This is Ihsahn and Ihriel's (Starofash) collaboration with Knut Buen, a famous Norwegian folk musician. So, this is literally folk-metal. I know some of you guys dont like Ihsahn's solo album, but I like what I have heard of his later Emperor, I really like The Adversary, and I think this project is another step away from the black metal world, which can be very restricting at times.
Give it a listen and share your thoughts.
This album is set for release 11th of June 2007, through MNEMOSYNE PRODUCTIONS
