The new Enslaved album E is officially released today via Nuclear Blast; like we said, Friday the 13th isn’t turning out to be such an unlucky date after all! In this exclusive video clip, Grutle chats about his introduction to heavy music.

We’ve interviewed the band for issue 081, which is onsale later this month – more details will be posted in the next few days, but in the meantime, you can hear what he has to say here:

We’ve also included the video for the track ‘Storm Son’ here. Songwriter and guitarist Ivar explains that it “deals with the duality of man and nature, how important and basic that relationship is. Everything we do and create are imitations of nature; as we evolved from nature, that is how it must be – yet modern man thinks he and she is independent of nature, that we somehow are so superior that we do not have to take nature into consideration other than as a backdrop for shitty movies. Or festivals. Losing touch with nature is basically to lose touch with being human.”
