Throughout the chat, we discuss the impact of Anthems to the Welkin at Dusk, and Isahn shares his thoughts on the album’s accomplishment of being #1 on the independent charts in Australia. He talks about Emperor’s later career albums IX Equilibrium and Prometheus and his solo material. You’ll learn if Ihsahn believes there is a difference between the Ihsahnsolo material fan and the Emperor fan, his view on becoming a guitar-playing icon and why he feels the guitar is a medium for him to create. He also shares his view on Rammstein and Ghost. We conducted the conversation before Emperor’s shows in Sydney and Melbourne in April 2019, and it has been available via the Scars and Guitars podcast apps since. This is the first time the chat has been posted to YouTube.
