Enslaved Re-Sign With Nuclear Blast, Premiere “What Else Is There?” Video

Enslaved have re-signed with Nuclear Blast Records. With this news, the band have also premiered a new video for their cover of Röyskopp‘s “What Else Is There?“.

Ivar Bjornson said the following about re-signing with Nuclear Blast:

“It is with great pleasure we re-sign our record deal with Nuclear Blast worldwide! We have been working together for more or less a decade, and it has been an individed positive experience. They have both the heart to grasp our musical visions, and the business-muscles to spread them out into the world. When you add personal friendships with the wonderful people in America, U.K. and Germany it is simply an ideal situation for us to be in. Onwards, forwards and in all directions!”

Enslaved To Reissue “Hordanes Land”

Enslaved will be reissuing “Hordanes Land” digitally and on CD digipack on March 2, and on black, swamp green (limited to 333), and white (limited to 666) vinyl on April 20. The effort has been remastered by Iver Sandøy, and it will feature a reassembled layout done by Marcelo Vasco. The digipack will come with a 20 page booklet full of unpublished pictures and more. All formats will also come with the bonus track “Enslaved,” and new liner notes and interviews from Fenriz (Darkthrone), Sakis Tolis (Rotting Christ), Lee Barret (Candlelight), Hrymr (Helheim), etc.

The band commented:

“Hi to all! We’re really happy to announce today the re-issue of our historical album “Hordanes Land” on ByNorse Music, which is Ivar’s own label as many of you know! The CD and digital will be released on March 2nd and the LPs on April 20th.

We are really proud to have fellow musicians such as Faust, Fenriz or Silenoz adding liner notes and even interviews to our release. We gathered this in a beautiful CD digipack with 20-pages booklet that also includes unpublished pictures and other cool stuff. On top of that, we included on all formats the bonus track ‘Enslaved’, which many of you probably know already, from back in the day! Collectors as we are, we made 333 copies of a limited swamp green LP and 666 copies of a limited white LP. These limited editions all come with embossed logo and title on the cover. We’re super stocked on this, they look really cool! The reassembled layout was respectfully done by Marcelo Vasco Arts, thanks again for the amazing work!

We also worked hard to preserve the character of the classic release. We have decided to have Iver Sandøy re-master “Hordanes Land” because of the great job he did with “Vikingligr Veldi” finally being released on vinyl in 2016 (also on ByNorse Music). His philosophy is not so much to remake anything with the remaster; but to emphasize and highlight the strengths of the original mastering. The original album is a milestone and a document from a historical moment in modern Metal, so the spirit and atmosphere needs preservation – not alteration.

We hope you like what you see and read!”
