I will be brief here. "Axioma Ethica Odini" is hands-down the finest Enslaved album since "Below the Lights." It virtually crushes the three albums that preceded it.

As odd as it may sound, there is not that much new here. Enslaved have been far beyond the leading edge of prog/black metal now for almost a decade. Each album has offered a mix of '70s progressive rock, bizarre Voivod riffing, black metal obliteration, etc. The same holds true on this release, just everything has been tightened up immeasurably.

Jens Bogren was brought in to mix the record. He is responsible for the skull-crushing sound that can be found on the latest albums by Opeth and Amon Amarth. Possibly the only current metal producer who gets a massive, professional sound, particularly crafted to each band, that doesn't sound compressed and brickwalled into the absurd noise found on so many major heavy releases.

The vocals have had particular attention paid to them this time. The ever-improving clean vocals have advanced markedly and Bogren gets an absolutely phenomenal sound from Grutle Kjellson's harsh vox, guttural bellows and shrieks; swirling around one another approaching the heights of Mikael Akerfeldt's genre-defining performance at the end of "Blackwater Park."

Enslaved have been guilty in the past of throwing whacked-out riffs together in a seemingly random fashion, having songs go on too long or randomly switching between clever parts at the most inappropriate moment. "AEO" finds the songwriting tighter and more succinct than it has been in ages, even though many of the tracks are around the seven minute mark.

And of last note, I feel as though the band have not performed with this much ease and confidence since "Mardraum" roughly a decade ago.

Format: Audio CD
Is it prog metal or black metal? Does the distinction matter? With "Axioma Ethica Odini," Enslaved answer with a resounding "no." It truly does not matter what genre category one applies to the band when they write songs of such impact and resonance. Grutle's vocals stay true to the black metal archetype, and his voice is in as fine a form as ever - he is the definition of visceral, cutting through your stereo like a battle axe. Herbrand Larsen (on keyboards) consistently contributes great clean vocals (Night Sight being a tremendous example). On guitar, Ivar and Ice Dale sound better than ever (and deliver the RIFFS!), and Cato is tight on the drums.

None of this should surprise Enslaved fans, but I have to say that the band has exceeded my expectations with this album. I never doubted this mighty horde, but didn't know if this record would be a masterpiece. Based upon this aural argument, one would do well to take ethical cues from the great Mr. Odin. This is a serious contender for my favorite album of 2010.

This album combines all the best elements of their entire career. Everything is high-impact and immaculately crafted. They have recovered some of the excitement of "Mardraum" a decade ago and blended it with their new technical virtuosity. "Vertebrae" had made me doubt these guys, but they are now back with a vengeance.

Enslaved keep the intricacy and subtleties of their last three albums yet bring the rock, and I like it. Whip tight, smart and visceral, this may be the masterpiece they were always capable of. Their best since (at least) 2003's Below The Lights.

Edit, update: After listening to this album for a number of years and loving their next two albums (RIITIIR and In Times) I have to say that Axioma is the most majestic and intense album of Enslaved's discography and my favorite. For me it's most fully appreciated when listening with head phones while reading the lyrics, wow. I can only describe it as beautiful. This music helped me through some very dark times of loss and disillusion.

Some lyrics from Singular:

There is no lasting joy
In numbness and dogma
Too much is too little in knowledge
Driven by mystery

We have lost sight
Of the night-side of the self
Hunted by the fear
Of reunion
Night-sight is bliss
For he who dares look into
A world where you embrace the opposite
Where you are whole

This album keeps getting better and better after every spin. I can't get enough of Ethica Odini,Raidho and Giants. This is a great melting pot of black,pagan and progressive rock elements. The repetitious riff age is hallucinating. It is almost like a black metal version of "Animals" by Pink Floyd. The production is just perfect for this melancholy music. They truly have their own sound. Tentatively speaking, I think this is their best album to date. Did you notice the tip of the hat to Yes on "Night Sight"? Update: I have been listening to this album for two straight weeks and it is in my humble opinion one of the best black prog albums that I have ever heard.

Never really cared for or even liked Enslaved kept on reading about this band being this Godly Viking Metal Band from Valhalla but when I started to listen to their albums such as Vikingligr Veldi and Frost as well as Eld I just couldn't get into to them they were bland albums nothing special or Godly about them but I got to admit this album changed my mind sort of its more Progressive and less doom a fide Viking crap or screaming ur Bloody Head off Black Metal it actually sound good the production is great and sound is awesome and luv the vocals

all n all Great Album
