Enslaved - Axioma Ethica Odini

Norway’s renowned progressive/psychedelic black metal band ENSLAVED have launched a worldwide fan video contest for the track “Ethica Odini” off their new album, Axioma Ethica Odini, due out in North America on September 28th.

States guitarist/songwriter Ivar Bjørnson:

“We wanted to do something else for the album video this time around. The track ‘Ethica Odini’ opens the album and stood out as the choice for making a video.  Earlier, we have done videos more or less by ourselves (“Isa”), semi-professionally (“Path To Vanir,” “Essence”), and all-the-way-glossy-pro (“The Watcher”).  Now we are really curious to see what our listeners can conjure up out there: an entire new angle and blank sheets is always a good thing in the ENSLAVED universe!  This is a way to interact directly with our listeners, which feels very right – as we seem to have the most involved listeners in the first place.  We can’t begin to express the appreciation for the support we have been shown through the run-up to this release!  May the best director win!”
