5.0 out of 5 stars Ihsahn reimagines the rules of metal once again, 14 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Eremita [limited] (Audio CD)
EREMITA is without the shadow of a doubt Ihsahn's most ambitious work to date. He continues to prove his evolution as a musician and artist on a release that will surely turn some heads in the world of not only metal, but even avant-garde music. With unorthodox instrumentation and his impeccable sense for composition Ihsahn lets the listener in on a strange journey of both insanity and beauty.

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.
