Additional info

Starting with where their most recent left off, the Sheep-stealers from Enslaved make a 90 degree turn and cut through prog country before ending up in Viking land. Not Amon Amarth viking land, but as close an approximation to Ye Olde Viking Music as one might expect.

Best of all, it's apparently free thanks to, uh, a car company which spits out cars which look like bricks. Pretty cool stuff... the music. And maybe the car company... when they come out with the V-Box, complete with horns, shield hubcaps, and axe-rack on the back, i'll be interested.

Ow, they changed it, but you can still get it by changing the link.

Guess they didn't want to give away the EP just now.

What's that shit with having to provide an email to download? There's no 'learn more' link and the only way to get the songs seems to be to give them your email. I'll try that with 10-minute-mail tomorrow. Or just torrent the thing. This would be way more exciting without the pretentious crap.

Just change the number and the name in the url on the download page to get the rest of the songs.

I'm listening to it right now and so far it sounds great.

Hm, 10-minute mail worked. Quite a lot of effort to download four songs though. Why they didn't just zip all of it and posted it on their website is still beyond me.

I am just so confused as to why Toyota Motor Company has their own record label under Scion.

Apparently this EP came together from start to finish in about two weeks. the opportunity presented itself, near-20 year old unused riffs in some cases were used to create songs, studio, and poof, up on the internets.

staggering to think something this diverse and awesome came together so quickly.
