Recording of the new Enslaved record continues in Norway at this hour, and yes, chances are the fresh shit will fuck your kneecaps off.
To remind us that they are working hard on spectacular new sounds, Enslaved checked in with the following update, which is largely self-explanatory:
“As always, it is hard to formulate an exact direction Enslaved is or is not heading in with the new album. This duality is part of the essence of the band: The ability to maintain consistency and a strong identity and, at the same time, surprise both the oldest fans and even ourselves with new musical directions. The new material is darker and rawer, more aggressive and direct, yet continues the exploration deeper into progressive, softer, and more melodic territories with at times complex song structures, combined with unusually immediate (for Enslaved, at least) elements. The high level of energy in the songs reflects both an inspired and an ever-harder working band that keeps pushing their own and their associated genres’ limits.”
Cool. I’m psyched for this release. Looking forward to 2015, when it will see the commercial light of day. Hell knows this year has sucked harder than an Indonesian prostitute with a knife to her throat.
