Enslaved Unveils New Album “E”

Avant-garde Norwegian group Enslaved will unleash a new studio album on October 13th 2017. This 14th full-length album sets the musical mind-twisters free from genre boundaries and offers a mix of prog, extreme metal, and shoegaze on eight tracks with a playing time of more than an hour.

Elegantly titled “E,” the album was once again written by the unholy alliance of guitarist Ivar Bjørnson (music, lyrics) and singer/bassist Grutle Kjellson (lyrics) and marks the introduction of new keyboard master and clean vocalist Håkon Vinje. The album was mixed and mastered at the Fascination Street Studios by Jens Bogren.

As support for this brave sound journey, the group brought several guest musicians on board for the songs “Hiindsiight” and “Feathers Of Eolh,” including Wardruna’s Einar Kvitrafn Selvik, flutist Daniel Mage, and jazz saxophonist Kjetil Møster.

A first single will land online this coming Friday, while the full track listing contains these majestic anthems:

01. Storm Son (10:54)
02. The River’s Mouth (5:12)
03. Sacred Horse (8:12)
04. Axis Of The Worlds (7:49)
05. Feathers Of Eolh (8:06)
06. Hiindsiight (9:32)

Details Of New Album “By The Storm” Available From Craving

In the eye of the storm! The music from Germany’s Craving carries influences of extreme metal, folk, power metal and classic with it to leave a real battlefield behind. The self-titled debut and follow-up “At Dawn,” as well as numerous shows and festivals all over Europe (alongside Ensiferum, Equilibrium, o.a.) already proved the strength of the band and the songs. The band also won over artists like Helge Stang (ex-Equilibrium), Nils Loeffler (Orden Ogan) and Chris Caffery (Savatage), who did gueat appearances.

On the newest piece of work “By The Storm,” the band is feistier than ever with a matured songwriting and a production that leaves enough space for all musical ingredients. Guitarist and singer Ivan Chertov produced the album on his own and once again left the mixing and mastering to Christoph Brandes (Finsterforst, Necrophagist, Imperium Dekadenz). The band’s passion for the literature of George R. R. Martin not only inspired the lyrics but it also lead to the idea of doing a cover-version of the “Game Of Thrones” theme. This bonus track rounds down the album perfectly.

On November 25th, Craving will take you “By The Storm” via Apostasy Records! Besides the jewel case edition, the album will be available as a digipak (including two bonus tracks) and as a boxset consisting of the digipak, an autograph card, a patch, a guitar pick and a certificate of authenticity.

The track list for “By The Storm” is:

1. Fulgur Immortale
2. By Storm
3. Cave Of A Dream
4. Penelopes Prayer
5. Spirits Of The Dead
6. Seven Steps To Darkness
7. One With Darkness
8. Eyes Of Winter
9. The Stone
10. Wenn der Wind sich dreht
11. Wielder Of Storms
12. The Fountain Of Memory
13. Game Of Thrones (Cover) (Bonus Track – Digipak Only)
14. Torn Apart (Bonus Track – Digipak Only)
