Enslaved debut new song

Norwegian progressive black metallers Enslaved are currently streaming the video for 'Homebound', the first single taken from their forthcoming album Utgard, that will be released in fall 2020.

Stream 'Homebound' official music video below.

The band states: " '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."

Enslaved recently revealed details about their new album: "Utgard bears countless meanings to us; an image, metaphor, an esoteric 'location', a word on its own etc. – on different levels and layers. From Norse mythology we know it as a landscape where the giants roam; where the gods of Asgard have no control; dangerous, chaotic, uncontrollable and where madness, creativeness, humour and chaos dwell.

The album is a journey into and through Utgard. It is a place of unification of that which is above and that which lies below. It is not about avoiding fear of the pitch-black darkness (it will keep on growing until the next confrontation), but to go into the darkness itself. This is the rebirth of the individual. In a world that has become so obsessed with the false lights of greed, jealousy and egotism this is a necessary journey.

Utgard is not a fairytale, it is a vital part of both your mind and your surroundings, and it has been since the dawn of mankind. Acknowledging that this realm exists and is a vital part of the self, has inspired us deeply since the early days of our lives. Enjoy our journey to the outer limits."

Hey NoTrap, cool how you put some credits under the embedded video, looks good. Cool how the drummer is singing. His vocals aren't amazing but it's a nice touch for sure. Music is good as always

I actually don't mind the vocals. Interplay between the guitarists might take a bit to get used too but I can see myself liking it after a few plays. And agree the consistency from these guys is crazy.

Wow, their new drummer can sing his heart out. That was a really impressive song.

The intro riff is classic psych-Enslaved riffing.

"band has been on a roll ever since Hordanes Land"

Are y'all saying that Nema is bad?

Anyways, song is cool. Not sure how I feel about the drummer singing - I like his voice, but I don't know if it fits too well and would have preferred the keyboardist to sing instead. Still, I'm sure he just wanted a chance to sing and they wanted to give it to him, so I can get behind it.
