Ihsahn - Telemark (EP)

This excellent metal music album was released on February 14, 2020. Ihsahn is kind of going into unfamiliar territory here. This is the first of 2 five-track EPs inspired by and dedicated his home county of Telemark. The first "Telemark" EP represents the dark, brutal and aggressive side of Ihsahn's compositional identity. The label is Spinefarm Records UK.

Ihsahn is a Norwegian composer, multi-instrumentalist, and vocalist. He is best known for his work with the Norwegian black metal band Emperor. Tveitan is also a founding member of Thou Shalt Suffer. This is where he played guitar and keyboard in addition to vocal duties, and Peccatum, a project in collaboration with his wife and fellow musician Heidi Solberg Tveitan, also known as Starofash. Since 2006, Tveitan has primarily devoted himself to solo albums and occasional guest appearances.

Beyond the typical metal music sounds, Tveitan's musical style also includes classical, industrial, and progressive elements. He is a progenitor of the symphonic black metal genre. Emperor's final album, Prometheus: The Discipline of Fire & Demise, composed by Ihsahn, epitomizes the genre.
