    I ABSOLUTELY love Enslaved!They are one of the great metal bands of all time, in my opinion. MARDRAUM alone makes their mark on metal...Do you think they are the great Norwegian band, or is there another greater than they?

    Among the bands that stayed "extreme" they are definitely my favorite from Norway. I prefer Ulver and Solefald, though, for the sheer brilliance of their music.

    Ulver are kind of all over the place, but some of their stuff (especially their sophomore acoustic album) is indeed brilliant.

    All of it is brilliant and highly enjoyable if you have an appreciation for the particular style.

    I think they are the greatest metal band from Norway, though I don't like their last albums as much as the earlier ones. Víkingligr veldi, Frost, Eld, Blodhemn, Mardraum - any of those alone is sufficient for me to say that Enslaved is the best extreme metal band I've ever heard.

    Mardraum, Below the lights and ELD (the best ENSLAVED album) are fucking great. I also enjoy their old albums. This band is one of the moost interesting norwegian metal.
    Pink Floyd?? Yes, maybe on ISA the guitar solos sounds a little like 70s 80s rock....
