Building With Fire


This song rules. Awesome clean vocals but some excellent riffs right throughout. So far this is an awesome follow up to Riitiir. Good theatrical elements too.

Heard this a couple days ago when was first unveiled through a friend who is an Enslaved freak. Sounds pretty good but not blown away. The clean vocals sound too Mastodonish to me.

I'd give them a listen myself but being so close to release day I may as well wait it out. Kinda good to know it may not blow me away either as I think bands often set people up to be disappointed with overhype.

The keyboard player who did the clean vocals is no longer in the band so it sounds different . Not that its not good ...grew on me the second listen. And I already liked it.

Normally I'd say you can't overhype Enslaved but to be honest "The River's Mouth" didn't really connect with me either. It sounds like a song trying to build up to something that never happens. "Storm Son" is pretty solid though. I really like the keyboards and the tempo change about midway through and near the end.

This is the case where Enslaved can be overhyped. Decent album E is but since Riitiir the music has been somewhat of a step down.
