Norwegian metaller Ihsahn has announced his new EP, ‘Pharos,’ which is set for release on September 11th through Candlelight Records (pre-order).
The impending effort marks the follow-up to Ihsahn’s February 2020 EP titled ‘Telemark,’ and was recorded at the Emperor frontman’s home studio with additional drum work by Tobias Solbakk at Jukes Joint Studio.
Here’s more info from today’s announcement:
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.
Indeed, Pharos is the light to Telemark‘s dark. It 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 recorded by British trip-hop collective PORTISHEAD.
The first single off ‘Pharos’ titled “Spectre At The Feast” has been revealed and is available for streaming below.
‘Pharos’ track listing:
“Spectre At The Feast ”
“Roads” (Portishead Cover)
“Manhattan Skyline” (A-Ha Cover Featuring Einar Solberg of Leprous)
