Extreme progressive metal OGs Enslaved have rocketed past 20 years of existence as a band and are showing no signs of abandoning their adventurous spirit. The 10-minute “Thoughts Like Hammers” is a great example of their trademark blending of a bunch of different genres and making them all work together like a precision-tuned (but still evil) luxury watch.
