«Paired with the re-issue of €œVertebrae€, as these two Enslaved-albums also form an important pair musically; as many of the bands releases do, forming pairs in dynamics sonically and conceptually. By now Enslaved was €œup and running€ with the turn to the more progressive and avant-gardist directions more or less completed with its more mellow predecessors €“ €œAxioma Ethica Odini€ came as a lightning strike from the golden heavens of Valhalla itself €“ with its more direct approach and songwriting.

A big part of the big leap forward in production was the transition to using the band€™s own studios in Bergen in addition to getting co-producer (and present drummer) Iver Sand¸y onboard as well as recording parts in his Solslottet Studios, also in Bergen €“ and then taking all those recording over to Jens Bogren at Fascination Studios, –rebro, Sweden for mixing. The powerful sound that resulted set a new standard for both Enslaved and progressive Extreme Metal.

The re-issue features two special songs recorded during the same sessions as the album and previously only released as a 7€ single; the hypnotic ethereal €œMigration€ (inspired by Enslaved€™s collaborative commissioned piece at Molde International Jazz festival in 2008) and the doom-version of Frost-classic €œJotunblod€ re-imagined for a special set at Roadburn Festival 2010. This issue features analytic and in-depth liner notes by Dom Lawson of Metal Hammer UK and Prog Magazine fame €“ a longtime friend and supporter of the band€™s uncompromising preference of the roads not taken.

The design of the album is beautifully redone with new details, colors layout solutions by Marcelo Vasco (Slayer, Kreator, Machine Head), all while staying true to the original artwork by longtime Enslaved-cover artist Truls Espedal.
