Enslaved have released what will go down as one of 2021’s more visually gorgeous music videos for their single “Ruun II – The Epitaph”. This single is off the bands latest EP Caravans To The Outer Worlds, which was released last week. Watch the video below then check out the entire EP.
Grutle Kjellson stated,
“Releasing an EP is a huge privilege, it really is. It is somehow reliving to go on a stroll away from the the album format, and take some leaps into obscurity in between two full lengths. There’s so many great and experimental EP’s in music history; Magical Mystery Tour, Garage Days Revisited, Deathcrush, The Golden Years… just to mention a very few. We hope Caravans To The Outer Worlds, our third EP in 30 years, can fascinate and inspire.”
Ivar Bjørnson stated,
“This EP is an expression of the vital state Enslaved is in – the idea to create a transitory release between Utgard and what is to come next logically led to the idea of an EP. Iver’s idea of adding short intermezzos between the two main songs gave this release even more energy and depth. This EP is one that points backwards towards our early works as well as forward to a yet unknown place we seem to be heading for.”
