ENSLAVED Speak About The Recording Process


On October 13th, black avantgarde Norwegians ENSLAVED will unleash their 14th album »E« taking the band to fresh and more progressive shores. Today they unveil the third album trailer, in which guitarist and songwriter Ivar Bjørnson guides you through the recording studio where »E« was created, while singer and bassist Grutle Kjellson explains the band’s working relationship with co-producer Iver Sandøy. Watch the trailer here:

Grutle comments: “The whole recording process took about 3 or 4 weeks. The album is produced like usual by Iver Sandøy, Ivar and myself. The album was mixed by Jens Bogren at the Fascination Street studio in Sweden and this was the 4th time that he did the mix for us and we’re really satisfied about the result – top notch work this time too, buddy!”

Soon the band will unveil another excerpt of their upcoming album, but in case you missed the stunning music video of the 10 minute epic single ‘Storm Son’ animated by Josh Graham [SOUNDGARDEN, NEUROSIS] you can watch it here:
