The progressive black metal Viking gods Enslaved have returned! They stand on the brink of releasing their 13th, full-length studio album, "In Times". More specifically, "In Times" will be released on March 6th (EU), 9th (UK) and 10th (NA + RoW) via Nuclear Blast Records.

But, as it stands, you won't have to wait another day to appreciate this monster of an album. The entirety of "In Times" is now live and streaming through the Nuclear Blast Records YouTube channel! Take a gander below and accept your fate of listening to greatness \m/

Also, Hear what the guitarist/composer Ivar Bjørnson has to say about the album:

“I was so deep into the songs and ideas for such a long time (or have my head so far up my own a**, if you prefer more direct language) that it is hard to have any ‘opinions’ about them that is anything else than the high-flying mumbo-jumbo of the introvert song-smith. The songs are extensions of my inner and outer life, the thoughts I am aware of having, as well as those that lie too deep to register in everyday consciousness. The songs are the resounds of grandiose altered states and mundane tiny micro-events. In addition, they are, of course, also the result of inspiration from other music and art. I do think this new album is the most consistent body of work we have so far: It incorporates our ‘blacker’ past with our influences from prog rock, our present sense of absolute freedom, and the joy of being in this band, if that makes any sense… Ha, ha, ha. It is higher in energy, more aggressive, yet more beautiful and subtle. It simply sounds inspired.”
