Hearth of the Norse Rhymes set

Enslaved will play a special 'Hearth of the Norse Rhymes' set.

A millennium ago, the Vikings raided our shores, along the way pillaging monasteries and laying waste to coastal villages. Nowadays, the Scandinavian invasion is a musical one and black/viking metal heroes

Enslaved have been at the forefront of that movement for twenty years now. Whereas their early efforts were limited to lightning-fast black metal, they have long since metamorphosed into virtuosos of extreme metal. Progressive song structures, psychedelic elements, a vintage Hammond organ and Pink Floyd-inspired guitar work go hand in hand with aggressive sections that sting every bit as hard as their early work. These guys are no stranger to the carrot-and-stick approach, a characteristic that pays dividends on stage. 


Info

  • Day: Friday

  • Stage: Mainstage

*** VERFTET ONLINE MUSIC FESTIVAL *** We are part of the Verftet Online Music Festival and will stream live on Youtube from USF, Bergen Norway on April 1st, 20:00 CET! When the old Bergen ring-fox Mikal Telle asked us to join his and local venue USF's fantastic initiative that is this festival, we pretty much said "yes and thanks for asking!" before he could finish the sentence. Of course we are itching in our fingers to play now that the world of live music is on halt, but we also saw a chance to get our live music out there to all the fantastic fans out there - the studio recordings is of course a pillar in what Enslaved is, but without the other pillar of playing high-energy shows and creating musical magick together with our magnificent audience - things get out of balance. Now we will have a chance to restore that balance for a virtual time with all of you - and time is time no matter what matter it moves through, right? See you in the ether! You will find the stream on www.bt.no and www.youtube.com

*** UTGARD - THE JOURNEY BEGINS *** First of all, we’d like to sincerely thank you for the warm reception of our latest publications about our upcoming new album ‘Utgard’! We understand that our recent communication also raised some questions and calls for transparent explanations. Let us reassure you that all of us are fine and in good health! Due to the current situation, we took the decision together with our label Nuclear Blast to postpone the release of ‘Utgard’ to the fall. Therefore, as you can imagine, the whole schedule had to be adjusted quickly! We understand that seeing a video teaser followed by nothing has been confusing. As of today, we can announce that our first single and video will be released on May 22nd, and we can’t wait to share this new music with you all! We are sure you understand that this is for the best. In the meantime, we’d like to tell you a little more about the ‘Utgard’ cover artwork! This is the 9th consecutive album cover artwork done by Truls Espedal - and like the album itself it is definitely on the wavelength of the long-distance pulse from the Enslaved generator. It is a piece of art that mirrors a massive concept and a band that is also more lyrically and philosophically inspired than ever before. That Truls is a master of his art is established a long time ago, but he has truly outdone himself on this interpretation of our Utgard. Just looking at how the colors and techniques are used to create the depth and grandiosity of the horizon. The perfect travelling companion into these uncharted territories. We are looking forward to sharing more news with you very soon. Take care and stay safe everyone! @nuclearblasteurope @nuclearblastusa

*** DECIBEL MAGAZINE COVER STORY *** Having a cover story for Decibel Magazine is a huge thing for us. We are really proud of how it turned out; it is very clear that Matt Solis is both a great writer and a good listener and interpretor of both what is said and not. The story has several stories within it; about the team effort and of a unity and dedication from everyone in the band, and of the importance of the contributions from our two newest members Iver Sandøy (main clean vocals & drums) and Haakon Vinje (keys & backing vocals) on the album, and more! Add the shots done by Ester Segarra Photography in Bergen - and you have the perfect Enslaved-read! Our thanks go out to Albert Muldrian & Decibel Magazine! You can purchase your issue of the magazine here: https://tinyurl.com/enslaveddb

It is incredible to see this line up growing into a collection of fantastic artists. We are extremely honored to headline this festival! Back in October when Ivar sat with Shane, we only dreamt it could end up like this. Those two pulled off one hell of a curated line up in a landscape that couldn't fit more and coincidentally be a close to perfect match for us to reveal to the world what we have been working on the past months!

Ivar and Enslaved have an exciting announcement for you! We are thrilled to share that the band will be returning once more to Beyond the Gates @beyond_the_gates_festival - this time performing their legendary "Below The Lights" record in its entirety! This comes after the bands legendary 2017 set when they played all of "Vikingligr Veldi" and their 2018 performance of the entirety of "Frost". "Below The Lights" is not only among the most critically acclaimed Enslaved records, it also captured the band at a crucial turning point, shifting from the traditional extreme metal of their inception towards the more progressive elements that they would embrace later in their career. This will be a great tribute to the bands impressive history! Tickets are available online: https://www.ticketmaster.no/artist/beyond-the-gates-tickets/900350?language=en-us&fbclid=IwAR3t_12AXpuhYT9jLKZdxMiIXg0uLW7gsVhRq-sydXmPmEwu9eXSdRdqUhc
