» From the Celtics to the Vikings: Enslaved. And even though they played here in December, Grutle Kjellson said he wished they could play in Portugal more often ‘cause “it’s fucking great”. “And it’s getting dark”, he added, ‘cause let’s face it: a black metal band, no matter how progressive as Enslaved is, looks a lot better playing in the dark.

They didn’t say much more than that – just the occasional “thank you”s, a song title here and there… but the performance itself compensated the lack of talking. Even if the fans didn’t get a whiff of the new album, due in less than 2 months. Apart from “Allfǫðr Oðinn”, taken from the 1992 demo “Yggdrasil” to the 1993 EP “Hordanes Land”, all songs were less than 10 years old, such as “Ethica Odini”, “As Fire Swept Clean The Earth” or the closing theme “Isa”. In between, they made their own version of Led Zeppelin’s “Immigrant Song”. «
