Posted by on August 28, 2020


Enslaved are gearing up for their new album, Utgard, due on October 2nd via Nuclear Blast. Today (28th), the group shared the third single, “Urjotun.”


Grutle Kjellson comments:

 “The lyrical idea for ‘Urjotun’ had been spinning around in the chaos in the back of my head for quite a while, when Ivar sent me the riff-demo last autumn. I knew instantly that this was it, the very soundtrack of the rise of the primeval giant, the Urjotun! Our mutual love and fascination for that early Kraut rock scene and for bands like TANGERINE DREAM and KRAFTWERK finally fully ascended in an ENSLAVED song, almost 30 years after we picked up those legendary Kraut albums. It’s funny, that in Germany they referred to this kind of music as ‘Kosmische Musik,’ cosmic music! And that is exactly what this song is about; cosmic chaos. On top of this, director David Hall made a perfect projection and visualization of our troubled minds.”
