In The Studio With Former EMPEROR Frontman IHSAHN; Video Available has just posted part two of its four-part Norwegian metal mini-documentary.

The footage was captured over four days in March 2008 when MetalKult editors Brad Angle and Jimmy Hubbard traveled to Oslo, Norway.

In episode two, MetalKult travel into the mountainous Telemark County to Notodden, where they visit with EMPEROR vocalist/guitarist Ihsahn at his Symphonique Studios.

In this exclusive footage, Ihsahn gives MetalKult's cameras a private tour of the gear he used to create his latest solo album, "angL" (Candlelight/Mnemosyne).

As previously reported, Ihsahn has posted two songs from his just-released second solo album, "angL", on his MySpace page. Check out the tracks "Misanthrope" and "Emancipation" at this location.

An e-card for "angL" is available at this location.

OPETH frontman Mikael kerfeldt has recorded a guest appearance on the track "Unhealer" while Asgeir Mickelson and Lars Norberg (both of SPIRAL ARCHITECT) were responsible for laying down the drum and bass tracks on the CD, respectively.

Ihsahn previously described the musical direction of the new CD as "a natural progression from 'The Adversary' [2006], but with a somewhat heavier touch."
