MORE NEW ENSLAVED MUSIC FOR FREE!
It’s damn hard to fault Scion for investing in the metal community unless you’re some kind of anti-corporate-AT-ALL-COSTS punk with a major chip on your shoulder and “DIY” tattooed inside your asshole. I mean, it’d be one thing if they were ramming shlock like Godsmack or Disturbed down our throats, but at least the folks have good taste; local shows and full-on festivals with amazing lineups (all band travel expenses paid for), new releases by Magrudergrind, Cannibal Corpse, and now Enslaved… at least the people have good taste. All that for the price of having to read the word “Scion” every now and again; sweet deal. (I happily drive a Honda, btw)
The latest car company-funded record, of course, is Enslaved’s The Sleeping Gods EP, which is available starting today for free download (you’ll have to d/l each of the EP’s four tracks separately instead of in one .zip; alas, they can’t always get everything right.) Yesterday Axl told you about the new song “Heimvegen,” streaming over at Metal Injection, and today Decibel’s got “Alu Misyrki,” a decidedly more old-school feeling track. Download the full Sleeping Gods EP here, entirely for free.
While you’re busy trolling our comments section over the legitimacy of a car company releasing a Norwegian black metal record, consider doing the same for our #22 Top Modern Metal Guitarist, Enslaved’s Ivar Bjørnson. We’d be most grateful.
