Enslaved Putting Finishing Touches On New Album

Norwegian extreme metallers ENSLAVED are putting the finishing touches on their new album, "Ruun", tentatively due on May 8 via Tabu. "The final mixes are being made at this very moment in Propeller Studio in Oslo," the group write on their web site. "The band produces the album themselves, with Mike Hartung as leader of the pack. Mastering will take place in Sweden immedeatly after the mix is finished. Later in February the band will make not one, but two videos from 'Ruun'."

Commented guitarist Arve Isdal: "We're very happy with the result, and the feedback from the few chosen ones who had a sneak listening has been awesome! The songs needs time to get into, but we hope you will take that time. Keep it up, loonies!"

According to a posting on ENSLAVED's web site, the band are "confirmed for more festivals. The guys especially looks foreward to play on the Øyafestivalen in Oslo, Norway the 8th or 10th of August. It's a big outdoor festival and one of the bigger events in Norway during the summer. Apart from that, this weekend the band will play two shows in Tromsø, Norway during the By:Larm festival and an exclusive unplugged session live on Norwegian radio. No amps, no drums, just pure acoustic music."

The recordings for the follow-up to the band's Norwegian Grammy- and Alarm award-winning album "Isa" (2004) began in early January at Amper Studio in Oslo, Norway. Songtitles set to appear on the CD include "Path of Vanir" and "Essence", both of which the band are planning on shooting videos for.

ENSLAVED will be teaming up with KHOLD and VREID for a European tour in the fall. More information will be made available soon.
