Ihsahn simply refuses to decelerate. This marks his primary complete album in six years, yet during that period he delivered three EPs and toured with Emperor. This could possibly be his most monumental solo presentation so far. So monumental in reality that he is also unveiling an orchestral rendering of it. Jeff provides a thorough critique here.

Wrapping up this week’s journey with some eerie riffs that will set your head in motion. Witchorious are anything but a one-speed (interpretation: slow) doom band. There is an abundance of energy and tonal dynamics here. Perhaps this is a suitable alternative if the usual lower speed of the subgenre doesn’t resonate with you.
