Interview

Enslaved Frontman Grutle Kjellson On New Members And Vikings

Few bands from the Norwegian black metal scene transform themselves into a more complex entity. Emperor would of course be one example but it doesn't get any more progressive, complex and introspective than Enslaved. Since the band's debut, "Vikingligr Veldi," the band has evolved constantly and become one of the most revered Norwegian metal bands performing to this day.

At their recent show in Bristol, England with High On Fire (see interview here,) I had the pleasure of sitting down with frontman Grutle Kjellson to discuss their latest album, "E," the recruitment of new keyboardist Håkon Vinje, when we can expect new material and how he sees modern depictions of Vikings in movies and TV shows like "Valhalla Rising" and "Vikings." You can listen to the interview in full below.
