IHSAHN - Reveal Details About New EP, New Single And Video Released

Shapeshifting dark progressive metal pioneer Ihsahn will release Pharos, the second of two contrasting-yet-intertwined EP's, on 11th September via Candlelight Records. Pharos is another triumph for one of the proud initiators of black metal; this polymathic composer, who has already leant his iconoclastic spirit to rule-breaking bands and projects, has yet again woven intricate, sonic landscapes that cement his status as a true musical alchemist.

The light to Telemark's dark, Pharos features three original compositions and two covers; a delicate but true-to-the-original version of "Manhattan Skyline" by Norway's own pop progenitors A-HA (featuring Leprous frontman Einar Solberg on vocal duties) and the haunting "Roads", originally by British trip-hop collective Portishead.
Recorded at his home studio, with additional drums by Tobias Solbakk at Jukes Joint Studio, Pharos is musically and conceptually a reverse image of Telemark (the first of the two linked EP's, released back in February of this year). The first single, "Spectre At The Feast", is now available worldwide. Watch the official video in the player below. Link
