5.0 out of 5 stars Larger Than Time, Heavier Than Night October 1, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enslaved to Greatness October 8, 2010
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Their best in years October 1, 2010
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Like their last three albums, only better. October 15, 2010
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Crushes the last three albums, errrrr, no.... but October 1, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Sorry, but Isa, Ruun, and Vertebrae freaking rule. That said, that doesn't mean this album doesn't rule either because it is the natural extension of their creative direction. That's the way they've always been. I have all their albums, they are all evolutions. I am still getting used to this one, but that's the way of all complicated well written music. It deserves a 5 star rating, but IMHO so do Isa, Ruun, and Vertebrae. If you like Enslaved what are you waiting for? buy this now, probably album of the year for me and many others.

5.0 out of 5 stars Their Best Album I Think May 23, 2014
By Warren
Format:MP3 Music
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

I'm extraordinarily picky about my music. Not in an idiotic, doesn't-know-crap-about-time-signatures hipster sort of way, but seriously. This album is great.
