Tracklist comes as follows:

1. Heimvegen 05:37
2. Alu Misyrki 05:02
3. Synthesis 06:19
4. Nordlys (instrumental) 05:45
5. The Sleeping Gods 05:39
6. Disintegrator 05:04
7. Striker 05:12

The songs originally appeared on extremely limited EPs between the full-length albums “Axioma Ethica Odini” and “Riitiir”, and is recorded both in Solslottet Studio in Bergen, as well as Enslaved member’s own studios and partly in the deep woods of Valevaag on the south-west coast of Norway. Like the songs itself, the production is a mix of old and new; high tech and no-tech – a mix of concepts that has been essential in achieving their signature sound. Ivar Bjørnson and Grutle Kjellson co-produced the material together with long-time collaborator Iver Sandøy.

The album has lyrics sung in both Norwegian, English and Old Norse, and the theme centres on mythology and the esoteric side of the runes; as well as contrasting the Norse Ways as a polytheistic belief system to the monotheistic plague of the Big World Religions. The music nods respectfully to the wildly varying deities that make up the pantheon of our inspiration, both “then” and “now”.

World Premiere: Enslaved are headlining Beyond the Gates Festival in August 2017 with «Vikingligr Veldi»!

September 24, 2016

For the first time ever…and the last, they will perform their groundbreaking debut album «Vikingligr Veldi» in its entirety, including guest musicians and artists!


Featuring also Mayhem performing «De Mysteris Dom Sathanas», Mgla, Dark Sonority, Cult of Fire, Vemod and Negative Plane, Beyond the Gates: BJØRGVIN BLACK MASS will take place at USF Verftet Bergen, 24th – 26th of August 2017.

Founding member and guitarist Ivar Bjørnson says about their “Vikingligr Veldi » live performance:

“Nostalgia is a sword with at least two edges; cynics use it to hide writer’s blocks and poor numbers (like; how many reunions can you do, really?) – but used soberly and selectively it becomes a source of pride, inspiration and fond memories: a strong, creative nostalgia that utilise the past and history for forward-thinking.  This what we want to do with our special performance of the entire “Vikingligr Veldi” album at Beyond the Gates 2017. It will be the first, and probably last, time.

It is a special album for us, and before this point in time there has never been an event suitable for even considering a full rendition. Now that it has finally been released on vinyl, Z. Bielak has an active hand in the release and also the festival – and Beyond the Gates moved into USF… the runes and stars all aligned and told us: this has to be done. And done it shall be!”

Enslaved « Vikingligr Veldi » is out tomorrow, Sept. 23!

The wait is almost over! Tomorrow Sept. 23, the first ever official vinyl version of Enslaved legendary debut album « Vikingligr Veldi » will be released on By Norse Music! We are very proud and looking forward you can finally discover it as well as the new artwork by Z. Bielak (Ghost, Mayhem, etc.), which includes four brand new illustrations specially made for the album!

Enslaved VV cover small

Artist Zbigniew M. Bielak says about his work for the album: “I see ‘Vikingligr Veldi’ album as a landmark of its time, inseparably tied to the era’s opulently imaginative yet sparsely presented aesthetics – with booklet images from ‘Transilvanian Hunger’ or ‘Hvis Lyset Tar Oss’ coming to mind instantly. When we set out to work on this reissue, I suggested preparing four song illustrations to enchance narrative of the lyrics. It was a welcome non-surprise to learn that Ivar and Grutle had much of the detailed imagery in mind when working on the album already, so it was a pleasure to have own hand guided by a well outlined concept.”

These four illustrations will soon be made available for purchase from Zbigniew M. Bielak as limited edition handprints, signed and numbered by the artist.

Enslaved to release “The Sleeping Gods – Thorn” CDdigipak/LP/digital on November 11!

September 7, 2016

Enslaved releases “The Sleeping Gods – Thorn”; a full-length album comprised of rare material from 2010/2011. For the first time this unique collection of experimental material, also connecting with their early roots, is available as an album

Costin Chioreanu of Twilight 13 Media (Roadburn Festival, Opeth, Darkthrone, At The Gates, etc.) did the beautiful new layout, including mesmerizing new illustrations, displaying a unique symbiosis between two of our times’ most exciting visual and sonic artists.

Costin says: “My mission in this case was to melt imagery done in the past for “Thorn” and the one for “The Sleeping Gods” into one coherent piece. So, this image came out by taking the strict direction of “Thorn”, combined with the symmetry of “The Sleeping Gods”, then passed everything through my vision and added a bit more spicy dreamy flavor. No matter how strange it sounds, I need to confess “The Sleeping Gods” is on my top 3 Enslaved records, so it was a very big honor for me to be a part of  this release!”

It will be released on:

  • Limited to 250 blue vinyl (webshop edition)
  • Black vinyl
  • Digipak CD
  • Digital

Including an exclusive insight into the history of the recorded material by Grutle Kjellson.

Pre-order starts SEPT. 30th!

