ENSLAVED RECEIVE 7th NORWEGIAN GRAMMY NOMINATION

ENSLAVED RECEIVE 7th  NORWEGIAN GRAMMY NOMINA - 2013-02-12

2013-02-12 - NORWEGIAN progressive extreme metal band ENSLAVED have just received word of their nomination for the 2012 Spellemann Award in the category “Best Metal Album” with their most recent release, RIITIIR. This prestigious music award is the Norwegian equivalent to the American Grammy. Ceremonies will take place at the Stavanger Concert Hall in Oslo on Saturday, March 23rd and will be broadcast live on NRK 1.

ENSLAVED - who just performed in Seattle, Washington last night and continue their trek through the U.S. and Canada - offer the following statement:

“By the hammer, saw, and grinder of Thor! What an incredibly pleasant surprise to be getting on the road, being nominated for Spellemannsprisen (Norwegian Grammy)! Having that many people interested & versed in music liking our album is simply overwhelming. We’ll miss the party, but feel confident that others will take care of the scandalous behaviour. Thank you jury, this means a lot to us no matter the outcome of the ‘final’!”

This is the seventh time ENSLAVED have received a Spellemann Award nomination. They have won four consecutive times in a row for their previous four studio albums:

• 2010: Axioma Ethica Odini - WINNER
• 2008: Vertebrae - WINNER
• 2006: Ruun - WINNER
• 2004: Isa - WINNER
• 2003: Below The Lights - Nominated
• 2000: Mardraum – Nominated

ENSLAVED’s RIITIIR debuted at #8 on the American Billboard Heatseekers (New Artists) chart in October of last year and appeared on numerous “Best Albums of 2012” lists around the world.
