The wait for the new Borgir release is still on with the release of their new single Gateways. The departure of Mustis and Vortex does not seem to have impacted the spirit of making dark metal by the band and that is evident on Gateways. Well structured and composed in an epic fashion, the song is a welcome break from their sound on In Sorte Diaboli. Thanks to a certain orchestra that assists the band in sounding eerie. The lost black melody is loosely found and the choirs along with Shagrath‘s vocals only make it better. With the album release date approaching I can only hope the days get shorter as we get closer. And with Abrahadabra releasing in India too the whole thing could not have gotten sweeter.
