Shapeshifting progressive metal pioneer Ihsahn will release ‘Pharos’, the second of two contrasting-yet-intertwined EPs, on September 11th 2020 via Candlelight Records.
The light to Telemark’s dark, ‘Pharos’ 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 by British trip-hop collective Portihead.
Recorded at his home studio, with additional drums by Tobias Solbakk at Jukes Joint Studio, Pharos is musically and conceptually a reverse image of Telemark (the first of the two linked EPs, released back in February of this year.)
The first single, ‘Spectre At The Feast’, is now available worldwide. Watch the official video here: https://youtu.be/GvUJZygvCRk
