Enslaved is back with a brand new single called “Kingdom” and it might be one of the band’s best songs they’ve ever released. Though that’s easy to say that about anything Enslaved ever does considering how good they are, but still – I’m sticking to it. The hooks are great and the riffs are killer, but the one thing that really stands out to me personally is Iver Sandøy‘s drumming. Dude covers so much stylistic ground through “Kingdom” and performs it so well that it’s a wonder we don’t talk about his abilities more often.
“‘Kingdom’ – a tribute to the endurance of ideas and the people that carry them forward through hardship and fatigue, for the benefit of us all,” said Ivar Bjørnson. “Musically, it is a tribute to the Riff and the Rite: to the Teutonic Thrash kings, to Space Rock, to the Ambient pioneers of the 70s. With this we ask you to join us on this coming trek. Thanks for listening!”
