Formed in Bergen, Norway, in 1991, ENSLAVED followed their own singular path from the very start. As they emerged from the nascent Norwegian Black Metal scene of the early ‘90s, guitarist Ivar Bjornson and vocalist/bassist Grutle Kjellson exhibited a uniquely eccentric approach to making extreme music. Adventurous and progressive where many of their peers were insular and restrained, Enslaved’s reputation grew rapidly in the wake of extraordinary, epic albums like their debut “Vikingligr Veldi” and its strident follow-up “Frost” both released in 1994. By the late ‘90s, the band had morphed into a much more ingenious and ground-breaking beast: always retaining that essential link to their extremist roots but fearless in their pursuit of new ways to express their wildest ideas. In 2019, ENSLAVED will head towards KALTENBACH OPEN AIR for an exclusive show in Austria.
