Biography of Band

TABU Recordings is proud to present the label’s new world wide signing:ENSLAVED

It’s with great pride we announce that two time Grammy Nominee ENSLAVED,has signed a recording contract with TABU Recordings. From their base camp in Bergen, ENSLAVED has given Norwegian extreme metal diversity and depth since 1991.

The pioneers in ENSLAVED have through strong musical craftsmanship shown a remarkable will and ability to continuingly twist their musical expression into new directions in a dynamic and challenging way.

The critically acclaimed Below The Lights (Osmose Productions) was honoured with nomination for both Grammy and the Independent Alarm Award in Norway. The band has strong traditions as a hardworking live band, and some of their performances are considered as legendary. KERRANG! salutes ENSLAVED’s Inferno performance with a KKKKK-review in their iss#1002.

Quote: «It’s Enslaved who steal the show with a gloriously ambitious set bolstered by a dizzying light show that has «should have been headliners» written all over it» (Dom Lawson).

Enslaved is currently working on confirming the recording schedule in Grieghallen Studios (last two Enslaved albums, Mayhem, Emperor) and the mix will be done subsequently in Duper Studios (last two Enslaved albums, Kaizers Orchestra, Jaga Jazzist) by Sir Duperman. The production team for the album will consist of the powertrio Jørgen «Sir Duperman» Træen, Eirik «Pytten» Hundvin and Enslaved. Prepare for armageddon.
