Slør is - rather incredibly - Eivør's first commercial release in the UK. It's one that has been over 2 years in the making- with Slør actually an English-translated re-imagining of her Faroese-sung 2015 album release of the same title. Eivør originally wrote the Faroese version of Slør - which translates as 'veils' or 'blurriness' - having returned to her childhood home in the remote archipelago of The Faroe Islands. Says Eivør; 'Slør' is very much about my roots- I just really wanted to go home, be back in the old environment. There was something exhilarating about being back at the heart of where I came from as a person and an artist, all the while realising how many things inside me had changed.' Working closely with her producer Tróndur Bogason, Eivør has reconciled the Faroes' remote majesty with the thoroughly modern world of her dark, intelligent electronica; 'The landscape I grew up with, it seemed so natural to turn into an electronic landscape, because it has this electric sound in it, you know. All these wild, crazy sounds- stormy, winds, and the ocean.' The fruits of the meticulous 8 month period of transcribing the album into English are borne out in spades- teeming with darkly hooky pop, you sense Slør will ensure Eivør doesn’t remain a veiled presence for much longer.

"Axioma Ethica Odini" By Norse Music Re-Issue on CD Digipak!
Paired with the re-issue of "Vertebrae", as these two Enslaved-albums also form an important pair musically; as many of the bands releases do, forming pairs in dynamics sonically and conceptually. By now Enslaved was "up and running" with the turn to the more progressive and avant-gardist directions more or less completed with its more mellow predecessors - "Axioma Ethica Odini" came as a lightning strike from the golden heavens of Valhalla itself - with its more direct approach and songwriting.
A big part of the big leap forward in production was the transition to using the band's own studios in Bergen in addition to getting co-producer (and present drummer) Iver Sandøy onboard as well as recording parts in his Solslottet Studios, also in Bergen - and then taking all those recording over to Jens Bogren at Fascination Studios, Örebro, Sweden for mixing. The powerful sound that resulted set a new standard for both Enslaved and progressive Extreme Metal.
The By Norse Music (Ivar Bjørnson's own label) re-issue features two special songs recorded during the same sessions as the album and previously only released as a 7" single; the hypnotic ethereal "Migration" (inspired by Enslaved's collaborative commissioned piece at Molde International Jazz festival in 2008) and the doom-version of Frost-classic "Jotunblod" re-imagined for a special set at Roadburn Festival 2010. This issue features analytic and in-depth liner notes by Dom Lawson of Metal Hammer UK and Prog Magazine fame - a longtime friend and supporter of the band's uncompromising preference of the roads not taken.
The design of the album is beautifully redone with new details, colors layout solutions by Marcelo Vasco (Slayer, Kreator, Machine Head), all while staying true to the original artwork by longtime Enslaved-cover artist Truls Espedal.
