02:59 - mz as much as I love TWWTTG, I must say that its influence on BM had not been so immense, or at least there had been some delay between that album and other bands taking influence from it. DsO, on the other hand...
02:43 - Neachy The Work Which Transforms Black Metal. I'd have to agree.
02:36 - Apothecary I like to think 2003, personally, because that's when Blut Aus Nord dropped TWWTG, which seemed to be the one album that most said "OK, black metal has entered a new chapter in its history"
Care for another album from Enslaved? In a recent interview, Ivar Bjørnson of Enslaved commented on the band's plans for the future and mentioned that a few side-projects will be revived/born. He also confirms that the band will work on a new album this year.
He says: "This year is going to be my big new project year. We have a new Enslaved album which will be made. We have some side projects that we are working on. Trinacria will be resurrected this year. I am going to try, if there is enough time, to do things on my own. There is just a wide spread of styles, that is why we are coming out with a couple of different projects instead of just one big one."
One can only hope that this means we will see a follow-up to 2012's RIITIIR released this year. Cross your fingers.
For those of you who haven't heard of Ivar's side-project - Trinacria - you can listen to the title track off their debut album, Travel Now Journey Infinitely, below.
