Norway’s Enslaved have shared another live video taken from their Cinematic Tour 2020 releases due 25th June via By Norseand Nuclear Blast. ‘Sacred Horse’ (live) is taken from the The Rise of Ymir (Verftet Online Festival 2020) recording.
Enslaved’s Grutle Kjellson commented,
“Sacred Horse is probably one of our proudest moments in our now three-decade long career, and that song pretty much sums up what Enslaved is all about; energy. A very aggressive song, yet also dynamic and mellow. Besides, it’s always a delightful experience to perform it on stage and to see how our audience absorbs it and enjoys it. We’ve even seen people crying at the front row while playing this song, and of course beholding our fans unleashing such emotions, really lifts the whole experience to a pretty much divine level! Obviously, performing it without an audience at an online show wasn’t an easy task, but the memories of our previous endeavours playing it alongside our fans, got us through. Thanks for watching!”
A heavy metal soaked backbone gives the guys freedom to bring some jazz noodling on both guitar and organ. Hard hitting rhythms and cymbal bashing keep things at breakneck pace, until a breakdown weaves mystical viking melodies and some clean harmonies together. This is progressive metal at its finest done by one of the best bands in the business.
