Enslaved release their iconic early demo from 1992 “Yggdrasill” as a fully remastered re-issue as black 12" vinyl!
Raw, untamed, furious yet sophisticated, “Yggdrasill” is undoubtedly an essential cornerstone of the Norwegian Black Metal scene. Despite the young age of their members in their teens at the time they recorded it, “Yggdrasill” already shows Enslaved's ability to write complex, powerful and evocative compositions, being among the first ones to tap into the Norse mythology and Viking imagery to convey their Nordic heritage.
Fully remastered by Tony Lindgren at Fascination Street Studios, this new re-issue of “Yggdrasill” from By Norse Music (Ivar Bjørnson’s own imprint) on black 12” vinyl edition features an insert with liner notes from both Grutle Kjellson and Ivar Bjørnson, providing a historical perspective upon the music, archive photos from the period and full lyrics; and all five songs from the demo plus the Bonus Track “Enslaved"!
