SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
3 stars Bloodhemn is the fourth studio album from Norwegian black/ viking metal band Enslaved. This album is the last in a series of what can be considered the early albums from Enslaved. After this album Enlaved would change their style toward a more experimental extreme metal approach.

The music on Bloodhemn is in many ways similar to the style Enslaved played on their previous album Eld. Generally fast paced black metal with viking lyrics. The songs are better composed and much more powerful than the ones on Eld though. This is not technical music but the impact is powerful, raw and even majestic at times. The vocals are both black metal rasps and clean monotenous vocals.

Standout tracks would be the memorable and powerful I Lenker Til Ragnarok, Ansuz Astral ( Note the grand ending to the song) and the last song Sutungs Mjød/ Perkulator which is a bit different from the rest of the songs. It´s much slower and solely features clean singing. There is also a folky ethnic touch to that song.

The musicianship is very strong at this point. Dirge Rep on drums is a fast and tight drummer while Ivar Bjørnson´s grand and brutal guitar riffing is also a great feature. Grutle´s harsh black metal screaming is an aquired taste but personally I like it.

The production is really sharp yet still raw and brutal.

Bloodhemn still doesn´t reveal many progressive tendencies in Enslaved´s music and it´s essentially a black metal album that should hold little or no interest to prog heads. To those of us who in addition to being prog heads also enjoy extreme metal this is a great album though and it fully deserves 3 stars. I will still recommend that you listen to either Isa or RUUN before anything else from Enslaved even though Bloodhemn is definitely worth a listen.

3 stars Enslaved finally decided to produce an album professionally and it pays. This is Frost revisited with a blasting production: raw, crisp, sharp but also well balanced and powerful.

After the Nordic epic black metal of Eld, Enslaved returned to the shorter and more furious format of their defining album Frost. As with all the best of black metal, the music has a big majestic impact bound to entrance you with its relentless drone. The extremely aggressive Urtical Gods serves as an example and will bludgeon everyone who cares to listen with an open mind.

As an album this suffers from the well known metal syndrome called "Hey that sounds cool! Let's do that trick on every bar of every song we write on all our albums". It makes most tracks unnecessary except for a few gems like the mentioned Urtical Gods, Eit Auga Til Mimir, Blodhemn and the epic Nordic folk of Suttings Mjod.

After the next album, Enslaved grew into a progressive black metal unit that will be more pleasing to the people who spend their lives here. For me, they lost something in the process. Except for the chilling ISA, Enslaved gradually lost their edge in the next decade. Well they had a bit too much edge here! The next album Mardraum would loosen things a bit and perfect this style.

PROG REVIEWER
3 stars 'Blodhemn' - Enslaved (6/10)

After a fairly lukewarm experience with Enslaved's third album 'Eld', 'Blodhemn' comes to my arrives with this fan already somewhat shaken. Before 'Eld', I was under the impression that Enslaved could do no wrong, and while it was not necessarily a bad album, I found myself oddly unenthused by it. Enslaved's fourth album 'Blodhemn' then may be a step back from 'Eld' in terms of the band's style development, but it functions better as an album. Sounding more like the band's second album 'Frost' more than anything, 'Blodhemn' is something of a return to form, although the quality of the music is still not yet back up to par with the band's earlier studio output.

With the exception of a spacey introductory soundscape, 'Blodhemn' is unrelenting, violent, and abrasive, much like one would come to expect from the Norwegian black metal scene. What makes this a bit of a surprise to hear is that this album comes after a highly ambitious record which featured sixteen minute long epics, folkish instrumentation, and some attempts at clean vocals. Not all of the Viking metal sound is abandoned here, but black metal has taken enough of a forefront here to mark a considerable change in sound. While whether someone likes this or not is very much up to their genre preference, it does feel as if Enslaved make a more enjoyable and lasting impression with the black metal and folky material over the anthem-based music.

The highlight here is quite possibly the last track for me, which manages to hint at some of the complexity that would be furthered touched upon with the band's fifth record 'Mardraum'. The songwriting here is possibly the weakest aspect of 'Blodhemn' however, rarely making a really memorable impact and instead feeling like a few really interesting ideas are tossed amidst other recycled ones and glued together into songs which can be fairly hit-or-miss at times. In any case, Enslaved manage to make the record a good one through their fiery performance, which here may lack subtlety or detail, but gets raw power and atmosphere across quite nicely.

'Blodhemn' is yet another fairly straightforward and somewhat underwhelming release from Enslaved, although certainly enjoyable, and surely indicative of the band's obvious distinction in the Norwegian black metal scene. Niched between two highly ambitious and stylistic works from the band, 'Blodhemn' does feel a tad unnecessary in the overall scope of the band's career, but for someone looking for a more raw approach to the music of Enslaved, 'Blodhemn' is a nice supplement to the rawness they mastered with 'Frost'.

4 stars There's an incredible depth to the violence, passion, and beauty on Enslaved's CD Blodhemn. Few metal bands rival Enslaved's musical complexity and originality. And though they project an image of ancient Viking warriors, Enslaved create some of the most intense, razor sharp, and innovative metal ... (read more)
