      Enslaved's ninth album (2006).

      Celebrated at the time as a landmark release in progressive extreme metal, Enslaved's 'Ruun' isn't really all that special or innovative, but is still an improvement over the comparatively dull 'Isa.' Most songs are fairly slow paced and full of melodic moments owing more to prog rock than black metal, while almost pop elements prevail in some of the accessible riffs to songs like 'Entroper.'

      There aren't any weak moments here, but at the same time, few songs really scream out for attention. The opener is intriguing with its heavy bass presence and alternation between growls and clean singing, 'Path to Vanir' is slower and evolves into a gloomy acoustic song by the end, and the title song is a great example of mellow black metal, which some may have previously seen as an oxymoron. The only real disappointment with this album is that for all its purported attempts to be different, the songs do end up sounding largely the same.

      1. Entroper
      2. Path to Vanir
      3. Fusion of Sense and Earth
      4. Ruun
      5. Tides of Chaos
      6. Essence
      7. Api-vat
      8. Heir to the Cosmic Seed
