Norwegian progressive/psychedelic extreme metallers Enslaved have released The Sleeping Gods through Scion A/V as a free downloadable five-song EP.
The effort follows last year’s near-universally praised Axioma Ethica Odini, and finds the quintet once again expanding the boundaries of what metal can be, deftly incorporating influences from across the musical spectrum, says a press release.
Go here to get it. Registration is required. Small price to pay, I say.
Mainly recorded in Solslottet Studio in Bergen, and partly in the band’s own home studio, the effort finds the group sounding leaner and more confident than ever, part and parcel of maintaining a presence at the foreground of the international metal movement for 20 years.
