Staff review by
After their successful homonymous debut album, Borknagar release in 1997 "The Olden Domain", their second attempt. This album was a total success and was accepted by a wide audience in the metal scene and thus Öystein Garnes Brun, songwriter and former member of the, up to then, project named "Borknagar", decided to continue Borknagar as a band.

Different from the debut, but on par with it. The proggy playing style and the clean vocals remind me SOMEHOW of newer Enslaved.

Another excellent Borknagar album, though in comparison with its predecessor, the band's self-titled debut, I find it slightly weaker overall. The clean vocals sometimes distract me in a bad way from the instrumentation, but it's nothing serious, especially when the musicianship here is top notch. 'The eye of Oden' and 'A tale of pagan tongue' are my personal favourite from this album.

The clean vocals are totally redundant and unmatched ! It's so damn serious...a massive mistake !

I don't call this a pure Black Metal album, they created a new genre - Pop Dark Metal ! Keyboards sound unskillful, I think my 12 years old niece can do better than this.
