Trinacria was essentially a side project for the core members of Enslaved, with the standard goal of branching from their well-known style. So, the result is that while there are clear Enslaved elements here, this really doesn't sound like an Enslaved record. In general, the songs are more meandering, with a slight nod toward the atmospheric hardcore of bands like Cult Of Luna and the like, though at times ("Make No Mistake") they attempt a cool, upbeat industrial thrash style to great effect. The other noticeable difference is the multiple noises and samples, courtesy of Maja Ratkje and Hild Sofie Tafjold, apparently member of a "noise group" known as Fe-mail. At times these effects are distracting, at other times engaging, but in either case they lend a touch of uniqueness to the proceedings. While not a perfect album, there seemed to be a lot of potential to tap into, but apparently the project only lasted for the one album.