Ivar Bjørnson and Grutle Kjellson from Enslaved co-produced the material together with long-time collaborator Iver Sandøy.

The album has lyrics sung in both Norwegian, English and Old Norse, and the theme centres on mythology and the esoteric side of the runes; as well as contrasting the Norse Ways as a polytheistic belief system to the monotheistic plague of the Big World Religions. The music nods respectfully to the wildly varying deities that make up the pantheon of inspiration for Enslaved, both “then” and “now”. There are traces of the both proto-black metal of Bathory, the classic Rock and Heavy Metal of the 70s and 80s, the synthisized and sequenced masters of the 70s, prog-rock, world/ Norse folk music, Norwegian Black Metal of the 90s, modern classical music, goth rock a la Fields of the Nephilim and much more.

Wardruna premier “Odal” and launch pre-orders

August 19, 2016

Flyer1
It is with great excitement we present the song “Odal” from Wardruna´s upcoming album “Runaljod – Ragnarok” set to be released 21 October through By Norse Music.

Listen to “ODAL” here!
or
Read all about it and listen to “Odal” on Metal Hammer UK here!

This release is the third installments in a trilogy of albums that began with ‘Runaljod – gap var Ginnunga’ (2009) and continued with ‘Runaljod – Yggdrasil’ (2013). The song itself features special appearances from Einar´s own children.

Einar Selvik comments on the song: 
“Odal” represent such things as family, heritage, birthright and allodial right but also inheritance in broader and more metaphorical sense.  Serious and reflected poetry melting together with the sound of a child’s voice is for me a very strong expression in itself. And with thematic like this as a starting point, it is safe to say that doing this song together with my own two children made it very emotionally charged for me, which I can only hope is something reflected clearly in the end result.”

Wardruna single premiere og forhåndssalg

Hør på ”Odal” her! 
Det er med stor glede vi presenterer låten ”Odal” fra Norrøn-folk gruppen Wardruna sitt kommende album ”Runaljod – Ragnarok” som utgis 21 oktober i år. Utgivelsen er siste del av en album-trilogi som startet med «Runaljod – gap var Ginnunga» (2009) og fortsatte med «Runaljod – Yggdrasil» (2013).
Singelen inneholder gjesteopptreden av komponist Einar Selvik sine egne barn.

Einar kommenterer:
”Odal” er bildet på familie, slekt og odelsrett samt ens arv in en bredere og mer billedlig kontekst. For meg er det å høre alvorlig, dypsindig lyrikk smelte sammen med lyden av barnestemmer, et meget sterkt uttrykk. Og med en tematikk som dette som et utgangspunkt ble det naturligvis sterkt og følelsesladet å gjøre denne låten sammen med mine egne to barn, noe jeg håper og tror også gjenspeiles i det ferdige resultatet.

Forhåndsbestill platen samt andre produkt i begrenset opplag

WARDRUNA:  ‘RUNALJOD – RAGNAROK’ – COVER, TRACKLIST & RELEASE DATE.

August 8, 2016

Wardruna - ragnarok-front-v2 SMALL

Release date is set for Oct. 21st, 2016.

It is the third instalment in a trilogy of albums that began with ‘Runaljod – gap var Ginnunga’ (2009) and continued with ‘Runaljod – Yggdrasil’ (2013).
In short, the ambitious idea behind the trilogy was to create musical interpretations of each of the twenty-four old Nordic runes. It proved to be a lengthy and challenging task. Some of the material on the album even date back to 2003 and the early stages of the project, when multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Einar Selvik started to develop the genre-defying sound and style that Wardruna have become known for. It is a contemporary sound, but one that is characterized by the use of old and historical instruments like Kraviklyra, taglharpe, goat horns, birchbark lures and more. The vocals range from whispering voices to melodic song and mighty choirs. All performed with sincerity and conviction.

Musically and conceptually there is a clear continuity between all three of the albums, but with time and experience comes refinement. And new elements has certainly been added along the way. Most notable on ‘Runaljod – Ragnarok’ is the use of the Scandinavian bronze lures, whose iconic sound and appearance make them a perfect fit with Wardruna’s instrumentation and concept. Special guest performances by Einar’s own children and Skarvebarna children’s choir must also be noted.

‘Runaljod – Ragnarok’ was written, recorded and produced by Einar Selvik from 2003 to 2016 at his own Fimbulljóð studio.

Tracklist reads as follows:
1. Tyr
2. UruR
3. Isa
4. MannaR – Drivande
5. MannaR – Liv
6. Raido
7. Pertho
8. Odal
9. Wunjo
10. Runaljod

A tour in support of the album will commence in November, with concerts in Norway, Germany, Poland, Netherlands, France, Sweden, Denmark, the UK and the US.

As many of the concerts were sold out quickly and further touring is planned for 2017. The saga continues.

 

—— NORWEGIAN ——

Norrøn-folk gruppen Wardruna er klar for å presentere sitt tredje album, «Runaljod – Ragnarok». Det er siste del av en album-trilogi som startet med «Runaljod – gap var Ginnunga» (2009) og fortsatte med «Runaljod – Yggdrasil» (2013).

