“This is the story that wanted to be told, and this is music that demanded to be heard. Who are we to question that? After ‘Utgard’, the path ahead cleared itself — and we followed; past, present and future melted together in an EP that marks one giant leap for us. Into…”

Hellfest organizers commented:

“Hellbangers,

What can we say except that we are proud (and excited) to finally unveil the long-awaited line up of our anniversary edition! Keeping such a line up as a secret for several weeks has been no easy task, especially in the last few days…

It’s been more than 16 months since our work rhythm was turned upside down by the arrival of this virus, since the live music industry was extinguished. Despite this, our confidence has never been affected and we have kept working with a positive mindset.

The frustration of two years without a festival has led us to dream even bigger about our reunion! In 2022, we are offering a new and unique format spread over 10 days! Never done before, this formula will, without a doubt, remain in the history of so-called “extreme” music! Twice as historic, because this formula is meant to exist only in 2022 and will not happen again in the years to come.

After a first weekend from 17 to 19th June 2022, we double the fun with an additional weekend from 23rd to 26th June! A real marathon that will see no less than 350 artists on 6 stages!

As usual, the festival does not deviate from its principles: you will see artists capable of performing in stadiums, with artists who are usually playing in smaller venues, and for some even in pub caves. Punk, Heavy, Black, Hardcore, Death, Stoner, Pagan, Power, we have done our best to put together what we believe to be the “edition of the century”.

No need to list the program in detail as you are not, and for the second year, headbanging at the festival right now. You can find out all this by yourself, at home or with your friends, enjoying our virtual edition “Hellfest From Home“! (More information over here : fromhome.hellfest.fr)

This exceptional edition is also an opportunity for us to thank the pass holders who have been waiting for more than 2 years. Your loyalty and trust have kept us going and we do not have enough words to thank you. It seemed fair to us that you should access the ticket sale 24 hours before the public sale in order for you to obtain your ticket for sure.

We are aware that some of you, for professional, family or simply financial reasons, will not be able to attend this XXL edition. By going through (and only through!) our partner TICKETSWAP (please stop Viagogo and others…), you will be able to resell your pass for the weekend you are the least interested in, and thus make one more happy fan!

For all the others who will have the chance to live these 10 days of anthology with us, we promise that you will remember our reunion! As a bonus, we might even make you a nice “FINISHER” t-shirt so that this moment will remain engraved forever in your memories. Once in a lifetime celebration!

Last but not least, we could not finish without thanking all those who have supported us during these last months. Volunteers, intermittents, sponsors, service providers, media partners, people from Clisson, we are all eager to see you again and to live with you this future adventure, which promises to be historic!

Stay Strong. Stay Safe.

Enslaved Premiere “Sacred Horse” Live Video

Enslaved have premiered a new live video for their song “Sacred Horse.“ The clip was filmed during the band’s “The Rise Of Ymir (Verftet Online Festival 2020)” virtual set.

Grutle Kjellson commented:

“‘Sacred Horse‘ is probably one of our proudest moments in our now three-decade long career, and that song pretty much sums up what Enslaved is all about; energy. A very aggressive song, yet also dynamic and mellow. Besides, it’s always a delightful experience to perform it on stage and to see how our audience absorbs it and enjoys it.

We’ve even seen people crying at the front row while playing this song, and of course beholding our fans unleashing such emotions, really lifts the whole experience to a pretty much divine level! Obviously, performing it without an audience at an online show wasn’t an easy task, but the memories of our previous endeavors playing it alongside our fans, got us through. Thanks for watching!”

As previously reported, Enslaved will be releasing four new live sets from their 2020 virtual tour on June 25. Those live albums/films include: “The Rise Of Ymir” (‘Verftet Online Festival‘ 2020), “Chronicles Of The Northbound” (Cinematic Tour 2020), “Below The Lights” (Cinematic Tour 2020), and “Utgard – The Journey Within” (Cinematic Tour 2020).

Enslaved Premiere “Fenris” Live Video

Enslaved have premiered a new live video for their song “Fenris.“ The clip was filmed during the band’s “Chronicles Of The Northbound (Cinematic Tour 2020)” virtual set.

Grutle Kjellson commented:

“‘Fenris‘ was perhaps the first song we wrote that got a massive encore demand, and before we actually had a lot of songs to pick from, we even played it twice during a set… haha. So, since all the songs on the ‘Chronicles of the Northbound‘ set was handpicked and voted for by our fans, it wasn’t a big shock that the grand old wolf was among the chosen ones.

‘Fenris‘ has been present on many of our setlists for pretty close to 30 years now, and it is still a great song for both ourselves to perform and for the audience to absorb. It’s a very energetic song, and its lyrical concept deals with letting the energy flow naturally without trying to enslave (bish!) it. The consequences can be fatal if you keep the wolf in captivity for too long. Let loose your inner wolf, the inevitable tide, and enjoy!”

As previously reported, Enslaved will be releasing four new live sets from their 2020 virtual tour on June 25. Those live albums/films include: “The Rise Of Ymir” (‘Verftet Online Festival‘ 2020), “Chronicles Of The Northbound” (Cinematic Tour 2020), “Below The Lights” (Cinematic Tour 2020), and “Utgard – The Journey Within” (Cinematic Tour 2020).

Enslaved Premiere “The Crossing” Live Video

Enslaved have premiered a new live video for their song “The Crossing.“ The clip was filmed during a 2020 virtual show at USF Verftet in Bergen, Norway.

Grutle Kjellson commented:

“The online performance of ‘Below The Lights‘ was indeed a trip. There has been a huge demand for us to perform that album for some years now. Ironically, because there was very little buzz around it in the days of its initial release back in 2003. I guess we fell into the good ol’ pit in-between the chairs back then, and we got pretty puzzled when people started to shout out for those songs 10 years later!

Anyway, we are psyched and proud to present to you a special performance of the whole album, also including a sixth member, Inge Rypdal! Rypdal is a long time friend of the band and has been collaborating with Enslaved on several occasions over the years, including a stunning performance on the recordings of ‘Below The Lights‘, adding a beautiful contribution on ‘A Darker Place‘.

Here’s a little sneak peak! Enjoy ‘The Crossing‘ and have a heavy weekend.”

As previously reported, Enslaved will be releasing four new live sets from their 2020 virtual tour on June 25. Those live albums/films include: “The Rise Of Ymir” (‘Verftet Online Festival‘ 2020), “Chronicles Of The Northbound” (Cinematic Tour 2020), “Below The Lights” (Cinematic Tour 2020), and “Utgard – The Journey Within” (Cinematic Tour 2020).

Enslaved Announce Four New Live Releases

Enslaved have announced four new live releases featuring shows from their 2020 virtual tour. The following sets will be available as live albums/films on June 25: “The Rise Of Ymir” (‘Verftet Online Festival‘ 2020), “Chronicles Of The Northbound” (Cinematic Tour 2020), “Below The Lights” (Cinematic Tour 2020), and “Utgard – The Journey Within” (Cinematic Tour 2020). Ivar Bjørnson commented:

“We are so stoked about how these Cinematic Tour releases turned out; the sound is great and the packaging is beautiful and unique like the shows themselves. The crown jewel for old vinyl collectors like ourselves has got to be the wooden box – handmade, numbered and named individually. That is simply… metal!”
