RIITIIR, occasionally typeset as “RIITIIЯ,” is the twelfth studio album from the Norwegian extreme metal band Enslaved. It was released on September 28, 2012 in Europe and on October 9, 2012 in North America.

The name RIITIIR is Ivar Bjørnson’s “Norse-ified” take on the words “Rites/Rituals”, or “The Rites of Man”, and rituals form the central concept of the album.

The album received positive reviews from music critics, and sold around 2,300 copies in its first week of release in the United States, which made it their highest debuting album to date in terms of sales.
