After the outstanding achievement of their 2008 album 'Vertebrae', Norway's finest Progressive Viking Black Metal overlords Enslaved released their eagerly anticipated eleventh album in September of 2010. The intriguingly suggestive title is a vague stitching of ideas from the Latin word 'Axiom' (vaguely meaning an 'unquestionable truth against proven scientific fact') with Ethica Odini (taken from an Old Norse poem entitled Hávamál) which bluntly translates as 'The Ethics of Odin' (the Norse God). Together, the title forms a loosely translated understanding - The principal truth behind the ethics of Odin. Stripped to the bones and broken down to its underlying essence, it can be interpreted (at a very base level) as 'the fundamental spiritual belief that stands against modern day scientific fact'. It's a title and album concept for those that choose to believe in something more than the clinically barbaric nature of modern science.

As is with the very core of Enslaved's nature, the band has once again evolved with their ever progressive and intelligently ambitious sound. Axioma Ethica Odini carves out a deeper directional route for the band; merging together and mapping out a vast array of layers and musical ideas to form this unquestionably intriguing and inspired album. What instantly sits forward from the music is how effortlessly this all seems to sit together. On a song by song basis, the rigidly cut structures of the music somehow lies in harmony with each segmental piece. As diverse as the many progressive elements to each track are, the production and undeniably involved thought process that has gone into their formation, has brought out some of the most enchanting and engaging progressive black metal that can be conceived.

In short this is my first and so far only foray into Enslaved's music; and I like it. I can't remember where or when I decided to "give it a go" but I did and don't regret it. I find it satisfying to finally understand what can be initially challenging or incomprehensible music of any genre (jazz, classical etc) and on first listen Enslaved certainly fall into both of those descriptions.

Having read many Enslaved-reviews none really describe the music other than the reviewers like/dislike for the latest release so I will try and give the inquisitive a clue.

I find the many labels of the Heavy Metal sub-genre culture pretty unhelpful and I have seen Enslaved described as being part of the Black, Death, Viking, Progressive and/or Norwegian Metal "movement/s" at any one time. Quite frankly I don't know; and what does a label mean anyway? Except in a 'short hand' description and I am pretty sure Enslaved would probably feel they straddle more than one narrow musical area, if not define an area of their own. Let's just say - on the evidence of this album - that they fit in the wider area of Heavy Metal, on the extreme edges. If you are offended by anything louder than Bon Jovi; think Metallica should be shot and have never heard of Sepultura...this is probably not for you. For your own health click-away now!

I would guess that atmospherics and song structure are most important to Enslaved and while they are a guitar centric band, their music is not dominated by the `riffer-rama' and shredding of other metal bands.

A particular approach they favour is the "Lets start-off with white noise...and then go into something more considered and melodic".

Enslaved are back again with their eleventh album.Eleven albums since 1994,they just don't sleep.For me they get better and better.The first track is one of their best,a masterful fusion of blackprog that makes you feel like the universe is pulling you through time and space and the rest is just as good.
More clean vocals are present which I say is a good thing as I grow weary of purely raspy singing.Clean vocals just give more emotional and multidimensional power than rasps although the rasp that are there provide a link to the more earthy roots of the band.
Like the band say to their detractors that expect them to sound like they did fifteen years ago,it's more true to sound like they do now than young bands copying the style of 1991 and old bands plying the same old same old.
Enslaved encompass mythology,power,noise,melody and an indefinable cosmic yearning,a veteran band that still has more life than most other bands in any genre (although Killing Joke are still the gods).

During the run up to the release of a new album by Enslaved, I become a little nervous. Will this be the one where they drop the ball? Will my level of expectation not be met this time? Well, time to breathe that sigh of relief. Luckily, Axioma Ethica Odini not only meets my expectations, it's left them smashed and broken. Thank the Norse Gods. It's simply stunning. Multi-layered, which like all Enslaved releases becomes ever more intriguing with each listen, it's a beast of a record. The introduction of more clean vocals from Herbrand Larsen is, for me, the icing on the cake. I love Isa, Ruun and Vertebrae with all my heart and are all classics, but this just feels like the album Enslaved were born to make. Picking out individual tracks is tempting but ultimately will do this a diservice, as like all great works of art it deserves your undivided attention from start to finish, and only really reveals its charms after living in it's company for a week or two. Now this is all well and good, but I now start the painful path to the next Enslaved album, and the possibility of disappointment, but on the strength of Axioma Ethica Odini, the Norwegian's are far from running out of ideas.
