New Ihsahn Song! New Ihsahn Song!
The Emperor of Emperor’s new song, “Hiber,” is another predictably unpredictable, typically a-typical prog doozy. The opening track from the new Ihsahn album, Das Seelenbrechen, and, fittingly, the first track from the album released to the public, it starts out as a fair traditional, evil-sounding metal song, then quickly takes a turn for the psychedelic with Doppler-effected keyboard that sound like Ray Manzarek recording music for Castlevania, and then it quickly takes another turn into the realm of jagged rhythms and other meshugganah Meshuggah-esque forms of music dorkery.
You’re gonna love it.
Listen to “Hiber” here (skip to 21:45), then come back to discuss it on our comments section. Das Sealisbroken comes out October 22 on Candlelight.
