Recorded and produced at Telemarks Ivory Shoulder Studios, with additional tracking completed at Notoddens Juke Joint Studio and Seattles Envisage Audio, Eremita was mixed by Jens Bogren (Opeth) at Fascination Street Studios in Orebo, Sweden. Alongside Ihsahn, the album features performances from drummer Tobias Ornes Andersen (Leprous), saxophonist Jorgen Munkeby (Shining-Norway), guitarist Jeff Loomis (ex-Nevermore), and vocalists Devin Townsend, Einar Solberg (Leprous), and Heidi S. Tveitan (StarofAsh).

As a fan of both Ihsahn's earlier band, Emperor, as well as his solo career I enjoyed EREMITA a lot. Is it my favorite release by him? I can't tell yet, but it certainly has the potential.
If you're a fan of Ihsahn's previous solo efforts (The Adversary, angL, After) then EREMITA is an obvious must buy for you. It will give you everything from those albums and even more. However, if you're more of an Empreror fan who never really got into his solo endeavors I can't recommend this as warmly. If you didn't enjoy his previous three albums, chances are you're going to feel the same about this record, despite the fact that it does boast a few Emperor moments.
All in all, EREMITA is a breath-taking effort and it's definitely worth checking out if you enjoy advanced, intelligent and honest music. Ihsahn isn't your common metal musician. He is probably one of the most prominent composers of modern music today.
The use of guest musicians on this album keeps it fresh, the drums are by Tobias Ornes and the epic squealing sax by Jorgen Munkeby (all hail Shining Nor), which is on many of the tracks and just makes everything more epic and bring on this almost improvised jazz feel. There is guitar solo by Jeff Loomis on 'The Eagle and the Snake', clean vocals by Devin Townsend on 'Introspection', Female vocals on 'Departure' by Heidi S. Tveitan and clean vocals by Einar Solberg on 'Arrival'.
With tracks such as 'The Paranoid' nodding to Emperor's frantic black metal past, its impressive to see Ihsahns progression. I look foreword to his upcoming album 'Das Seelenbrechen', buy this if you love experimental or progressive metal. Especially if you are trying to get into the genre or black metal.
