Enslavement of Beauty is a Symphonic black metal band from Norway. The band combines synthesized instruments with guitars and a somewhat throathy black-metal vocal. The instrumentalizations are very orchestral, rich, and intense. The lyrics are usually concerned with sex and love and generally consist of a very rapid and angry/sad rhyming poetry. The poetry is inspired by Edgar Allan Poe, William Shakespeare and the Marquis de Sade. The Story Enslavement of Beauty was formed in January 1995 by Ole Alexander Myrholt (vocals & lyrics) and Tony Eugene Tunheim (guitars & composing).
