Spikerot Records is stoked to announce the reissue of this timeless classic of Avantgarde Metal. 20 years after its recordings, SOLEFALD’s fourth album “IN HARMONIA UNIVERSALI” will be finally available on vinyl for the first time ever.

SOLEFALD are a wilful and truly unapologetical one-of-a-kind band, defying all known genre definitions with each release. “IN HARMONIA UNIVERSALI” is one of their most complex works to date, layered and eclectic, it stems from the band’s obsession with Progressive Rock, making its way through art, history and philosophy with lyrics touching five different languages. An unheard-of blend of Extreme Metal with bombastic passages, Gothic mystique, acoustic interludes, and the fearless use of instruments like saxophone, hammond and piano, make this album a crucial step in the band’s career.

ENSLAVED announce new EP ‘Caravans To The Outer Worlds’ + reveal single/video


There is a desert which is very old, very dry, and very dangerous. Few have ever dared to cross it, and fewer have returned. Some say that it is a desert between places, others say that it is a desert between worlds. Those who have crossed it and returned swear that the desert is another world in itself – an astral bridge, which swallows all but the most well-prepared travelers.

Enslaved are such seasoned voyagers. In their last venture, they descended into Utgard, deep in the dark beneath their native Norway. Now, they are preparing to set off again, not down this time, but out. They intend to cross the desert, into it and perhaps beyond it.
