Enslaved

by

On this rare headlining tour, Norwegian metal crew Enslaved are celebrating their 20th anniversary and a career in which they’ve gone from playing black metal with folk and Viking themes to psychedelic extreme metal to unabashed prog. Their last record, 2010’s chaotic-sounding Axioma Ethica Odini, was an even-keeled blend of black metal and some of that prog and it even won them the Norwegian equivalent to a Grammy. Better than their recorded output, though—and best enjoyed with a flagon of mead—Enslaved’s Norse black metal is best experienced live. With Alcest, Junius, and Fin’amor
