Live version of “Sacred Horse” is taken from ENSLAVED upcoming Cinematic Tour 2020 recording: The Rise of Ymir (Verftet Online Festival 2020). Despite being locked down in space, ENSLAVED take us on a tour through time, with classic tracks and fan favourites resurrected and revitalised by a formidable and accomplished live performance.
This performance of “Sacred Horse” is taken from their upcoming live release Chronicles of the Northbound (Cinematic Tour 2020), which sees ENSLAVED fly through a career spanning entirely fan-voted set of favourites. It is one part of their four new live album/DVD Cinematic Tour 2020 collection due to be released on June 25th.
“‘Sacred Horse‘ is probably one of our proudest moments in our now three-decade long career, and that song pretty much sums up what ENSLAVED is all about; energy,” band comments. “A very aggressive song, yet also dynamic and mellow. Besides, it’s always a delightful experience to perform it on stage and to see how our audience absorbs it and enjoys it.
“We’ve even seen people crying at the front row while playing this song, and of course beholding our fans unleashing such emotions, really lifts the whole experience to a pretty much divine level! Obviously, performing it without an audience at an online show wasn’t an easy task, but the memories of our previous endeavours playing it alongside our fans, got us through. Thanks for watching!
