Enslaved at Terminal 5 (more by Greg Cristman)

Following the release of Magrundergrind's Crusher EP, Scion A/V is welcoming their latest release to the metal world, a brand new EP from Enslaved! The Sleeping Gods is another 30 minutes of progressive metal from the longstanding Norwegian crew, and will be the follow-up to 2011's Axioma Ethica Odini, which was a favorite among many last year. Download/stream a pair of new songs from that EP for the first time below, and look for that free downloadable five song EP later today (5/10)

Enslaved, who was profiled by Slayer Mag and will appear in the upcoming collection, have a few tour dates scheduled for the coming months though nothing in the US so far. The band recently toured the states with Dimmu Borgir, hitting Terminal 5 along the way.

All tour dates and those song streams are below.

Will check out later.

BTW, anyone else think their last full album wasn't as good as Vertebrae?

I hate how metal bands always demand applause.

"Ver is da clappink?!?! Have we not rocked yü?"

I too agree that the last album was not as good as Vertebrae.

this will rule, as does everything they've done. last album was different than 'Vertebrae' but not better or worse in my opinion.

That pose screams, "Let them eat hummus!"

Actually that pose screams, "I'm hungry, can you give me a pita triangle this big?"

No, that's the NY-BK themed pose of "Trendy doofuses, eminate your stench!"
