Norwegian metal legend Ihsahn will release his fourth solo record, Eremita, on June 18 2012.
Eremita will feature performances from drummer Tobias Ornes Andersen (Leprous), guitarist Jeff Loomis (ex-Nevermore) and saxophonist Jørgen Munkeby (Shining-Norway). Along with vocal features from Devin Townsend, Einar Solberg (Leprous) and Heidi S. Tveitan (Starofash). The album was recorded at Telemark’s Ivory Shoulder Studios and was mixed by Jens Bogren (Opeth) at Fascination Street Studios in Örebro, Sweden.
Ihsahn commented: "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.”
