Psychedelic viking metal! Enslaved keep pushing themselves further outwards in new directions. They’ve always tossed in some odd parts on all 9 of their albums - this is their most difficult yet rewarding album. A DEFINITE headphones album. Isa (say “E- saw”) is the rune that = ice, delaying progress of something in wait of transformation. |
((((1)))) Trippy, short intro that works only if your hearing the whole album.
(((((2))))) Spiraling & repetitive, lots of stop/starts with Grutle’s intense vox, guest vox by Abbath (Immortal)
((((((3)))))) Steady rhythmic, strangely poppy chorus? Guitars are a bit like Voi Vod.
((((((4))))) Trippy, prog-laden heaviness, harsh & incredible melodic vocals + a lotta King Crimson influence. (I swear they nabbed something from “In The Court...”)
(((((5))))) Tight, simple riffing with 70’s keyboards, (like Rush?) & forever changing tempos & moods. Give it a few spins-it’s a weird one.
((((((6))))) Sort of speedy, spinning tempo + mostly harsh vox & fantastic chorus.
(((((7))))) Aggressive mid-paced & steady, multi-tracked vox + total Camel/Crimson melodic breakdown.
(((((8))))) Instrumental with burly 6-7 note riff & spacey keyboards
((((((9)))))) Epic, very prog laden, melodic vox then descends into total snarling metal parts - gallop riffs & more spacey keyboards & all sorts of other stuff.
(((10)))) Short, spacey outro.
