Norwegian psychedelic post-black metal band ENSLAVED has set "Axioma Ethica Odini" as the title of its new album, due in Europe on September 27 and in North America on September 28.
ENSLAVED's eleventh studio album was recorded at three different studios in Bergen, Norway: 1) Duper; 2) Earshot (belonging to ENSLAVED members Herbrand Larsen [keyboardist/backing vocalist] and Ice Dale [lead guitarist]); and 3) Peersonal Sound (owned by rhythm guitarist/songwriter Ivar Bjï¿½rnson). It is the follow-up to 2008's "Vertebrae", which sold over 1,100 copies its first week of release in North America and debuted on the American Billboard Hard Music chart at #11 and on the Billboard Heatseekers chart at #49. In ENSLAVED's native country, "Vertebrae" entered the official chart at #20 and earned the band its third consecutive Spellemann award (the largest and oldest Norwegian music awards show, which is often referred to as the country's equivalent to the American Grammy Awards). "Vertebrae" also won Terrorizer magazine's coveted "Album of the Year" award for 2008.
Imhotep's Paul Kearns recently conducted an interview with ENSLAVED guitarist/songwriter Ivar Bjï¿½rnson. Watch the chat below.
ENSLAVED will embark on the "Circling Above and Within Tour" of Europe in October.
Swedish Viking metallers AMON AMARTH have issued the following update:
"We have come to an end. After almost two years of touring we have now reached the twilight of the thunder god.
Ruisrock in Turku, Finland officially marked the very last show in support for our latest album. Weï¿½re still doing a few selected off shows though. Weï¿½ll be making our very first appearance in Japan at Loud Park Festival in October. And early next year weï¿½ll be performing on the high seas at 70000 Tons Of Metal.
Weï¿½ve had an amazing time on the road supporting this album. Got to tour with many great bands and met loads of awesome people. There have been highs and lows. Highlights include our first tour in South America, performing in Beijing, Taiwan and India, and fulfilled a long time dream by sharing the stage with the almighty SLAYER.
We want to thank our loyal friends and fans for the support. Thanks to our crew who has been putting up with us for so long. Thanks to our management and label for covering our backs and everyone else who have been involved in some way, big or small, in bringing us to the far reaches of the world.
We've taken the first steps towards the new album but there is much to do. Weï¿½ll try to keep you updated on the things going on in the Amon camp as we lock ourselves away to write this new album. Stay tuned."
