The lyric video for an edited version of the track ‘Thurisaz Dreaming’, taken from the upcoming masterpiece “In Times” by Norwegian progressive extreme metal band Enslaved, is being premiered now by Metal Hammer at http://smarturl.it/ThurisazDreaming.
Ivar Bjørnson states:
“Finally, the first song from the album is released upon the world! This great lyric video is certainly a good way to present the song and the album. ‘Thurisaz Dreaming’ was the first song to be written for the album, and kept the place as the natural opener for the album all the way throughout the entire making of the album. It leaps out of the speaker and grabs you by the throat – it’s a song that makes you take a stand right there during the first seconds of the album: are you up for the journey?! Of course you are!“
The main recording session for “In Times” took place at Duper Studios to Solslottet Studio in Bergen, Norway with additional recordings sessions at Conclave & Earshot Studios (presided over by Enslaved members Larsen and Ice Dale), and Ivar Bjørnson’s Peersonal Sound Studios. Additional experimentation and sonic exploration was conducted deep in the woods of Valevåg south of Bergen where a mobile studio recorded additional sounds.
In Times was produced by band members Ivar Bjørnson, Grutle Kjellson & Herbrand Larsen together with Iver Sandøy.
Mixing was completed by Jens Bogren at Fascination Street Studios in Örebro, Sweden.
The new album will be released on March 06, 2015 via Nuclear Blast!
