Enslaved
ISA (Candlelight Records)

By: Mike SOS

Enslaved's rise to extreme metal's prominence culminates with the Norwegian outfit's latest album, the 10-track ISA. Not being a band to rest of past glories, songs the title track demonstrates the outfit's knack for molding a rich musical landscape where tumultuous noise and elaborate melodies cohesively intertwine, while the old school sonic outpouring on songs like "Bounded by Allegiance" is the dynamically charged dramatic equivalent of Opeth meets Satyricon. Enslaved's lush textures and ferocious undercurrent propel ISA to the top of the must listen to pile for any black metal fan yearning for more.
