Roadburn Live is ENSLAVED's first official live album, a split release between Roadburn Records and By Norse Music. The album was recorded during one of band's headlining shows at the renowned Roadburn Festival 2015, an edition curated by ENSLAVED's guitar player Ivar Bjørnson.
Roadburn Live will be available as limited and exclusive Record Store Day color editions and as Roadburn/ENSLAVED-Webshop Gold edition including the original A3 Roadburn poster and color stickers!
Roadburn Live also features a brilliant layout created by highly respected artist and Roadburn's regular graphic designer Costin Chioreanu. The album was mixed by Iver Sandøy at Solslottet Studio and mastered by Jens Bogren (Kreator, Opeth, Sepultura) in Fascination Studios. It is also the last official release with Herbrand Larsen on keys and vocals.
After celebrating their twenty-five year anniversary in 2016 showcasing a majority of older material, Roadburn Live displays songs mainly from the "newer" and more progressive era of ENSLAVED's career, with songs from "In Times," "Riitiir," "Isa," "Below The Lights," and "Monumension." Featuring guest appearances of Einar Selvik (Wardruna), Aðalbjörn Tryggvason (Sólstafir), Per Wiberg (Opeth, Candlemass), and Menno Gootjes (Focus) on "Immigrant Song," the first cover song by ENSLAVED to appear on any record ever.
Release date and format: April 22nd: Record Store Day limited color editions and Roadburn/ENSLAVED-Webshop gold edition. Standard vinyl, CD, and digital. More information soon!
