angL is the second full-length solo album of Emperor frontman Ihsahn. Writing began in early 2007, after Ihsahn had completed touring with Emperor. The album was recorded around December 2007 and released on 26 May 2008. Unhealer" (Mikael Åkerfeldt on lead vocals) – 6:17. Emancipation" – 5:27. Morningstar" (Japanese Bonus Track) – 4:49.
Still retaining the elements of what Ihsahn brought to Emperor, but venturing into more territory as seen by the appearance of michael from Opeth another band that has progressed/evolved throughout the years. This release as well as all future material by Ihsahn is for the more open minded fan of music rather than closed in box mentality of sum of the more die-hard black metal fans. However i will say that whole closed mindedness was not what black metal was supposed to be like the original vision of black metal was to be completely free from barriers, while being heavy.
版公司 Candlelight Records Mnemosyne Productions. Ihsahn can comfortably be defined as a musical genius, a virtuoso and progenitor of 4 of the finest metal albums ever to appear on the radar of this writer’s musical experience. Every Emperor release was a masterclass in technicality, atmosphere, arrangement and inspiration. In the Nightside Eclipse’ is a cornerstone of my listening evolution, the black metal album that got me into it, as its scope and delivery was just so impressive to me. But what since Emperor’s self-inflicted demise ?

Ihsahn's second album, angL, has slowly but surely become one of my more played metal albums. The man behind the legendary Emperor really has some diverse talent, and it shows here. The music here is incredibly varied and a testament to Ihsahn and his ability as a songwriter. Make no mistake, I loved The Adversary. It was everything it should have been, catchy, memorable, stupidly over the top (in a King Diamond sort of way). It was a great album, and knowing Ihsahn’s consistent output, I expected great things from angL (seriously, GET A BETTER NAME). I’ve been terribly let down though, because angL is everything the previous album wasn’t.
Ihsahn's second solo album, angL, maintains the symphonic black metal orientation that the Norwegian vocalist favored on his previous solo outing, The Adversary, and while black metal is angL's main ingredient, there are certainly many other influences as well. Among them: power metal, progressive metal, death metal, and gothic metal. angL is very focused, but at the same time, Ihsahn is even more unpredictable and far-reaching on this 47-minute CD than he was on The Adversary.
Experience a hugely innovative and experimental sound pulled off with great aplomb and skill. Experience a hugely innovative and experimental sound pulled off with great aplomb and skill. Ihsahn is undoubtedly a force to be reckoned with. In terms of black metal, not many people can say that he hasn't had a profound impact on the scene - Emperor are regarded as one of the greatest black metal bands ever to exist, and rightfully so.
Lead Vocals – Mikael Åkerfeldt
