Oh yeah, motherfuckers!
This is most excellent news, and a good note to end the day on, because, in short, I’m up to my fucking earlobes in work. This has been one of the craziest weeks I’ve had in a long time, and I just can’t wait for this shit to be over.
Anyways, progressive and psychedelic Norwegian black metal band Enslaved have signed a new worldwide deal with Nuclear Blast Records, one of my favorite labels.
The band’s new album will be released in the fall, a press release says.
“We’re very, very (yes, very) pleased and proud to sign this deal with Nuclear Blast worldwide,” Enslaved said in a statement.
“We’ve already worked with Nuclear Blast U.S. through our two latest albums; and our personal friendships with Nuclear Blast guys and gals on both sides of the Atlantic are even older. There’s no drama — we take great pride in the fact that there seldom is with us — it is simply a matter of one contract ending, and us going for what seems to be our best option at this point in time and space.
“This time the best choice for Enslaved is changing things up somewhat,” the statement adds. “We’re excited to see what the mixture of passion and professionalism at Nuclear Blast can do with the Enslaved name in the years to come. There is no doubt that the level of ambition, the experience and seriousness about what we do, form perfect common ground for Enslaved and Nuclear Blast. We’re in the process of making a new album that will initiate our new partnership, watch out for the approaching wave of news about that. For now, let’s just say that the album will be an absolute (Nuclear) blast!”
That’s mad fucking phat, folks. I can’t wait for this fall now. I usually hate the fall, too — as its the slayer of summer and precum of winter.
