Norway’s Ihsahn finishes up his Australian tour here in Perth at Amplifier, supported by Perth’s Bolt Gun and Snorri.

Ihsahn and his band hit the stage and wowed the crowd for what felt like a much shorter show than expected but none the less powerful.

The musicianship was faultless and it consumed the room. Compared with the other shows on this tour, it was not a sell out at Perth, but the death metal scene was well represented all the same. It is difficult to even begin to pigeon hole his sound as it takes over for a definitive atmospheric experience – and a brutal one not for the faint hearted, which perhaps only fans can understand and relate to.

The set list included Emperor’s I Am The Black Wizards – the Emperor fans in the audience making themselves known – however the focus was on the latest release. Great show and I’m positive he will grace the west side with his presence again soon.

Set List

Lend Me The Eyes Of Millenia
Arcana Imperii
Samr
Until I Too Dissolve
My Heart is of the North
Frozen Lakes on Mars
I Am The Black Wizards (Emperor song)
Pulse
The Grave
