Norwegian bassist and vocalist of the Norwegian progressive black metal band Enslaved. Kjellson and Ivar Bjørnson are the founding members and main songwriters of the band.

In 1989, aged 17, Grutle and his 13-year-old friend, guitarist Ivar Bjørnson and other musicians, founded death metal band Phobia, but they left the project in mid-1991. At that time, along with drummer Trym Torson, they decided to form a band inspired by Norse mythology called Enslaved, in Haugesund.

In 1996, Grutle together with Ivar, Infernus and Tormentor created the short-lived thrash metal band Desekrator, disbanded in 1999. In 2005, Grutle along with Ivar, Arve Isdal and other musicians created Trinacria.

Grutle was a guest performer on the song "High on Cold War" on Darkthrone's 2006 EP, Too Old, Too Cold.

He also participated, along with his Enslaved colleagues Arve Isdal and Herbrand Larsen and American actress Laraine Newman, in the animated television series Metalocalypse as one of "The Klokateers" in 2009. He also performed on the TV documentaries Showman (2010) and Metal Evolution (2014).

Kjellson is known for his openly anti-Christian and non-religious views.
