BBC Radio One Rock Show strikes again, this time with a new track by the name of ‘Hiber‘ from none other than living legend Ihsahn. It’s an extremely proggy affair, with plenty of the juddering and off-kilter rhythms that pervaded what I would say was his true masterpiece After.
You can listen to the track here, skip to roughly 21:45 in to hear it directly (and keep listening because they have pop-sludgers Torche in session too). Honestly, this has me hugely excited for what Das Seelenbrechen has to offer — if they can capture that After meets ‘Contaminate Me‘ from the latest Leprous album feel for the rest of the album you can bet your limited edition first-pressing Emperor vinyl that it will be infiltrating many a year-end list. With the October 21st release date steadily approaching, we thankfully won’t have to wait too long to find out.
