Enslaved is progressive extreme metal band from Sveio between Bergen and Stavanger. The band got started in 1991, but their debut, Vikingligr Veldi, wasn’t released until 1994 in Deathlike Silence Records. Since then the band has released 12 records. The last one, RIITIIR, came out on German independent label Nuclear Blast in 2012.
Enslaved has earned four Spellemann awards. The band has gone through several stylistic changes, from viking/black metal, to death metal to a progressive sound. Enslaved is frequently touring abroad and has travelled on extensive tours in the US over ten times.
