Enslaved - Set To Release New Vinyl EP

Soulseller Records is loudly presenting an exclusive and limited 7 inch EP vinyl by the legendary Enslaved, due in late August/early September.

The mythological universe of Enslaved is full of references to the timeless concepts of ones word and the strength of bonds. About a decade ago, a pact between Enslaved and Soulseller Records were made to do a strictly limited 7 inch release with exclusive Enslaved material. The whole agreement was based on both parties love for vinyl and the old ways of the Extreme Metal scene. Well, shortly after the pact was made, Enslaved's career accelerated a lot, and the Enslaved/Soulseller deal kept having to wait for the next recording, promo trip or tour. Well, finally it was realized that things were never going to slow down (which is good news!), and that the time was right to do it! That Enslaved's present record label Indie Recordings respected the agreement without hesitation only adds to the air of genuine musical and artistic values that surrounds this release.

The result is the 7 inch vinyl enitled Thorn; consisting of the songs "Disintegrator" and "Striker", pressed in a strictly limited number of 1000 copies. The songs are eerie and atmospheric, with nods both back towards Enslaved's edgier-monotonous past and dark-psychedelic present.

The 7 inch is produced by Enslaved's own Ivar Bjørnson and Iver Sandøy (who the band has worked with since last years Axioma Ethica Odini).

(Also thanks to thorsdottir for sending this in!)

I don't know, but this band is releasing new stuff very quickly. They are amazing, but so many releases in a row never spoke good about a metal band.
