Norwegian progressive/psychedelic black metallers ENSLAVED performed a cover version of LED ZEPPELIN‘s “Immigrant Song” on this week’s episode of “Trygdekontoret” on the Norwegian TV channel NRK.
“Trygdekontoret” is hosted by former TURBONEGRO bassist Thomas Seltzer (a.k.a. Happy-Tom).
ENSLAVED‘s twelfth studio album, “RIITIIR”, sold around 2,300 copies in the United States in its first week of release. The CD landed at position No. 8 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.
The band’s previous album, “Axioma Ethica Odini”, opened with 1,400 units back in September 2010 to debut at No. 16 on the Top New Artist Albums chart.
ENSLAVED will headline Scion AV‘s Label Showcase, featuring Roadburn Records, with additional appearances by WHITE HILLS, Scott Kelly of NEUROSIS, EARTHLESS and ASTRA. The event takes place on November 10 at the Roxy in West Hollywood, California. The concert is free with RSVP at www.scionav.com/metalshow.
