Recorded at Grieghallen Studios (Mayhem, Emperor), Isa is the new album from two-time Norwegian Grammy and Alarm Award nominated Enslaved. Terrorizer Magazine gave the album high nods as "Album of the Month" for their November issue, noting "for an album that resonates so deeply, whatever destination Isa is headed for, surely the status of a ‘classic’ is high on the list of possibilities."
Based in Bergen, Enslaved has given Norwegian extreme metal a unique diversity since their formation in 1991. Their respected ability to twist various genre-specific elements of musical expression into a wholely new direction has been called both dynamic and challenging. Online music resource Rock Detector calls the band, “one of the foremost exponants of Viking Metal.”
Enslaved's first commercially available product was released in 1992 as a split with country-men Emperor. It was followed by a split recording with Satyricon. Tours would keep the band busy while multiple recordings would find the band a growing and loyal following. The Peter Tagtgren-produced Blodhemn would further see commercial expansion as the band’s participation on Europe’s massive metal package - featuring Morbid Angel, The Crown, Behemoth, and Dying Fetus would exponentially increase their profile. The band made their US live debut in 2003, a two-week showcase tour that included a stop at the Milwaukee Metal Fest. With the U.S. release of Isa and a world tour planned in support, set to kick off early 2005 with labelmates Vreid in support and expected to hit the U.S. this fall, Enslaved's growth and worldwide acclaim is expected to continue.
