By Norse Music reissue Enslaved's debut EP “Hordanes Land” plus a bonus track as a full-length release! First released in 1993 as a mini 12” LP, “Hordanes Land” was also released a few weeks later as a split CD album with Emperor and is considered a key release in the development of Viking metal.
The By Norse Music re-issue features exclusive liner notes and quotes by major figures of the Black metal scene such as Fenriz (Darkthrone), Sakis Tolis (Rotting Christ), Lee Barret (Candlelight) and Hrymr (Helheim) among others, the original songs entirely remastered by Iver Sandøy at Solslottet Studio (Bergen, Norway) and the bonus track “Enslaved”, from the Enslaved split with Satyricon “Yggdrasill”, released in 1992.
300 beer with black marble vinyl 180g in a black poly-lined innerbag, gatefold, full-color, black flood inside on 350g with gloss lamination, all assembled in a PVC overbag.
An album full of revelatory moments, spine-tingling dynamics and exquisite but alien atmospheres, »E« showcases a refreshed ENSLAVED line-up via songs that take the band into unprecedented territory. From the grandiose, weather-beaten riff-scapes of 11-minute opener ‘Storm Son’ to the wild, psychedelic frontier squall of ‘Sacred Horse’ and the muscular, sax-powered shoegaze barrage of monstrous closer ‘Hiindsiight’, it is both a typically bold and fearless statement from this most inventive of modern metal bands and a thrilling sideways step that harnesses the spirit of old and sets it loose in a whirlwind of imagination. Conceptually, too, ENSLAVED are making giant forward strides. While past albums frequently focused on notions of individuality and isolation, E offers a transformative fresh perspective.
300 x A-Side/B-Side - silver/sea blue, 2x12" (180g) in black poly-lined innerbag, gatefold, full-color on 350g with hot foil stamping, all assembly in a PVC overbag.
This album defined viking metal.
Enslaved and By Norse Music present “Tón Leiðsla I - Hordanes Land”: a very limited edition of the all-times classic as a picture disc, including exclusive content! Strictly limited to 500 copies. “Tón Leiðsla I - Hordanes Land” is the first opus in an exclusive By Norse Music series that celebrates the label’s most iconic releases. The series title “Tón Leiðsla” is a construct that means “a graphic representation of a musical vision” and depicts the creative collaboration between the artists and By Norse Music at the core of these editions. Each opus in the “Tón Leiðsla“ series features an illustration by Bergen-based artist Jannicke Wiese-Hansen and a unique poem created or commissioned by the artists. The “Hordanes Land” poem was written by Ivar Bjørnson and evokes the cross-over between History, Tolkien-influence and Norse mythology that was behind this iconic mini-album. The layout of the series was created by renowned artist Marcelo Vasco (Kreator, Slayer, etc.). First released in 1993 as a mini 12” LP, “Hordanes Land” was also released a few weeks later as a split CD album with Emperor and is considered a key release in the development of Viking metal. The original songs were entirely remastered by Iver Sandøy at Solslottet Studio (Bergen, Norway) and the bonus track “Enslaved”, first released in 1992. 1. Slaget i skogen bortenfor (Epilog / Slaget)
