Enslaved – Axioma Ethica Odini by Alan Chapman

Indie Recordings (EU) | Nuclear Blast (US)

From the opening 30 seconds of this album I was hooked, there is so much that makes this a class enough outing, that any band would be proud.

Enslaved have come a long way from their Black Metal roots becoming a class Prog Metal outfit, one thing that makes them special is their understanding of melody and drama using it to offset the heads down speed, making each song a roller coaster ride.

It’s good to keep finding albums such as this that defy the quick fix culture of instance gratification, as I said at the beginning it will take 30 seconds to be hooked but this will keep you hooked until the end with no fillers.
