ENSLAVED haben die nächste neue Single `Forest Dweller´ samt Video von ihrer neuen, sechzehnten Studioscheibe “Heimdal”, die für den 03. März geplant ist, veröffentlicht. Der Song überzeugt mit Melodie, progressiver Pracht und ein wenig Härte. Die neue Platte enthält zudem eine Aufzeichnung der im vergangenen Jahr gespielten Streaming-Show „The Otherworldly Big Band Experience“ als Bonus-DVD.

ENSLAVED Sänger/Bassist Grutle Kjellson kommentiert den neuen Track:

“To me ‚Forest Dweller‘ was the most immediate song on the album, at least in its earliest form as an instrumental demo. I spent quite some time to get into some of the other songs of the album, but this one seemed somehow logical, well logical by Enslaved standards that is. I had an idea for a lyric, and Ivar’s amazing and diverse riffs on this one made it easy to pan out the scripture. I made a rough plan on what to sing over it, and we actually ended up using some parts of those recordings on the album! The song sort of showcases our representative samples of inspiration: Led Zep, Genesis, Destruction, Iron Maiden and David Bowie, to mention a schizophrenic tapestry of influences. It mirrors in the lyrics as well, which deals about both darkness and light in connection to the nature of Heimdal.”
