Approaching their 30th Anniversary, Enslaved have announced an upcoming live album and DVD called “Cinematic Tour in 2020” and in doing so they have shared “The Crossing” cut from last year’s “Below The Lights” live stream. Pre-orders are available here. The news comes after the Norwegian Extreme Metallers set February 2022 for a European headlining tour trek with Intronaut and Obsidian Kingdom for their current album “Utgard“.
The band comment: “The online performance of Below The Lights was indeed a trip. There has been a huge demand for us to perform that album for some years now. Ironically, because there was very little buzz around it in the days of its initial release back in 2003. I guess we fell into the good ol’ pit in-between the chairs back then, and we got pretty puzzled when people started to shout out for those songs 10 years later! Anyway, we are psyched and proud to present to you a special performance of the whole album, also including a sixth member, Inge Rypdal! Rypdal is a long time friend of the band and has been collaborating with Enslaved on several occasions over the years, including a stunning performance on the recordings of Below The Lights, adding a beautiful contribution on ‘A Darker Place’.”
