It's all right, a bit too proggy for my tastes. The wall-of-noise intro was interesting though.

Great Odin's raven! This sounds very promising!

I do know that you're a massive Enslaved fan like me, so I'm sure you expected it would happen just like I did

Yeah I had a big inclining it would be. Still though the band caught me out with their last, more direct, album so I guess they aren't on as linear a path as one might expect.

Sounds extremely promising, the most I've enjoyed an Enslaved song since potentially Return To Yggdrasil

Which makes me love them even more

I like where this is going. More prog is always the best thing to do

Honestly, I really liked the song. Looking forward to the full-length. I had enjoyed The Sleeping Gods before that in the same vein.

Really liked this song - it picks up where the last album stopped, with more prog elements perhaps. Either way, the song is epic, cant wait for the album!

Love it! Cant wait for album

Excellent track! I expected no less.

One of the few bands that just keeps impressing me time and time again. Great song.

Enslaved sounded kind of like the U2 of metal with some of those clean vocal passages. I didn't really like those parts, but some of the more progressive sounding parts were very cool.
Dinruth - 09.08.2012 at 00:36  
I like! how much?
BitterCOld - 09.08.2012 at 01:25  
Skipping and waiting until the whole album comes out.
advent - 09.08.2012 at 01:30  
Well it's good, but i need the whole album to digest it, anyway they seem to go more proggy for the proggy sake.
Verdun_sc - 09.08.2012 at 05:20  
Really didnt feel like 9 minutes. Awesome song. Almost like stuff from Below the Lights.

Skipping and waiting until the whole album comes out.

A wise decision, as their albums are often things that need to be taken in their entirety, in one sitting. At least in my opinion. Enslaved aren't really the type of band where the sound of a whole upcoming album can be judged by the release of a single track. Having said that though, this is pretty decent, and if it IS any hint at what Riitiir will sound like as a whole, then I'm quite satisfied.

Gets better the more I listen to it

Awesome song by an awesome band! I'm sure this new album will be another masterpiece!
Night Sight - 10.08.2012 at 10:59  
Esnalved is one of the few bands that gets stronger each time,hope the whole album will be masterpiece
Mattybu - 11.08.2012 at 00:34  
I think I'll pass right now too and check the whole thing later on.... Something tells me this won't be as good as AEO, although anything is possible.

Sweet track.
