Enslaved - Thorn 7" (2011)
Never anything from this band (from Norway, formed 20 years ago) had really any impact on me previously (maybe I should try again), but this new 2 tracks single is one of the best thing I heard this autumn (and there are a lot of weak things released unfortunately, with blogs strangely enthusiastics for an amount of mediocre old school stoner or doom clichés). Based on black metal, with a rather slow and basic drumming, "Disintegrator" has a wonderful melody that makes you fly upon this shitload reality as few others can do it. And the B-side is great too. It's good to see an old band like this produces such an uncompromised music. Hope they'll pursue in this style. Enjoy it here.
