God ettermiddag! A very special treat for you today my friends, an interview with the amazing Arve Isdale (aka Ice Dale), guitarist of Enslaved!
Norwegian progressive black metal/Viking metal band Enslaved was formed in 1991 by Ivar Bjørnson and Grutle Kjellson (also known as Kjetil Grutle). Since that time they have recorded 13 wonderful studio albums, including their latest release "In Times". (See my pairing of "In Times" here: http://brewsandtunes.blogspot.com/2015/03/march-14th-2015-gigantic-in-time.html). Arve joined Enslaved in 2002. Along with his work with Enslaved, he is very active in the Norwegian metal scene as both a member of bands and as a studio session player. Brews and Tunes recently talked with Arve about Enslaved, music, his influences, and touring:
11. If there was one thing you’d like your fans to know about you, what would that be?
12. Brews and Tunes pairs craft beer with hard rock, progressive rock, and metal. So Arve Isdal comes home from a long day at the studio or from a show… what beer does he grab and what album does he spin to help decompress?
