Grutle Kjellson comments: “To me 'Forest Dweller' was the most immediate song on the album, at least in its earliest form as an instrumental demo. I spent quite some time to get into some of the other songs of the album, but this one seemed somehow logical, well logical by Enslaved standards that is. I had an idea for a lyric, and Ivar’s amazing and diverse riffs on this one made it easy to pan out the scripture. I made a rough plan on what to sing over it, and we actually ended up using some parts of those recordings on the album!
The song sort of showcases our representative samples of inspiration: Led Zep, Genesis, Destruction, Iron Maiden and David Bowie, to mention a schizophrenic tapestry of influences. It mirrors in the lyrics as well, which deals about both darkness and light in connection to the nature of Heimdal.”

haven't made a great album since Ritttier imo. they just dont evolve like they used to from album to album. still a great band though in their prime.
Nah Utgard was great and this will probably rip too. This band can't do wrong.
Didn't quite like Utgard initially, but it has grown on me considerably.
I fucking love Enslaved!
This goes alright actually
Utgard was okay
In addition, the new drummer sings way too much. His voice is really not great.
Didn't dislike this!
Axioma is their best album, and RIITIIR is very solid. Nothing since then has gone as hard, but my fingers are crossed for this one.
love how every single from this album has been very unique and experimental
Been on a skid for me since Axioma to be honest, ill check it out though.
I love all 4 songs released so far. Album is gonna slay per usual
Pretty cool track
Really love the first 30 seconds of this. Have not kept up with modern Enslaved at all tbh so Not sure how this.compares to their other stuff but when it transitions to the heavy stuff it doesn't feel like there is any translation whatsoever. Seems like two totally different tracks. It isn't too grating here for me but I'm not sure how I'd feels about a whole album with chunks like that if they tend to make a habit of it
One band I’ve never gotten into, where do I start
I'd start Frost and then follow it with Eld. Love me some early Enslaved
why not start with the debut, its one of their best
Listen to him instead ^
Idk why but I was under the impression Frost was the debut until you said that and I checked lol
Hell yeah thanks fellas
Been a while since I really listened to these guys. I like what i'm hearing. Congelia especially has a hypnotizing bass line going on
