LONG AWAITED STUNNING NEW ALBUM FROM EMPEROR FRONTMAN IHSAHN
OPETH frontman Mikael Åkerfeldt has recorded a guest appearance on the track "Unhealer" from the forthcoming solo album from former EMPEROR vocalist/guitarist Ihsahn, entitled "angL". Ihsahn commented: "We've been talking about doing something for a while and I'm really happy it finally came together. Needless to say, Mikael's performance is nothing short of amazing!" Asgeir Mickelson and Lars Norberg (both of SPIRAL ARCHITECT) were responsible for laying down the drum and bass tracks on the CD, respectively. Ihsahn said, "Asgeir and Lars have delivered a rock-solid foundation for the whole album. Pounding blast-beats to slow fretless passages are all performed with great precision." "angL" is tentatively due mid-spring via Mnemosyne Productions/Candlelight Records. Ihsahn previously described the musical direction of the new CD as "a natural progression from 'The Adversary' , but with a somewhat heavier touch."
