What's new?


And he’s released a brand new single to accompany it! Woo hoo!

Easily one of my favourite albums of 2016, Ihsahn’s Arktis was an absolutely fantastic release. Never one to repeat himself, the man understands more than anyone the development of  music as a whole and has created some of the most avant garde pieces of work to date and now come May 4th, Ihsahn will unveil his latest solo masterwork that is Àmr.

Celebrating the records announcement today the band are also unveiling a brand new track “Arcana Imperii“. Among others, the song itself features Opeth guitarist extraordinaire Fredrik Akesson. Epitomising the most important elements throughout Àmr, “Arcana Imperii” surmises the theme of the new record. Recorded in Ihsahn’s own Mnemosyne Studios bar drums, alongside mastering by the legend that is Jens Bogren.

Leaving orchestration, this record promises to be more focused on synthesisers pushing the man’s sound forward ever further. Personally the level of experimentation that was present on Arktis was enough to satisfy most but you know the man has no bounds! I cannot tell you how excited I am for this release and I’m sure that it’ll be one of the most intriguing releases of 2018.
