Oh, did I mention that this album is the band's longest offering to date as well" I didn't" Well, those of you that haven't already listened to the album yet may as well brace yourselves with intense courage, as these next sixty-seven or so minutes need to be listened without any distractions of any sort. As on Enslaved's past three or four albums, Riitiir is in touch with the philosophical and the mind-bending ideas that have haunted Norse folklore many a century ago.

The album catapulted ENSLAVED to the very forefront of contemporary extreme metal - both as studio and live artists. ENSLAVED are known for having driving concepts in their albums, but what drives RIITIIR? Bjørnson elaborates: The title is a self-made ‘Norse-ified’ version of the words ‘Rites’, ‘Rituals. RIITIIR ‘The Rites of Man,’ to put it in a formulaic and easy way.
Enslaved is a Norwegian extreme metal band formed by Ivar Bjørnson and Grutle Kjellson in Haugesund in June 1991. They are currently based in Bergen, Norway. Though the band's lineup has changed many times over the years, Bjørnson and Kjellson have been the sole constant members, and the lineup remained the same from 2004 to 2016. Following their 25th anniversary world tour, t/vocalist Herbrand Larsen departed from the band after 12 years and six albums.

The Norwegian metal giants' latest album, the longest album of Enslaved's career, attempts to spotlight all of the band's parts in one package. In the discussion leading up to its release, its greatness has felt like a foregone conclusion. But RIITIIR isn't a stenograph of Enslaved's earlier successes. For starters, it's the longest album of Enslaved's career. Where most of their records have inched toward the one-hour mark, this one shoots past it. And only three of its eight tracks don't break eight minutes; by comparison, among the 17 collective and very good songs on 2008's Vertebrae and 2010's Axioma Ethica Odini, none did.

Two decades after their birth in Norway, Enslaved's new album will once again surprise even those who are familiar with their non-linear development. The band's sound is more than ever their own as the underlying thoughts are more deeply engaged and the sounds heightened - the beauty more exquisite and the harsh realities more extreme. RIITIIR embodies a lot more of what has come to be known as Enslaved: indefinable and grandiose, honest and unearthly, dark, harsh, and effortlessly beautiful.
