Bjørnson said he's extremely excited to curate and play the festival, and in his statement also alluded to a new Enslaved album coming in 2020 possibly titled On Wings Over Utgard.

"It is a massive honor to be asked to be the first guest curator for the Fire in the Mountains festival. I have decided to name my curator showcase "On Wings Over Utgard"; inspired by the thematics from the coming Enslaved-album. Modern man is a being that has forgotten how chaos, darkness and decay are as important and beautiful parts of existence as all the bliss, youth and light we over-feed ourselves in the (dis-)Information Age. What better scenic metaphor to realize this part of the overall vision than at Fire in the Mountains; surrounded by wild, chaotic nature. Where life is how it was meant to be; uncontrolled, balanced and unified. I cannot wait to start showing you all the artists I am inviting to sonically and lyrically illustrate all this!"

Fire In The Mountains will be held on July 11 and 12 at the Heart Six Ranch in Moran, WY.
