Blackened metal heroes Enslaved have released a riff heavy new single and video for the track “Kingdom.” From a sonic standpoint. “Kingdom” expands upon the sound and style Enslaved drew upon with their 2021 EP, Caravans To The Outer Worlds.
Ivar Bjørnson states:
“’Kingdom’—a tribute to the endurance of ideas and the people that carry them forward through hardship and fatigue, for the benefit of us all. Musically, it is a tribute to the Riff and the Rite: to the Teutonic Thrash kings, to Space Rock, to the Ambient pioneers of the ’70s. With this, we ask you to join us on this coming trek. Thanks for listening!”
Enslaved were formed in 1991 by Ivar Bjørnson and Grutle Kjellson. Their first demo Yggdrasill was released in 1992, followed up with Hordanes Land in 1993, and their debut record, Vikingligr Veldi, in 1994.
