May 26, 2009

MetalFanzine.net has uploaded video footage of Norwegian masters of progressive/experimental metal ENSLAVED performing on May 23, 2009 at Newport Music Hall in Columbus, Ohio. Watch the clip below.

ENSLAVED is currently on the road in North America as the support act for Swedish progressive metallers OPETH.

Ivar Bjørnson, ENSLAVED's songwriter and guitarist, previously stated about the trek, "I am stoked that we are going out with OPETH. We have been admirers of OPETH's work for years, especially the direction of their newer works. This is great news for us to take back to our loyal fans and friends in North America at this point; the reception for our newest album, 'Vertebrae', has been fantastic and unforgettable. We can't wait to present the songs live, we promise you won't be let down! Finally we wish to express our sincere gratitude to OPETH for giving us this opportunity."

For the third time in five years, ENSLAVED was honored in the "Metal" category at the Spellemann awards (the Norwegian equivalent to the Grammy Awards). The largest and oldest Norwegian music awards show was held on January 24 at the Spektrum in Oslo, Norway and was broadcast live on the Norwegian channel TV2.

ENSLAVED was previously honored for the "Ruun" (2006) and "Isa" (2004) albums.
