IHSAHN Is Surprised Black Metal Artists Aren't Being More Experimental

“I think people will be surprised”

Frank sits down with Ihsahn to go deep about his song writing process, his unconventional way of choosing songs to cover, why he decided to create EP’s at this point in his career, finding inspiration in other genres, the frustration and privilege of writing music for 28 years, why he’s surprised more black metal artists aren’t doing more experimental things in music, his feelings on continuing to reflect on Emperor’s beginning, what to expect from his upcoming Mrityu project with Matt Heafy of Trivium, and much more! Pick up Pharos, the new EP by Ihsahn, available now!
