Enslaved’s Iver Sandøy to Chaoszine: “Heimdal is about a journey of the mind”

Author Flavia Andrade - 15.3.2023

Norway’s extreme metal masters Enslaved have just released their 16th album, “Heimdal”, via Nuclear Blast.

The album focuses on the homonymous and mysterious Norse deity. Most famously known as the gatekeeper between the nine Norse realms, Heimdal is a source of constant speculation, as scholars continue to offer new interpretations of his origins and his purpose. With perfect balance between what is known and what is a mystery, between old and new, ancient and current, the album features lighter and darker moments.

Chaoszine had the opportunity to chat with Enslaved’s drummer Iver Sandøy about “Heimdal” in detail and to try to find out what is lurking behind the fog. Sandøy also spoke of the artwork, the challenges of working as a band during the pandemic, the making of livestreams and much more. You can check out the full interview below:
