Ihsahn’s newest: “Frozen Lakes on Mars”

The new single, “Frozen Lakes on Mars” from Ihsahn’s newest album, Next, is up on Youtube. This is Ihsahn’s third album in 4 years. He is one of the most prolific artists of our generation (pumping out those releases before the apocalypse — only 2 years, brotha!) and also one of the most inspired. This album sounds like it will be a divergence from the sound he honed on his first two solo releases (The Adversary and Angl — both of which sounded like… “Emperor++” or something). This time he’s using 8-string guitars, layering more guitar tracks than usual, and using new lyrical approaches.

There’s even some sort of grungy metal vibe going on, really interesting clean melodies, etc. He’s already an internationally recognized underground music icon, but if promoted heavily like Meshuggah, this album will make him a hipster darling. If so be his desire!

Looks like it drops at the end of next January.
