Eremita will be Ishsahn’s fourth solo album and the follow up to 2010’s After, which was the final album in a planned trilogy, so this is a bit of a new beginning musically. The release is planned for June 19, 2012 under Candlelight Records.
Ihsahn recently had the following to say about recording the album:
“This is right where I want to be musically, with lots of room for dynamics and expressive variety. Tobias and Jørgen have really added to the organic vibe I was going for and have contributed to the overall feel with their fantastic musicianship. And to have Devin, Jeff, Einar and Heidi adding their special moments, I am very privileged to be able to work with such a talented group of people. I really feel this is some of my most inspired work yet.”
