Preview: Enslaved at Outland Live

Chris DeVille, Columbus Alive

The biggest metal show of the year? This one's certainly a contender.

Enslaved is celebrating 20 years of putting an adventurous spin on soul-crushing sounds. Saturday's Outland show won't just be a run through the classics, though; Norway's extreme metal pioneers have already kicked out two EPs this year in the wake of last year's "Axioma Ethica Odini." In terms of both output and tempo, they aren't slowing down with age.

Factor in a stunning array of opening acts including Alcest, Junius and Struck By Lightning, and you'd be foolish not to arrive while the sun's still shining - assuming you don't dissolve in sunlight, of course.
