Another fine album,
This review is from: Acioma Ethica Odini (Audio CD)
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).
