Norwegian prog metallers Enslaved have announced the release of no less than four live albums through Nuclear Blast Records on June 25. The Rise Of Ymir, Chronicles Of The Northbound, Below The Lights and Utgard - The Journey Within were all recorded during the band's 2020 online Cinematic tour.

"We are so stoked about how these Cinematic Tour releases turned out; the sound is great and the packaging is beautiful and unique like the shows themselves," enthuses bassist Ivar Bjørnson. "The crown jewel for old vinyl collectors like ourselves has got to be the wooden box - handmade, numbered and named individually."

The Rise of Ymir chronicles the band's debut digital show, which took place on April 1st 2020 at USF, Bergen, as part of the Verftet Online Music Festival. 
Chronicles of the Northbound, Below The Lights and Utgard - The Journey Within, which featured exclusively on the Prog Magazine website, detail the band's Cinematic Summer Tour digital shows which took place last summer. The events were collaborations with respected European festivals Roadburn, Beyond The Gates and Summer Breeze.

The releases will be available as a Wooden Boxset (ltd. edition 300 copies - handcrafted, personally named & numbered), Splatter Vinyl (ltd. edition 300 copies), 4 x CD/DVD boxset (ltd. edition 1000 copies), 4 x DVD (ltd. edition 1000 copies) and as digital albums.
