Bald wird das aktuelle ENSLAVED Werk „Heimdal“ ein Jahr alt und dazu kündigt die Band eine Deluxe Edition an und veröffentlicht den neuen Song ‚Gangandi‘ als Appetithappen. Die Scheibe wird das komplette Studioalbum sowie den Bonustrack ‚Gangandi‘, alternative Versionen der beiden Tracks ‚Congelia‘ und ‚Forest Dweller‘, beide mit dem Cellisten Jo Quail und die gesamte ‚The Otherworldly Big Band Experience‘ Konzertfilm enthalten.

Sänger/Bassist Grutle Kjellson kommentiert:

„‚Gangandi‘ was the last song we made before the recording sessions for ‘Heimdal’ took place. I remember Ivar driving down to my place from Bergen on a Friday night to play a demo for a new song for me, and I went like, „Daaaaamn, this is something else! I absolutely loved it, but at the same time, I sensed that it was a little bit to the left of the rest of the material. When I started to figure out what to sing over it, I ended up writing a poem in cross rhyme in archaic western Norwegian, which even separated the whole effort even further away from the rest of the material. So, ultimately, we ended up not including it on the album, other than as a bonus track on the most “exclusive” and limited vinyl versions. That said, that doesn’t mean that we don’t enjoy the song! Quite the contrary! We love this odd little hybrid of folk rock, early Mayhem and King Crimson! It just ended up being the weird cousin of the rest of the songs. Kind of like Enslaved itself as a matter of fact.“
