Blackened avant-gardists ENSLAVED have launched into their30th year with thunder and flames. Although their Utgard European Tour will now take place in spring 2022, with support coming from INTRONAUT, OBSIDIAN KINGDOM and CROWN, the band has announced four new live albums/DVDs. Out June 25th, the audio and visuals for these releases have been taken from their revered Cinematic Tour 2020,with physical pre-orders launching today.
Ivar Bjørnson commented: “We are so stoked about how these Cinematic Tour releases turned out; the sound is great and the packaging is beautiful and unique like the shows themselves. The crown jewel for old vinyl collectors like ourselves has got to be the wooden box — handmade, numbered and named individually. That is simply… metal!”
