Influential Norwegian black metal band Enslaved was formed in 1991 by guitarist/keyboardist Ivar Bjørnson and bassist Grutle Kjellson. TheirYggdrstll demo followed a year later. The group's official albums during the 1990s included 1994's Frost, 1997's Eld, and 1999's Blodhemn cemented their reputation as innovators.The new century began with the band issuing Mardraum. Though their lineup shifted continually--only Bjørnson and Kjellson remained constants--their reputation spread with each successive album without a let up in quality: Monumension (2001), Below the Lights (2003), Isa (2004), Ruun (2006), Vertebrae (2008), Axioma Ethica Odini (2010), RIITIIR (2012) and In Times (2015) all insured that Enslaved became not only festival headliners globally, but black metal legends. ~ Steve Huey
