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!”
