ENSLAVED have entered the studio to begin work on a new album!
Two years have passed since the release of 2015’s In Times and now, the Norwegian progressive black metal band have entered the studio to begin work on their as of yet untitled fourteenth studio album. The recordings are taking place at Duper & Solslottet Studios in Bergen throughout April, and will be mixed and mastered by Jens Bogren at Fascination Street Studios. Speaking about working on the new album, guitarist Ivar Bjørnson says, “it is absolutely fantastic to be in the studio with these new songs. So many doors were opened with In Times and the times (sic) that followed; for us as a band, for me as a composer and I guess for us all on a personal level. I have never worked this hard to put together music for an album before, and that intensity continues into the studio where everybody is giving their everything, every hour of every day. We are a tighter unit than ever before, which is obvious sonically. The concept conjured by myself and old war-brother Grutle is the strongest we have worked with. Finally, I am proud that we have taken more risks than ever before, and one in particular – and it is yielding awesome results. What does that mean? Stay tuned to find out!”
More information on the upcoming album will be revealed in due course.
