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

  • Time: 20.45 - 22.15

*** HOMEBOUND OUT NOW *** This is an exciting moment for us! We can finally show you the first song called "Homebound" from our forthcoming album "Utgard" that will be released in fall 2020. Homebound is about the greatest reward of exploring and travelling into unknown territory - to "go viking" if you will, turning Homebound at the end of the journey. It is a song that takes Enslaved on a musical journey that is as much an homage to those who dared so we could play our very own style of music: from nurturing blackened roots to nodding at zeppelins in the sky, beholding teutonic thrash titans and watching speeding motorpsychos take off into the futures. Watch the video for "Homebound" here: https://youtu.be/92ptxt1FQiU (link in bio) Listen to "Homebound" here: https://backl.ink/132605971 Enjoy! Oh and maybe we will have a Homebound related surprise for you later today ;)

Today we have a few words for you from Håkon Vinje, our awesome man on the keys! "As with the previous album, it was a great experience to create and be a part of, and if anything, to a greater extent this time, as we shared demos and ideas from an earlier stage of the writing process than previously, which gave more time to create a fitting and detailed contribution to the song. I felt that I could be more bold with the arrangements and ideas, as there was more time for trial and error. It was a great pleasure playing with the "new" addition Iver on vocals and drums as I love his groove and voice, both of which has made a great impact on the album. And as an extra bonus, all the studio sessions I have ever done, be it Seven Impale or Enslaved, has been done with Iver behind the wheel/mixer, so recording with him at Solslottet Studio feels like being home. or at a crazy friend, which is mostly true hahaha. my favourite part of the process however, is without a doubt the final brainstorm and recording session done at Grutle's house. it's just the best recipe for a great evening: bring vital recording equipment, instruments, and all the best food and beverage you can think of. make great music and food simultaneously! I guess it's just something very special with the entire group sitting in the sofa, listening to whomever is playing, while giving great/crazy ideas, input, or support!" - Håkon Vinje

*** UTGARD - INSTRUMENTATION INSIGHT *** If you wonder about something is possible to make, build, fix or conjure out of matter – guitar-luthier Arild Gertz will not only know how to do it, he will do it, and also in such a way that you are blown away. He is so practically talented that you can forget that he is first and foremost a mind-blowingly talented artist at heart (and a chef, and a tech, and a mechanic, and a tattoo artist…). I am lucky enough to have had Arild as my friend for many beard lengths now, and am constantly in awe of all that he can do. I knew that he had built a guitar here and a guitar there in the past, and they looked smashing – but then he showed me a photo of a 12-string electric he build for our common friend last year and it was done. I have written a third of the new Enslaved-album on the 12-string el guitar that I have already – my Chamb 12-string has been a great sibling to my Monson Guitar flock of beautis for years already; but it is not a guitar to take out on our musical raids. So when I saw this guitar he had just built it was like one of those cartoon-moments when the wolf-guy sees the hot wolf-woman: with the eyes and heart shooting out from him, the car-horns sound and what not. “Arild, can you build me a an electric 12-string?”. I might not be a man that has a lot of answers, but I will say this: I do have some good questions at times – and this makes it to the top part of the list. It has been like a pleasant dream; being sent photos of the guitar during the entire creation process, and now playing my songs on this finished and unbelievably fantastic guitar. It plays like nothing else, and sounds just… cosmically, mythogically, sonically superb! In parallell with tis build I also entered into partnership with my favorite guitar pickups Fishman Pickup – so Arild installed a pair of the Fishman Moderns humbuckers in it (as well as in my main guitars; the Monson Nomads, while he was at it). What an absolute privilege to own such a unique piece of art – and what a privilege to have such a friend! Arild, I will make and play an endless stream of bearded Bergen-made tunes on this Bergen-made magickal weapon! - Ivar Bjørnson
