“I do think this new album is the most consistent body of work we have so far: it incorporates our ‘blacker’ past with our influences from prog rock, our present sense of absolute freedom, and the joy of being in this band, if that makes any sense. It is higher in energy, more aggressive, yet more beautiful and subtle. It simply sounds inspired.” –Enslaved guitarist & composer Ivar Bjornson

Reviews:

Formed in Haugesund, Norway in 1991 by Bjornson (then 13 year old) and Kjellson (vocalist/bassist, the 17) and named after black metal band Immortal’s demo track “Enslaved In Rot,” Enslaved have release a dozen full length albums as well as a number of splits and eps. Having toured the world many times, Enslaved have become one of the most recognizable blackened metal bands currently playing. The band’s previous album “Riitiir”, which was released in 2012, debuted at #8 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart in the US and charted in the Billboard Top 200 in countries all over the world like Norway, UK, Finland, Germany and more!

Composed and produced by Enslaved members themselves, “In Times” is the band’s 13th full length release. Recorded in Norway as well as deep in the woods of Valevag, south of Bergen, “In Times” consists of 6 tracks with a total running time of fifty-three minutes.

“The songs are extensions of my inner and outer life, the thoughts I am aware of having, as well as those that lie too deep to register in everyday consciousness. The songs are the resounds of grandiose altered states and mundane tiny micro-events. In addition, they are, of course, also the result of inspiration from other music and art,” continues the band’s guitarist, Ivar Bjornson.
