Enslaved ‎– Vertebrae. Label: Indie Recordings ‎– INDIE023LPL. Vertebrae: Mixed at Studio Studio, Toten, Norway. Mastered at Sterling Sound, New York, US. Recorded at Propeller Music Division, Oslo, Norway, at Amper Tone Studios, Oslo, Norway, at Earshot Studios, Bergen, Norway and at Peersonal Sound, Bergen, Norway.

Also, with Vertebrae, Enslaved have lost a lot of what made them a great band in the first place. Sure, the guitars are still fairly good, and shine through at some points throughout the album (the fantastic guitar solo in Ground immediately comes to mind) but for the most part the album is lost in other places, going in way too many different directions way too many times in each song. The black metal moments are way, way too calm.

Album (Studio full-length). Indie Recordings, Nuclear Blast. Vertebrae Information. Track listing (Songs).

Enslaved released the album Vertebrae in September 2008, their tenth studio album and their first on Nuclear Blast. Terrorizer Magazine named it the album of the year in 2008, notably above other metal releases such as Meshuggah's obZen and Opeth's Watershed. After touring Europe extensively, Enslaved embarked on a North American tour with the progressive death metal band Opeth in May 2009. The album is noted for its shift in its approach and its diverse sounds; Sammy.

Abandoning the powers that gave them sight Summoned to the altars of their loving gods". Storming the walls, once built with pride Swarming like rats away from the lights Howling for justice, death in their eyes Tearing down the pillars with monstrous hate.
