IHSAHN is a name that is synonymous with the Worldwide metal scene; a musical visionary who’s creativity is unparalleled and influence is far reaching. IHSAHN will make his live debut in Australia this May.

Quite possibly one of the most important, influential and creative forces within the realms of Black and Extreme metal music – IHSAHN stands a class apart – an artist unafraid of experimenting and creating some of the most timeless music ever heard.

The Norwegian multi-instrumentalist, composer and vocalist, hailing from Notodden, (Norway) began his musical career at the age of 13. What began as an ardent passion towards music, soon grew into one of the world’s most significant black metal bands, EMPEROR. Progressing and evolving quickly, at 17, he recorded and performed the incredible ‘In The Nightside Eclipse’, a milestone and landmark album in the history of metal, which has been voted many times over as one of the top metal albums of all time. Years on and countless recordings later, IHSAHN is still at the forefront of the genre, the fire still burning.

IHSAHN has divided his time between the metal and avant-garde worlds in projects like EMPEROR, THOU SHALT SUFFER, PECCATUM, HARDINGROCK and last but not least his ongoing solo vessel, IHSAHN. May 7th will be the first time Australia witnesses the sheer magnificence, and elegant yet brutal persona of one of the most iconic musicians in the metal world.
