As part of the influential second wave of black metal bands that emerged from Norway in the early 1990s, Enslaved stood out with their unorthodox song structures and all-consuming commitment to Viking mythology. On this EP, they explore metal’s outermost boundaries, placing rasping vocals and runic odes atop a bed of heavily textured, blackened space prog. It is imperious and beautiful in equal measure, a fine offering from these five Norsemen of the apocalypse.
