Chuck Norse:



Definitely one of my all time favorite metal bands ever (although, I have not been very excited about most of their output after the Monumension album). Enslaved's early records evoke that gorgeously raw, yet savagely graceful black metal sound that (as the inside cover states) is Viking Metal. Folk melodies buried under walls of blazing buzz saw guitars (that are playing some of the weirdest, fastest, yet strangely angular and catchy riffs ever!), frantic drums pounding and bashing away with lots of weird fills and jazzy post-rock interludes, dazzling bass that drives every note forward with precision.

The thing that sets Enslaved apart from their counterparts (and probably the factor that has given them incredible longevity in scene where bands debut and vanish in record time), is the fact that they write some damn good songs! Their sense of timing is infused with sheer brilliance and astounding creativity within the melodies, structure, timing, and presentation of this awe-inspiring album.

nice blog, just stumbled across it tonight. I can only agree with you on Enslaved's post 'Monumension' output. Ruun, Isa, Mardraum, and Monumension are snoozefests. I would recommend you check out the album 'Below The Lights'. It's excellent, and with the mild prog bent your blog has, you should REALLY give that record a second listen. I wish I had a link on hand to post, I am sure it can't be that hard to find for download though.
