IHSAN – Arktis

Veröffentlichung:  08.04.2016

Stil:  Black-/Progressive Metal

Label:  Candlelight/Spinefarm/Caroline




Nachdem der Norweger Vegard Sverre Tveitan, oder besser bekannt als IHSAN im Jahre 2013 sein in Deutsch betiteltes Album  „Das Seelenbrechen“ veröffentlichte hat der moderne Sound der Band auch einen Namen – Extreme Progressive-Metal, oder Black- /Progressive Metal. Nun folgt mit dem neuen Album „Aktis“ sein neuestes Werk und mal sehen ob wir nun den Frühling oder den Winter erwarten.

Eins ist schon nach dem ersten Hör-Durchgang klar, IHSAN (Frontmann bei EMPEROR) verpasst uns einen gehörigen Kälteschub, Aber alles der Reihe nach. Das Album startet nach einem kurzen und ruhigem Intro direkt treibend mit „Disassembled“. Mich überrascht vor allem bei diesem Song der Klargesang von IHSAN, der den Song die gewisse Note verleiht und somit zu einem tollen Opener macht. Schon seit letztem Jahr ist der nächste Song „Mass Darkness“ bekannt. Dieser Song steht für sich selbst, extreme und rasante Power und überaus tolle Refrains. In diesem Song beweist uns IHSAN wie kreativ er doch ist. Hier werden wirklich die Limits der Genres ausgelotet.  Eine leichten Flair von Space Rock kann man beim Stück „My Heart Is Of The North“ verzeichnen. Schon nach 3 Songs verbreitet sich wirklich, wie schon der Titel vermuten lässt, die eisige Kälte. Das ist jetzt nicht negativ gemeint, sondern es passt zum Album.

Für sein neues Werk hat IHSAN auch einige Gäste mit ins Boot geholt. Gastauftritte finden sich unter anderem von Einar Solberg (LEPROUS),  Matt Heafy (TRIVIUM), Jørgen Munkeby (Shining (NO)), Tobias Ørnes Andersen (Shining (NO), ex-Leprous) sowie dem norwegischen Autor Hans Herbjornsrud.

Beim Song „Crooked Red Line“ schrieb Jørgen Munkeby einen tollen Saxophon-Teil, der zusammen mit den Metal-Sounds regelrecht erfrischend klingt. Ein wenig befremdlich kommt der Song „Frail“ durch den Einsatz von Synthesizern daher, aber durch gelungene Refrains wandeln sich die befremdlichen Gefühle, die man am Anfang hatte,  in Wohlwollen um. Sehr ruhig kommt „South Winds“ daher. Man kann den Sound nicht so ganz nachvollziehen, aber die beängstigende und schauerliche Atmosphäre reißt das Ganze wieder aus dem Feuer. Das sind halt die grenzwertigen Situationen die man sich Schritt für Schritt erarbeiten muss. Als Abschluss bekommt man mit „Celestial Violence“ einen unter die Haut gehenden Song geboten, der tief verwurzelt haften bleibt.

Als Fazit zu diesem Album kann ich nur feststellen, dass IHSAN mit „Aktis“ ein eiskaltes Album der Extraklasse abgeliefert hat. An keiner Stelle klingt es überladen oder gekünstelt und ich kann wirklich keine Band nennen zu denen ich Parallelen ziehen könnte. In den letzten 10 Jahren hat IHSAN seinen Stil kontinuierlich weiter entwickelt und mit „Arktis“ ist ihm der große Wurf gelungen.

Diejenige, die mit seinem letzten Album „Das Seelenbrechen“ nicht klar kamen, stellt „Arktis“ eine Rückbesinnung auf Power und Experimentierfreudigkeit dar. Starkes Album!
