Music Monday – Ihsahn, “Tacit”

Can’t say I’ve been an avid follower of the former Emperor frontman, but I’ve really enjoyed the twisted experimentation of Ihsahn’s recent forays into progressive metal. It’s very organic, but not pleasantly so – which is what I like about it. It’s really harsh, almost offensive, but precisely that harshness creates the contrast which allows the intermittent beauty to make a special impact.

This song is from his most recent album, Das Seelenbrechen (a Nietzschean term, by the way), which was released in October last year.
