Buen disco el "Adversary" pero me parece que con "Angl" se fue al re carajo. Tendra que ser muy bueno el nuevo disco para superarlo (aunque ya ha demostrado que puede)

Estoy odiando a unas cuantas personas, y mucho....

Son unos soretes...ya escucharon el disco y yo que me babeo por él y aún no lo consigo Razz

Por lo que veo, creo que el disco me va a gustar muchisimo. Twisted Evil

Being the third solo record of former Emperor mainman Ihsahn, After is the most ambitious and experimental effort.

The name Ihsahn should be familiar to metal fans as most know him as the vocalist/main songwriter from the legendary Norwegian black metal band Emperor. Since Emperor has been laid to rest, Ihsahn has concentrated on a solo career that is more in the vain of a progressive/experimental side, while mixing in some of the elements Emperor was known for. To date he has released two solo albums - The Adversary and angL and the third release After is similar to those but also embraces more elements that are outside the box.

After is somewhat of a journey travelling down a winding musical road at one moment, it can be insane black metal, then at the next turn it can be ambient and laid-back. The opener The Barren Lands opens with a beautiful lush-like picked guitar passage which segues into a heavy, dominant rhythm piece with Ihsahn delivering some vocals in his own and unique way. It contrasts perfectly with the music; then he changes gears into a haunting clean vocal passage which sends chills down the spine.

As mentioned, After divides itself between a black metal side and a progressive/atmospheric side. The black metal side is well represented in A Grave Inversed and Heavens Black Sea, whereas the progressive side is more apparent in the title track After, Austere and Frozen Lakes On Mars - the haunting organ lines in Austere sound beautifully evil.

But the centrepieces are the two 10-minute-long tracks in Undercurrent and On The Shores. They both respectively combine all the elements achieved within the other tracks into two seperate pieces with a level of grandeur that really has to be heard to be fully understood.

Performance-wise, it seems that there was meticulous detail instilled within the performance and execution of the music, and it shows. Everything sits together perfectly within the mix (courtesy of producer Jens Bogren - Opeth, Katatonia, Universum) without individually dominating. The same rhythm section has been utilised from the angL sessions in Spiral Architect members bassist Lars Norberg and drummer Asgeir Mickelson, who are the perfect musical backbone to Ihsahn's compositions, keeping the low end running smoothly and precisely.

There is also a special guest contributor on saxophone: Jorgen Munkeby, who adds a fresh element such as spiralling away with an amazing solo in A Grave Inversed and adds textures to Undercurrent, Heavens Black Sea and On The Shores.

When it comes to the main man himself, Ihsahn has stepped up his game, the guitar rhythms sound tighter and heavier due to the inclusion of eight-string guitars, the lead passages sound tight and fluid. His vocals, when in black metal, are reminiscent of vintage Emperor, and his clean vocals contrast well in comparison.

The only thing that could detract a listener is that there is can be too much of certain elements at times. For example, there could be too much black metal for the progressive fans, and too many progressive elements for the pure black metal fans. But for a listener with varied tastes and an open ear, After will provide much musical enjoyment and exploration warranting more listens. This could truly be the stand out record of his solo career, time will tell.




http://www.metalreview.com/5360/Ihsahn-After.aspx escribió:
Vegard Sverre Tveitan has been a mainstay of the vast metal underground for over 15 years. At the ripe age of 17, he helped to write and record the groundbreaking self-titled EP with Emperor, a band in which he was the undisputed leader of composition and direction. He later added to the avant-garde style with the family act Peccatum, featuring the nightingale vocals of his wife. However, after years of genre-defining and expanding, the man known as Ihsahn surprisingly reined it in for his solo career. The Adversary was basically a toned-down version of later Emperor mixed with the classic metal sounds of bands like Mercyful Fate. A quality album, but eclipsed by 2008’s AngL, which found the man very comfortable in his new shoes leading a solo act. But even that album’s display of blackened prog virtuosity felt rather comfortable, as if Ihsahn’s days of widening extreme metal’s horizons were behind him.

This is why After is such a shocking (and welcome) surprise. Not only does it repeat the jump in quality that AngL made, but it is Ihsahn’s most experimental and forward-thinking work since the demise of Peccatum, and easily the most individualistic work of his entire career. From the shifting dynamics and unorthodox song structures to the holistic vision and prominent use of saxophone (that’s right, saxophone), After unveils a brave new Mr. Tveitan, one who has rediscovered his genius and reignited the creative flame under his arse.

Despite the publicized switch to 8-string guitars, many of the musical elements will be familiar to fans. There are plenty of half black/half prog riffs, harsh and clean vocals, and splashes of neo-classicism. However, Ihsahn has added to and advanced this musical palette with a superior sense of album flow and variety. The difference is instantly apparent as opener “The Barren Lands” is notably less aggressive and more atmospheric than overtures of past albums. Then he gives the listener a meat hook whiplash with the downright twisted “A Grave Inversed,” a layered stew of black metal riffs, off-kilter blast beats, and an utterly insane use of saxophone. Think La Masquerade Infernale written by a technical black metal version of Arcturus. The shifts continue through the moody title track (the one song that would have felt at home on The Adversary), and into the thrash-tinged “Frozen Lakes on Mars,” a delightfully catchy end to the album’s first act.

