IHSAHN - Pharos Gatefold LP (Black Vinyl)
Regular price €17.99
Overall, Pharos is a satisfying EP that offers five diverse but consistently high-quality songs, and achieves what it promised to deliver: push the boundaries of the more melodic, progressive and experimental elements of Ihsahn’s music. As in the case of its companion EP Telemark, the push is however not too hard, and Pharos does not fall in radically different territories relative to Ihsahn’s previous output. What is remarkable, though, is how Ihsahn managed to create grim atmospheres using a musical palette that is largely comprised of poppy, light-colored tones, showcasing once more his outstanding talents for composing beautifully dark and dramatic music.