Utgivelsesdato: 21 oktober 2016

 

Kort sagt var den ambisiøse idéen bak trilogien å skape musikalske tolkninger av alle 24 runene i den gamle runerekken. Det viste seg å være et langvarig og utfordrende arbeid. En del av materialet på albumet daterer seg tilbake til 2003 og den tidlige fasen av prosjektet, da multi-instrumentalist og låtskriver Einar Selvik begynte å utvikle den sjangeroverskridende stilen og det særegne lydbildet som Wardruna har blitt viden kjent for. Det er et moderne lydbilde, men preget av gamle og historiske instrumenter som Kraviklyra, taglharpe, bukkehorn, neverlur og mer. Vokalen spenner fra hviskende stemmer til melodisk sang og mektige kor. Alt fremført med oppriktighet og overbevisning.

Musikalsk og konseptuelt sett er det tydelig kontinuitet mellom alle tre Runaljod-albumene, men med tid og erfaring kommer dyktighet og finesse. Nye elementer har også blitt lagt til underveis.

Den mest slående nyvinningen på «Runaljod – Ragnarok» er bruken av den 3000 år gamle skandinaviske bronseluren. Med sin mektige lyd og ikoniske oppsyn passer den perfekt med Wardrunas instrumentering og konsept. Spesielle gjesteopptredener med Einars egne barn og Skarvebarna barnekor må også nevnes.

«Runaljod – Ragnarok» ble skrevet, innspilt og produsert av Einar Selvik fra 2003 til 2016 i hans eget Fimbulljóð studio.

NEW YORK BY NORSE showcase FEAT. Enslaved and Einar Selvik (of Wardruna)

June 22, 2016

“Just like it was for many Norsemen before us, after the success of our sonic raid in London, the desire to continue further westwards came faster than you can say Christopher Columbus. Viking jokes aside, it feels fantastic to announce New York By Norse. We aim to present a cultural event that encompass both the ancient as well as the contemporary and on a more personal note I am very much looking forward to do my first ever performance in New York!”— Einar Selvik of Wardruna.

This showcase will feature the set-up of Bjørnson: his computer, some keys, a few strings, a pedal or two, a video canon and sometimes, a trapeze artist. Dark, surprisingly rhythmic and hypnotic-psychedelic, yet minimizing, cutting away, subtracting and meditating upon the simplest essence of things, Bardspec uses of the best of the basic elements and building blocks that make up the whole to create a sonic atmosphere. Here, he will be joined by none other than Gorguts guitarist Kevin Hughes.

 

Einar Selvik Workshop – “The Thoughts and Tools Behind Wardruna”:

Einar speaks about his approach to Norse historical music and the extensive creative concept behind Wardruna´s ongoing Runaljod trilogy. Other topics will include his approach and study of the runes and other Norse esoteric arts, the oldest Nordic instruments, playfully acoustic Wardruna music, including the newest release of the trilogy, “Ragnarok” and a Q&A segment.

“2016 is Enslaved’s 25th anniversary as a band, and it is simply not acceptable leaving the US out of our celebrations. With a crazy schedule set for the year, we were turning every stone for an opening – and we found one! We are extremely proud to be able to present a double set in New York; to give the full width of old and new material, in conclusion of a fantastic year of celebration. When we started talking about By Norse and how we could bring the concept out into the world; “New York By Norse” was one of the first ideas to be verbalized. At the time it seemed more like a dream scenario than anything else. Then came London By Norse in March earlier this year; our first materialization of the concept – and it was a massive success! Turns out all these crazy visions were possible to turn into real life after all… and here we are.“ – Ivar Bjørnson Official of Enslaved.

EnslaEnslaved re-issues “Vikingligr Veldi” – for the first time ever out on vinyl this September!

Out: September 23rd!

The re-issue of “Vikingligr Veldi” will co-incide with Enslaved’s 25 European Tour and will be available in a LIMITED Enslaved 25 Webshop edition and a regular edition!

The astonishing new layout was done by Z. Bielak (Ghost, Mayhem, etc.) and includes four brand new illustrations specially made for this legendary album.

Z. Bielak has stayed true to the ideals of the era (it was originally scheduled for release in 1993); this 2LP Gatefold with illustrated pockets has been respectfully remastered for vinyl by Iver Sandøy; preserving every bit of original dynamics.

“We have been waiting since the day we recorded it, and at last it is happening! It has been a challenging journey, and it has demanded a lot of patience and understanding from all parts involved. The day we hold the finished product in our hand will be as sacred a day for us as the day we finished recording it”. – Ivar and Enslaved

Enslaved`s 1st full-length album was co-produced with the legendary Pytten in Grieghallen, Bergen, Norway. This album has lyrics in Icelandic, and is a tribute to the Norse landscape, history and mythology. The songs are matching these themes with long horizontal songscapes, dense atmospheres and winds from the past.

More details will be revealed soon!
