Legendary Progressive Metal band Enslaved has been honored with 12-part documentary series on Norwegian television and on Youtube. The series is named Heimvegen (The Way Home) and all episodes are subtitled into English. The first five episodes are live now and new episodes will run every Saturday. The documentary offers a detailed insight into the history of the band, following Ivar Bjørnson and Grutle Kjellson as they guide us through the journey of Enslaved’s formative years. Check out some classic and current photos from the band. Their new album Utgard is out now via Nuclear Blast/By Norse Records.
Five episodes are available to watch online now, with more to follow every Saturday.

Grutle Kjellson commented, “Doing the documentary for TV Haugaland has turned out to be one of the biggest, positive surprises in our career. It pretty much came out of the blue as well; we were asked early in the summer of 2020, and we were like “oh ok, a local tv network wants to have a little chat, why not?”. That it has ended up as a 12 part documentary was far beyond all of us involved could imagine, and such a great surprise!! Director Dag Olav Husås has really outdone a hell of lot of productions made by a lot bigger networks around the globe in my opinion. He has somehow made us re-discover ourselves, our roots, and going down this memory lane had been an utter pleasure. I hope not just our fans, but also new acquaintances will appreciate watching this as much as we did making it.”
