Enslaved - 'Caravans to the Outer Worlds' (Live from The Otherworldly Big Band Experience)

Blinded by greed
Imprisoned by the distance
Thralls to the idol-self
Scream in fear of the end

Gifted sight
Rejected chains
Freedom gained
Endless spin of the wheel

Esoteric navigation
Through the astral storms

The fires of strife lost their colors
When corruption took hold
Claiming the kingmaker's seat
In the maddened court's ruins

Our stories died on their journeys
As the fools all spoke their minds
Buried under rotting leaves
From rootless too-young trees

The Tribes of Sense and Earth
Caravans of the Shadow-Circle

The Warrior turns her back
On the ignoble battle
A sword-arm put to better use
Raising sails towards the Outer Worlds

Enslaved - 'Heimdal' (album)
Φέρει ως τίτλο το όνομα Θεού της Σκανδιναβικής μυθολογίας ("Heimdal"), είναι το 16ο full length album των Enslaved και έχει προγραμματισθεί να κυκλοφορήσει τον πρώτο ανοιξιάτικο μήνα του νέου έτους...

Ivar Bjørnson: «When it comes to this last studio session, what I remember most vividly is being in complete awe; on our sixteenth album, mind you - of the talent and dedication I am surrounded by in this band. Everyone went to war for this album.

I had given everything I had, and then a lot more, to write this album. The way the entire band, which also happens to be my best and closest friends and in effect family, then took in the songs and made them their own, and ours; it re-created the album on a higher level...

I am also very fond of a more concrete memory: me and Grutle being in Örebro for the mix with Jens Bogren. Due to outside factors Iver could not be there in person with us - he was there through phone, interwebs and telex - all of a sudden you had the Primeval Source of Idiocy (aka Bjørnson & Kjellson), with no professional or even human common sense to exert some balancing influence.

Of course we decided to celebrate the development of a great album with “some drinks”. I will end that tale right there. What I wanted to say is that the ability to learn is strong in Enslaved - but we also know when and where not to never learn; which is equally important (I would say that, wouldn’t I?).

This album will forever be a sonic testament to what this group of coast-born friends are able to create together - through our instinct as a collective - balancing construction and destruction, expansion and contraction, joy and withdrawal, day and night.»
