Enslaved is one of the most long lived metal bands in Norway. This year they celebrate 25 years together as a band with concert dates in Norway and Europe. The band was formed by Ivar Bjørnson and Grutle Kjellson from Haugesund, and they are still with the band. So far Enslaved have won four Spellemann awards (Norwegian Grammy), with three more nominations. Last night they celebrated their first 25 years at Rockefeller in Oslo.

Being appreciated is a rare thing for me. As rare as a snow leopard. Don’t really know how to deal with it.
It’s a tsunami wave of mixed emotions. But it’s even stranger when those who appreciate me are my heroes.
Suddenly, those I’ve always saw as an example to follow tell me “thank you for being who you are”. Treat me with more respect and dignity than those who surrounded me all my life.
One simple word, one simple gesture make all the difference.
I’m flooded with emotions and I don’t really know what to do with all those feelings.
Probably drawn myself in it. If I can survive the tears.
Friday at Blastfest started out with the same wet weather as the day before. Fortunately it wasn’t raining when I went over to the venue, but the rain came back with a vengeance when I went home after the last band. Hard wind and pouring rain isn’t exactly my kind of weather, so a taxi got me safe back to the hotel. But inside at USF Verftet it was hot and dark with fifteen bands eager to play their songs and fans from all over the world waiting to hear them. (Photo above: Ravn from 1349)
