1994 Debut Available on Vinyl for the First Time /Colored Pressing
Enslaved re-issues their seminal 1994 debut Vikingligr Veldi (Glorious Viking Square) for the first time ever on vinyl to coincide with their 25 European Tour. This colored double vinyl edition has been respectfully remastered for the format by Iver Sandøy; preserving every bit of the original dynamics.
Enslaved`s first full-length was co-produced with the legendary Pytten in Grieghallen, Bergen, Norway and is dedicated to Mayhem's Euronymous whose label Deathlike Silence Productions originally released the album following his murder by Varg Vikernes. This album has lyrics in Icelandic, and is a tribute to the Norse landscape, history and mythology. The songs are matching these themes with long horizontal songscapes, dense atmospheres and winds from the past.
"We have been waiting since the day we recorded it, and at last it is happening! It has been a challenging journey, and it has demanded a lot of patience and understanding from all parts involved. The day we hold the finished product in our hand will be as sacred a day for us as the day we finished recording it". – Ivar and Enslaved
