Enslaved - 'Forest Dweller' (official music video)

In the time before time, I was fighting
The desperation, the grief, and the pain
The weapon of time I was yielding
So the kin wouldn´t vanish in vain
I held out my hand, befriended the slave
He gave me hospitality and trust
Blind to the ways of the flickering kind
His reward was my treacherous lust
The soldier bid me welcome, I bowed in awe
I told him the ways of my house
He beheld the son of sense and lust
In the morning the awareness aroused
Smugly I entered the realm of the king
As a herald of time and of space
We carved the runes, we drank and sang
To mankind, to gods and their grace
The tree set ablaze at the end of my days
Awaiting my deserved death yell
Long forgotten, no one whispers my name
In the mountains and forests, I´ll dwell

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...

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.»
