Enslaved is gearing up to announce their new record, or so it seems. The band has taken to Instagram to post begin teasing the new record with a little insight from guitarist and vocalist Arve "Icedale" Isdal, who calls the record "best album to date and also the best sounding one."
It's also very important to note that the new stuff was recorded after eating pizza at bassist and vocalist Grutle Kjellson's house. No word on how that's affected the music just yet.
"I had a great time recording our upcoming new album! It's such a powerful album and it just kept growing during the production as we tested out more and more crazy ideas and they all turned out great! At the end we brought a mobile studio with us to Grutle's house where we made pizza and recorded some really interesting stuff during the evening and night.
"It is a very complex album and has so many musical layers and mix of genres that it might need a few spins to suck it all in. I'm proud to say it's our best album to date and also the best sounding one. Can't wait to share more news soon and for you all to eventually hear it!"
In the meantime, check out Enslaved's latest single "Kingdom" below. "'Kingdom' – a tribute to the endurance of ideas and the people that carry them forward through hardship and fatigue, for the benefit of us all," said Ivar Bjørnson of the single at the time. "Musically, it is a tribute to the Riff and the Rite: to the Teutonic Thrash kings, to Space Rock, to the Ambient pioneers of the 70s. With this we ask you to join us on this coming trek. Thanks for listening!"
