Crannk Interviews Enslaved Guitarist Ivar Bjørnson

“It is not about avoiding fear of the pitch-black darkness, but to go into the darkness itself…”

Enslaved are due to release their 15th Studio album “Utgard” October 2nd and Enslaved have never been a band to stagnate, with “Utgard” further continuing the exploration of prog and psychedelic vibes while seamlessly combining with blistering black metal, solid guitar leads, and Norse mythology and folklore.

I recently caught up with the legendary guitarist of Enslaved Ivar Bjørnson to discuss the latest album “Utgard“, talk Norse Mythology, Arve ‘Ice Dale’ Isdal and the leads that permeate through the album, Artwork, and the themes of “Utgard”.

‘UTGARD’, out on October 2nd:
