From Viking-tinged black metal band to progressive super-heavyweights, Enslaved have constantly evolved with each release. RIITIIR continues the path of progression as it tackles the near-impossible task of following on from their 2010 masterpiece.

I'm not a Black Metal fan but this is just perfect. Really well balanced


If you really think that, you are gonna adore Axioma Ethica Odini.

I know people love it but for some reason i had never listen to it. I will check it

Rating: 9 I'm slightly surprised this one and Vertebrae seem to have a bit of a downer reputation on here - I mean they're not quite as good as AEO, Isa and Below The Lights, but I think both albums are still pretty strong. This one does seem to be one of their more melodic albums, and I think it works well, so maybe that's why I like it more than some others do
