Ihsahn - Das Seelenbrechen

About a year after “Eremita”, Ihsahn is back with his fifth solo work which is entitled “Das Seelenbrechen”. The blending of rock, atmospheric, avant-garde, black, extreme, melodic, hard, metal & progressive music still continues on this album.
 
Ihsahn has also got his beloved wife Ihriel (Star of Ash) on vocals by his side and Tobias Ørnes Andersen (Leprous) on drums. The mixing & mastering has once again been done by the renowned Jens Bogren (Opeth, Amon Amarth, Katatonia, Dark Tranquillity, Enslaved tec.). Needless to say, the final result is superb.

Hi Amos… Second release for the band and you really took it one step further… Way to go dude!
 
A: Thanks man. Although not in any way difficult, quite the opposite in fact, it certainly was one of the most stressful records we’ve ever made. Simply because we felt like we had to live up to the expectations we created with our first record. And well both in public and behind the scenes it’s been a tough couple of years, so we’re really happy to have this bad boy out there working for us now!
