4 stars The latest studio album by Enslaved is a great one. The albums concept and namesake is a mythical place in Norse mythology called Utgard. The songs on the album all center around that theme, with the giants being a metaphor for "uncontrollable forces in nature and in your own mind," as said by frontman Grutle Kjellson to Apple Music. The band plays its signature style of black metal and progressive metal on this album, which is a perfect soundtrack for the overall theme of the album. Other instruments such as the keyboard and the acoustic guitar are used, adding to the albums sound. One thing I love about Enslaved is how they keep to their black metal roots, with the guitar sound and technique, and the vocal technique, but they always find out a way to expand and renew their sound into something unique and different with each record. I recommend this album to anyone who is getting into Enslaved, such as myself, or die-hard fans of the band who would love the album no matter what.
