Enslaved Releases Lyric Video For New Track

A lyric video for the new track "One Thousand Years of Rain" is available from Enslaved in the player below. In our own review for the upcoming new album "In Times" (check it out here), xFiruath states of the song: "'One Thousand Years Of Rain'...kicks off with a faster pace and offers up some of that stunning 'RIITIIR' vibe of harsh/fast blended with clean/melodic. The track throws a curve ball five minutes in, slowing down and unexpectedly throwing in Viking gang chants."

"In Times" is set for release on March 6th (EU), March 9th (UK) and March 10th (North America) via Nuclear Blast Records.

The track list is:

1. Thurisaz Dreaming (see music video here)
