For the first time ever…and the last, they will perform their groundbreaking debut album «Vikingligr Veldi» in its entirety, including guest musicians and artists!
Featuring also Mayhem performing «De Mysteris Dom Sathanas», Mgla, Dark Sonority, Cult of Fire, Vemod and Negative Plane, Beyond the Gates: BJØRGVIN BLACK MASS will take place at USF Verftet Bergen, 24th – 26th of August 2017.
Founding member and guitarist Ivar Bjørnson says about their “Vikingligr Veldi » live performance:
“Nostalgia is a sword with at least two edges; cynics use it to hide writer’s blocks and poor numbers (like; how many reunions can you do, really?) – but used soberly and selectively it becomes a source of pride, inspiration and fond memories: a strong, creative nostalgia that utilise the past and history for forward-thinking. This what we want to do with our special performance of the entire “Vikingligr Veldi” album at Beyond the Gates 2017. It will be the first, and probably last, time.
It is a special album for us, and before this point in time there has never been an event suitable for even considering a full rendition. Now that it has finally been released on vinyl, Z. Bielak has an active hand in the release and also the festival – and Beyond the Gates moved into USF… the runes and stars all aligned and told us: this has to be done. And done it shall be!”
