The nameBorknagar is an anagram of "Ragnarök", with a B thrown in to make it pronounceable (however, Øystein Brun stated once that the name wasinspired by a Scottish legend about a man who climbed Lochnagar, a mountain in Scotland).
