Ihsahn Announces 2nd EP of 2020, “Pharos,” Shares “Spectre at the Feast”
Earlier this year, Emperor frontman Ihsahn released the Telemark EP, the most straight-up black metal record he'd put out in a long time, and he had told Prog ahead of Telemark's release that "the plan is to then follow up this EP with its aesthetic and musical counterpart, wherein I can distill all those more progressive, experimental and mellow elements of my music. Ultimately, it’s all a means for me to get some of those ideas out of my system, giving myself space before I delve into the next album!" Now he has announced that "more progressive, experimental and mellow" EP, Pharos, which is due September 11th via Candlelight, and released its lead single "Spectre at the Feast." The EP also includes a Portishead cover and a song featuring Einar Solberg of Leprous.
Listen to the new song:
1. Losing Altitude
2. Spectre At The Feast
4. Roads (Portishead cover)
5. Manhattan Skyline (feat. Einar Solberg of Leprous)
