Enslaved enter the studio to record new album - due out in May 2020

Norwegian metal avant-gardists Enslaved have some big news for their fans: the band have just entered the studio and are currently working on new material for their upcoming album. This new gem will be released once again via Nuclear Blast Records and has a tentative release date of May 2020.

Band founding member and guitarist Ivar Bjørnson stated about the recordings:

Enslaved re-sign with Nuclear Blast and release music video for “What Else is There?”

There is ample reason to celebrate: Enslaved have once again joined forces with Nuclear Blast, to spread the music of the Norwegian avant-garde metallers all around the globe. With that, band and label renew a collaboration that has been ongoing for around ten years and two years ago produced the universally lauded album “E”.

Band founding member and guitarist Ivar Bjornson stated about the re-signing:

Amon Amarth premiere historically accurate music video for “Shield Wall”

Heavy metal overlords Amon Amarth have released a brand new video for their stomping, anthemic call to arms “Shield Wall”. The rabble-rousing new video chronicles the plight of an enemy ship come to invade a Viking village. But, as frontman Johan Hegg’s gutteral growl chants “Vikings, Raise The Shield Wall, Hold The Front Line, Fight Til Death”, the fate of the enemy becomes uncertain. Who will emerge victorious from battle? Watch the video below.
