Enslaved guitarists join Gibson family

The guitarists from Norwegian black metallers Enslaved have been named as official Gibson artists on the instrument manufacturer's website.

Bass player Grutle Kjellson, rhythm guitarist Ice Dale and lead axeman Ivar Bjornson have all used Gibsons for a number of years and the band suggested they are delighted to be made members of this "exclusive tribe".

They explained that they were first drawn to Gibson after seeing and hearing the "magic" created on the company's instruments by the likes of Slash, Ace Frehley and Jimmy Page and claimed that the firm's guitars have really helped to define their own sound.

"The guitar work and sound is one of Enslaved's most distinctive features - it can only sound like that with Gibson, as simple as that," the band said.

Enslaved are touring the US over the next few months before heading back to Europe to play a number of festival dates, including Bloodstock Open Air in Derby on August 15th.
