Press release (Spin Go!):
The progressive metal pioneer IHSAHN today announces Pharos, the second of two EPs connected, but affixed to each other, to be released on 11 September on Candlelight Records / Spinefarm.
Compared to the dark atmospheres of the previous EP Telemark released at the beginning of the year, Pharos is rich in light and contains three original compositions and two covers: a delicate but faithful version of the original “Manhattan Skyline” by the Norwegians A-HA (with participation in the voice of Einar Solberg of Leprous) and the spooky “Roads” of the British trip-hop band PORTISHEAD.
Recorded in his home studio with drum parts by Tobias Solbakk at the Jukes Joint Studio, Pharos is musically and conceptually the opposite of Telemark (released in February).
The first single “Specter At The Feat” is available now.
Pharos is another great triumph for one of the most important founders of black metal; this Norwegian composer, who lent his iconoclastic spirit and his great skills to numerous bands and projects, has once again woven intricate soundscapes that make him a true alchemist of music.
