Hungarian black / pagan metal act, Bornholm, have dropped an explosive new single and video for the track, “Spiritual Warfare,” from their forthcoming record, Apotheosis, due to be released November 5 via Napalm Records.  Featuring tight elements of black, pagan, and folk metal elements, “Spiritual Warfare” is Bornholm’s second single following the success of “I Am War God.” Apotheosis will be the band’s sixth studio album in their 20+ year career. Unholy.  Blasphemous. Pure metal.

Guitarist, vocalist Sahsnot on “Spiritual Warfare:”

“This song is a special song for me, in addition to hitherto unusual musical solutions, it also displays a lyrical apocalyptic vision. It contains biblical references, abstract visions, ritual magic. Behind the scenes of the physical world, warfare always takes place primarily among spiritual forces, which is the real driving force behind. This causes changes in the visible world. Which side is which is not so clear-cut, whether there are any sides at all or just one will. While it’s not a fast track, it still has the fastest part on the album. The cover painting is my work, just like all the visuals related to the album, it was brought to life greatly.”
