Enslaved Flashes Sweet Sideboob via New Album Trailer
Enslaved makes high-level music that sets up fans to forever expect a lot. Once a listener feels a swell in the chest caused by powerful Enslaved-type jams, then that task is added to the job description of every future record, too. And not only must those next albums also move listeners in the soul n junk, but they are expected to do so in a new way. That’s tough!
But it’s not all bad for a super band — if they even notice our expectations — for the flip side is that Enslaved has our attention. Their power and the will to sustain it is the reason that we’d watch a “trailer” (below) for their upcoming album In Times (out in a month and a half, sigh) breathlessly and with intense focus. In it must lie some clue to the album’s place on the Enslaved spectrum of awesomeness, and the means to adjust our levels of excitement about it. The trailer’s song clips — clips of one song — point to “fuck yes this will rule!” via BM croaks over luscious Piggy-psyche riffs and big balls solos. Crank it!
Enslaved’s In Times is out March 10 via Nuclear Blast. Pre-order here.
