Norwegian Progressive / Viking Black Metal veterans Enslaved have recently revealed the details regarding their upcoming studio release. "RIITIIR" is the title of what will be their twelfth full length album, and a follow-up to their 2010 release "Axioma Ethica Odini".

Guitarist Ivar Bjørnson, one of Enslaved's songwriters and founding members, has revealed some further details behind the concepts on "RIITIIR" through the band's official Facebook profile:

The album is, as mentioned, entitled RIITIIR - a self-made 'Norse-ified' version of the words 'Rites' / 'Rituals.' RIITIIR = 'The Rites of Man,' to put it in a formulaic and easy way. There is no story with a timeline; again we've built structures that lay above the independent lyrics that we feel more comfortable with letting the reader explore, interpret, or simply discard themselves.

"RIITIIR" is scheduled to be released through record label Nuclear Blast on the 28th of September in Europe and on the 2nd of October in North America and the rest of the world.

Shit's going to be epic! cannot wait


I've enjoyed every single Enslaved album, although to be honest Frost was the one I found the least accessible. I can't wait for Riitiir, I have no doubt that they will deliver once again.

I've also enjoy every Enslaved album despite their change in style over the years. Long live enslaved! Can't wait for Riitiir to be released, I'm almost counting down the days now.