If Act I of After shows off Ihsahn’s heightened sense of songwriting approach and variety, the second act is where he adamantly and finally states to all of metaldom that his solo career is no mere Emperor afterthought. The largest statement comes in the form of the ten minute “Undercurrent,” which builds slowly over it’s first third until a heart-wrenching saxophone melody brings the album to a soaring emotional peak. The song soon shifts into full prog, making the most out of repetitive guitar patterns through shifts in vocals, rhythm, and the drumming subtlety of Asgeir Mickelson (who is absolutely on fire here). A return to the sax melody reveals just how essential the instrument is to the emotional heft of After. It sometimes emulates the traits of tremolo-picked guitar and is elsewhere used as a substitute for keyboards, but it is when the sax is employed as an additional, wordless vocalist that it is most effective. Jorgen Munkeby puts on an utterly tortured performance, miles away from the pretentious use of the instrument elsewhere in metal.

Most albums would lie down and rest after such a song. After does not. Following are the beautiful, understated “Austere” and the imposing, minor key “Heavens Black Sea,” the latter of which throws down the gauntlet of heaviness, intimidation, and majesty. Album finale “On the Shores” bookends a few more minutes of progressive insanity with a reprise of the saxophone wail from “Undercurrent,” a small yet expert move which glues the entire album together into much more than the sum of its parts.

Some will choose to place the same criticisms here that have been given to Ihsahn’s past solo work. Those who have had issues with his harsh vocal style will likely still have them. The bass, while higher in the mix than in the past, is still less than prominent (and the only complaint about a very stellar mixing job). But these issues are inconsequential to Ihsahn’s resounding success in achieving his vision, while simultaneously taking his solo career to brilliant new levels. Even the most jaded listener is strongly urged to give After its fair shake. It is yet another masterful achievement from a man who has made a career out of them. We’re not even in 2010 yet and the early bar for the year has already been set. The ball is in your court, everyone else.

More and more, it becomes clear that vocalist/guitarist Ihsahn was the evil genius which spawned so much of the great work that his previous band, Emperor, produced. Back for his third solo album AFTER, it's clear that Ihsahn has taken a direct path to challenging great musical minds of the past with his creative genius. AFTER is to the world of extreme metal what CHUNGA'S REVENGE was to the ever-stretching boundaries that Frank Zappa challenged so many years ago. To be clear, AFTER is NOT a simple listen at all, but a release that challenges on multiple levels throughout.

Certainly, comparing creativity to someone like Frank Zappa is big praise, but Ihsahn has proven over the course of his three solo efforts to be worth such praise. Listening to songs like "A Grave Inverted", you can't help but wonder where the direction comes from. The song, which is one part black metal and two parts Mr. Bungle for lack of a proper definition, provides a blueprint for what AFTER is throughout. From song to song, AFTER has all the elements that fans of extreme metal will love. Conversely though, there's so much diversity from song to song that AFTER takes you on a wild ride. Songs like "Frozen Lakes On Mars" are fairly straight forward metal thrashers; seemingly built out of the Chimaira mold at the beginning before radically shifting to an almost Alice In Chains-like bridge. This shift is so stark that you literally feel like your ears have been in a car accident. Other songs, such as "After", have a more dulled luster that a band like Katatonia would employ in much of their work, yet is explosive in parts by it's own right. Musically, AFTER takes the listener on a long ride that branches in a lot of different directions.

If there is a consistency, it's that Ihsahn himself displays much more solid vocals and guitar work than ever before. When he's doing his black metal wailing, it's as strong as anyone's in the genre. Yet, his lower toned crooning voice is impressive as well. Songs like "Undercurrent" drive home the fact that Ihsahn has a great voice that was hidden for so many years behind his banshee-like screaming that he did with Emperor. As for his guitar playing, every style you can imagine is showcased here. There are moments that will conjure thoughts of Meshuggah playing in a standard timing. There are almost 80s era power solos on some songs. There's downtuned riffing in parts, and there's acoustic grace in other areas. In short, Ihsahn is showcasing himself as a complete player on AFTER.

PITRIFF RATING - 9/10 - It's hard to consider someone with the immense musical profile of Ihsahn as underrated, but that's exactly what he's proving out to be as time goes by. AFTER is not your typical extreme metal album. The incorporation of horns and various odd sounds alone guarantees that. If AFTER is anything though, it's one of the most challenging metal experiences any listener will ever undertake. This is a tremendous effort from Emperor's former mainman that stands as proof positive that his decision to branch away from his past was a good decision.

Todavía no lo escuchaste? Wink

Yo lo tengo en el mp3 y me lo paso escuchando Wink
Muy buen disco, últimamente me gusta más la voz limpia que los growls de Ihsahn.

No sé si decir que es mejor que el anterior, ya que ese disco me había encantado.

El saxo queda extraño, pero en algunas canciones queda muy bien.

No tiene ese sonido tan "Opeth" como tenia el disco anterior...y es que el productor de éste es el mismo que el de Opeth y Katatonia.

yo llevo escuchando el nuevo disco varias semanas, y es increible!!!
DISCAZO, mejor q todos sus trabajos anteriores, la bateria y bajo suenen impresionantes.. los arreglos de saxo al principio son dificiles de digerir, pero con el tiempo me di cuenta q quedan excelente, tambien hasta solos de teclado tiene. La voz limpia de ihsahn suena exclente y la voz black tambien (como siempre), los coros con voz limpia son hermosos... para mi es un disco perfecto.
10000% recomendable!!
