Enslaved makes black metal music, while Norwegian political party leader Lars Sponheim raises sheep. Sponheim has been making a lot of noise about declaring free downloads a civil right in Norway. So Enslaved took a field trip to “download” one of Sponheim’s sheep. Hilarity ensues!
Enslaved must know something is up. The black metal visionaries only sold a few thousand copies in the U.S. of their last CD, Ruun, but their shows are always packed. While the labels and the RIAA negotiate their way into oblivion, the guys with the beards are getting shafted from all directions.
Polish your Norwegian — here’s a TV report on the aftermath, where the sheep-on-a-leash visits a record store and Norwegian Parliament.
