Eld by Enslaved
Released: Jan 1997
Label: Osmose Productions
Descending from Valhalla with "793 (Slaget om Lindisfarne)," a 16-minute super-epic about a battle that happened before the year 800, Eld finds Norwegian band Enslaved continuing on the path toward Viking metal, despite the presence of prominent black metal elements: shimmering walls of guitar, high-speed tempos and exhaustive double-bass drumming. The schizoid shifts in style are hallmarks of a genre Enslaved essentially created themselves. The band's insistence on tossing in decidedly sideways keyboard parts where you least expect it just never gets old.
