ENSLAVED - Mardraum (12" DOUBLE LP on Black Vinyl)
Norway | Progressive Black/Viking
At the epicenter of Norwegian Black Metal during its infancy, ENSLAVED are one of the shrinking handful of bands on this earth who, along with being founders of their craft, have remained an important, vital force within their musical realm. Having consistently furthered the dynamic structuring and overall quality of the genre for the past decade, their perfected meld of complex harshness and dark, epic beauty has unquestionably carved a permanent home for ENSLAVED among the true leaders of Black Metal. ...this is the latest offering of the Vikings, without any doubt at the front of the pagan black metal scene with their numerous touring and successful past releases, epic at its best.
