Enslaved’s ”Axioma Ethica Odini” will once again surprise and at the same time make a lot of sense in light of the band’s history and non-linear development. The sound is more than ever the band’s own, the underlying thoughts and concept more personal and engaged than ever . It is simply put, a lot more of what has come to be known as “Enslaved”: Indefinable and grandiose – honest and unearthly – dark and beautiful.
The team of Ivar Bjornson, Grutle Kjellson and Herbrand Larsen constitutes the producers of “Axioma Ethica Odini” with a relentless focus on bringing the instrumental qualities of Enslaved’s members, as well as the unique collective sound of the band all the way through the speakers. The recording process once again returned to the band’s hometown Bergen. The album was produced in the members’ own studio, Earshot studios (Enslaved, Sahg, Ov Hell, Demonaz and more). The mix was then done by Jens Bogren in Fascination Street Studios (Opeth, Amon Amarth and more), while Chris Sansom mastered in Propeller Music Division, Oslo (N).
