Ivar Bjørnson, Enslaved’s songwriter and guitarist comments:

"I am stoked that we are going out with Opeth. We have been admirers of Opeth's work for years, specially the direction of their newer works. This is great news for us to take back to our loyal fans and friends in North America at this point; the reception for our newest album 'Vertebrae' has been fantastic and unforgettable. We can't wait to present the songs live; we promise you won't be let down! Finally, we wish to express our sincere gratitude to Opeth for giving us this opportunity."

Alot of Opeth fans who have never heard or heard of Enslaved are in for a treat. Enslaved's last few albums have definitely taken a page or two from the Opeth play book, s'good stuff.

I 'm considering making the trek to Columbus for the May 23 show since I'm heading to Cinci that week anyway....my gf's sister even lives there...it could happen.

By total luck of the draw...
Now Playing: Enslaved - "Neogenesis"
