ENSLAVED Reveal Second Single and Video Jettegryta
It is not about avoiding fear of the pitch-black darkness, but to go into the darkness itself…
Norway’s premier progressive black metallers ENSLAVED have released the second single Jettegryta from their upcoming studio album Utgard. The single is accompanied by a frost-bitten video, in which an Icelandic pristine glacial landscape is darkened by sinister events. The band have also launched pre-orders for Utgard, which will be released on October 2nd.
Grutle Kjellson commented on the video: “Iceland was the perfect place to shoot the video for ‘Jettegryta’. Jettegryta translates to Giant´s Cauldron and refers to a phenomenon in nature, where rivers/running water – over a long period – create an often cylindrical hole in solid rock. In ancient Norse folklore, the Jette/Jotun (giants) made these cauldrons to cook in. Although these particular nature phenomena don’t exist on the volcanic island of Iceland, there are plenty of other places on this magical island that could lead to the dwelling of the giants! When Norse settlers came to Iceland in the 8th and 9th century, the fumes and fog from the hot streams and the volcanos clearly told them that this island was inhabited by elves, dwarves and giants! This reminded them of the stories of »Utgard«. To them, Iceland was on the doorsteps of »Utgard«, the outer borders of the world of men; a gateway. The lyrics of the song deal with entering such a mythological and esoteric place; deep within your own mind and imagination, a gateway into the dreams, the unconscious and the realm of chaos. We have tried to transform these words into this clip, and maybe you can feel a glimpse of what those early Icelanders felt when they first entered this realm!”
PALLBEARER’s highly-anticipated fourth album, Forgotten Days, arrives Oct. 23 via Nuclear Blast.
The band has simultaneously released the eight-song album’s first single, leading with a video for the title track.
“I’m extremely stoked to finally share this song with everyone,” says singer/guitar player Brett Campbell. Commenting on the Ben Meredith directed clip, Campbell continues: “The video for ‘Forgotten Days’ tells the story of an unfortunate traveller who journeys too far, and becomes lost in the depths of both inner, and outer, space. What is real when you cannot trust your own mind?”
Bay Area thrash legends HEATHEN recently revealed their fourth studio album entitled, Empire of the Blind, will be released on September 18th via Nuclear Blast Records. The band released the first album trailer. Watch as the band discuss the first single, The Blight.
The band comments: “We are very pleased to announce Empire of the Blind! It’s been another 10 years but we are finally back with a new HEATHEN album. Fine wine takes time! Everyone in the band worked their asses off on this record. Zeuss absolutely nailed it and more than realized our vision for the sound. Travis Smith perfectly captured the bleak atmosphere that we imagined for the artwork. It was a year in the making and we couldn’t be more proud of the outcome. The 1st single ‘The Blight’ is just the beginning… behold the rising Empire!”
