Enslaved Signs Worldwide Deal With Nuclear Blast Records, New LP In Works

Legendary Norwegian progressive black/viking metal band Enslaved have inked a worldwide contract with Nuclear Blast Records. The band's 2008 release "Vertebrae" and 2010 release "Axioma Ethica Odini" were previously released in North America via the label, while in Europe the releases came via Indie Recordings. The band is expected to have a new release this fall.

Enslaved commented on the signing:

We’re very, very (yes, very) pleased and proud to sign this deal with Nuclear Blast worldwide. We’ve already worked with Nuclear Blast US through our two latest albums; and our personal friendships with NB guys and gals on both sides of the Atlantic are even older. There’s no drama – we take great pride in the fact that there seldom is with us – it is simply a matter of one contract ending, and us going for what seems to be our best option at this point in time and space. This time the best choice for Enslaved is changing things up somewhat. We’re excited to see what the mixture of passion and professionalism at Nuclear Blast can do with the Enslaved name in the years to come. There is no doubt that the level of ambition, the experience and seriousness about what we do, form perfect common ground for Enslaved and Nuclear Blast. We’re in the process of making a new album that will initiate our new partnership, watch out for the approaching wave of news about that. For now, let’s just say that the album will be an absolute (Nuclear) blast!

Gerardo Martínez of Nuclear Blast USA, commented:

Enslaved is one of the most amazing bands to ever come from Norway. We’ve had the pleasure of working with them on their last two albums in North America, and from this day forth worldwide. Looking forward their new masterpiece to be unleashed to the masses later in the year!
