Ihsahn's latest effort, After is a make or break affair for the long term die hard fan. While this album has gotten heavier with lots of heavy palm muting and crushing tone, it has gotten more experiemntal as well, with lots of saxophone playing included in the songs. Ihsahn introduces the utilisation of an 8-string guitar for the recording of this album, making the overall sound of the album even heavier than before.

Ain't nothing wrong with sax in metal. Just ask Amorphis and Sigh.

...and Shining! I believe the same saxophonist from Ishahn's album is the saxophonist from Shining. Great stuff like you said Patriot.

Yeah I found nothing wrong with Ihsahn's new album. The Barren Lands is awesome.

not saying that there was anything wrong about bringing in a sax in metal, just saying that out of the thousands of metal bands that are out there, how many actually brought in a sax and not sound cheesy?

dont just name me a few bands cos the proportion of it compared to the overall number of metal bands is still very small, perhaps even <;1%.

A really great album, Ihsahn just gets better with every release in my opinion.
