Independent brooklyn-based metal-label Tridroid Records have gotten the opportunity to re-release Enslaved’s fifth album “Vikingligr Veldi” on cassette – but not as a regular edition – they’ve gone out of their way to make a deluxe cassette-edition. The features for this release are screenprinted pouches, made by Bindrune Recordings, foldout booklet with english and norwegian lyrics, bonus sleeve artwork as seen on the double-LP reissue (courtesy of Zbigniew M. Bielak), two-colored printed cassette shells, everything on high-quality chrome tape reel. The layout of the release itself was made by Mark Addington from Fólkvangr Records.
The pre-orders for this exquisite release is up and it will be shipped out to customers on the 9th of November. Enslaved will have the release in stock on their European tour and Season Of Mist will distribute them for the EU customers.
It is noticeable how great it looks by glancing at the picture of the full release itself, Tridroid Records have caught our eyes in a good way by the announcement of this bit of craftsmanship. To order your copy of this release, simply head on over to their online shop and get it done. Fifteen dollars is really a bargain.
For those interested in the sound of that album, we could only find one official digital release, which is in a compilation together with “Hordanes Land“.
