Enslaved are warming up for their biggest autumn to date after wrapping up their brand new album – ahead of November’s UK tour in support of Opeth.
And frontman Grutle Kjellson has revealed the band’s line-up changes created an exciting new dynamic within the Norwegians’ ranks.
Enslaved’s as yet untitled opus – the follow-up to 2015’s In Times – will drop later this year.
And Kjellson said: “I’m always psyched and proud when we finish an album recording and this is no exception!
“It was a really exciting process this time with the line-up change and everything.
“Although it wasn’t a dramatic change, the band dynamics were suddenly different.
“It was like a little reboot, a fresh start so to speak. The studio sessions were great and we all feel that we have done something truly amazing.
“We hope you’ll enjoy it. Ugh!”
The progressive black avantgardists completed the recording of their 14th full-length masterpiece in the renowned Fascination Street Studios. Jens Bogren mixed and mastered the new record.
