Norwegian metallers ENSLAVED have announced a string of shows entitled ‘Enslaved 25‘ as part of London By Norse 2016.

The first of the ‘Enslaved 25’ shows will be at The Dome on March 17, with support acts to be announced, and their journey will continue the following night at The Underworld. This rare event will culminate with a night at Shepherds Bush Empire on March 19, which includes a performance by SKUGGSJA and feature WARDRUNA’s second ever appearance in the UK plus a rare art exhibition by former GORGOROTH and GOD SEED vocalist Gaahl.

On March 18, The Forge in Camden will see ENSLAVED’s Ivar Bjørnson presenting his immersive electro-ambient project BARDSPEC, while Einar Selvik will be presenting his workshop, a spellbinding solo performance and wide-ranging talk that takes in the philosophy of WARDRUNA, the background to the ancient instruments he uses, and on the historical background to SKUGGSJA.

In a statement, ENSLAVED guitarist Ivar Bjørnson had this to say about the events: “That London By Norse is taking place is just epic! It is truly a wish list of an event, encompassing all the elements I could hope for during the course of a London weekend: playing with my own band(s) and performing with my friend and brother-in-arms Einar Selvik and his WARDRUNA warriors. This will be one for the history books, I simply cannot wait!”

Single show tickets to the ‘Enslaved 25’ shows are now available plus full weekend tickets for London By Norse 2016.
