Enslaved drop 2nd single

2020-07-10 by Fernando Alves CONTRIBUTOR | 26 Comments
Norwegian progressive black metallers Enslaved are currently streaming the video for 'Jettegryta', the second single taken from their forthcoming album Utgard, out on October 2nd via Nuclear Blast Records.

Stream 'Jettegryta' official music video below.


Video by Gaui H Pic - Gauih.com | Co-producer - Marita Joensen

Actors - Ziva Ivadottir and Kolbeinn Þór Þorgeirsson Heiðdal

Band states: "Iceland was the perfect place to shoot the video for Jettegryta. Jettegryta translates to Giant´s Cauldron and refers to a phenomenon in nature, where rivers/running water - over a long period - create an often cylindrical hole in solid rock. In ancient Norse folklore, the Jette/Jotun (giants) made these cauldrons to cook in. Although these particular nature phenomena don’t exist on the volcanic island of Iceland, there are plenty of other places on this magical island that could lead to the dwelling of the giants! When Norse settlers came to Iceland in the 8th and 9th century, the fumes and fog from the hot streams and the volcanos clearly told them that this island was inhabited by elves, dwarves and giants! This reminded them of the stories of Utgard. To them, Iceland was on the doorsteps of Utgard, the outer borders of the world of men; a gateway. The lyrics of the song deal with entering such a mythological and esoteric place; deep within your own mind and imagination, a gateway into the dreams, the unconscious and the realm of chaos. We have tried to transform these words into this clip, and maybe you can feel a glimpse of what those early Icelanders felt when they first entered this realm!"

That change 3/4s through is so wtf, doesn't even sonically fit the song in any way, first half is one of the best things they have done in a while.

It is definitely an awkward transition. Not sure I'm into it either. The part itself sounds fine. Just kinda sounds like they forced some random section into the song

wow epic video and killer riffs all throughout the song, i like that transition, i think it sounds twisted in a way, i agree it's a bit jarring though. still though great storytelling once again from the band in line with my own interests so basically right up my alley thematically and thankfully musically also

When the singles came out from the last album 'E' I remember being unimpressed with them initially and now Storm Son after I spent time with it more, became one of my favorite songs. So it goes to show that this band's music clicks more after you listen to it more.

I don't really look to the band as a prog band though to me they're just a weird black metal band. To call them prog seems a bit weird though I know a lot of people do.
