This is a fan group for those who have witnessed the greatness of Ihsahn's music!

Biography Just thirty years of age, Ihsahn has traveled far beyond his rural beginnings. In little more than a decade, the largely self-taught musician has amassed a resume that when combined exceeds more than three quarters of a million worldwide album sales. His cumulative professional accolades include a 2001 Spelleman (Norwegian Grammy) Award nomination, 2003 Notodden City Cultural Award, and countless "Best of" class honors in internationally respected metal and rock magazines including Terrorizer, Metal Maniacs, Revolver, Kerrang!, Guitar World and many more. Now the former Emperor vocalist/guitarist steps outside the comforts of an ensemble or collaboration and commands for the first time his most challenging project - a solo career.

His first solo album The Adversary was released in April 2006. All work was done by him with the exception of percussion, which was done by Asgeir Mickelson (Borknagar, Vintersorg etc.). It showcases his progressive influences as well as heavy metal, black metal and classical music. The album was recorded at Symphonique Studios in Norway and is to be released on his label Mnemosyne Productions, which was formed in 2003 with Ihriel. Same thing with his second solo album, angL. Two years later his second solo album was released. He did two live shows in Norway, and then went on to the next album. With the release of After he completed a musical trilogy in 2010.

As well as being a talented musician, Tveitan is also a capable artist and once considered doing the artwork for a Thou Shalt Suffer album. He presently lives in Notodden, Norway with his wife and one dog, an Akita Inu. He also teaches music at the local school.

Leprous is Ihsahn's live band.

    I saw this genius live at Brutal Assault 2010 and it was one of the highlights of my musically-positive life. I am so sorry that I didn't know his work earlier so I missed the Emperor reunite tour. Now I would give almost anything for an opportunity to see Emperor live. I doubt it will ever happen yet still I hope. No, still I dream...

    Join the fresh group which thinks that if Vintersorg, ICS Vortex and Ihsahn form a band, they would totally destroy the world

    He tops himself with every release. I can't wait to see where he goes next.

    Moody and melodic metal with progressive flow and harsh vocals. Melancholy with cutting edge - Nodding Sky from Finland.

    Adding to the previous, I only regret having discovered him and his music so late; I missed the Emperor era completely. (I wasn't properly into metal by 2001, and even around the time of the "reunion tour" my music taste was still limited to some rather embarrassing stuff.) Now I keep watching videos of the Wacken 2006 show and feeling sorry for myself for having missed something so awesome. ._.

    Saw him at Tuska festival in Helsinki a few weeks ago for the first time. And as soon as I got home, I started making plans to go see him in London on August 19th. His music is something larger than life. There's not enough words in the dictionary to describe it.

    That 'On the Shores' performance you've linked to in the PM is purely awesome. Thank you for it.

    He is truly a talented musician. I`ve watched all the new videos he added to youtube to promote after and I apperciate him putting the Emperor tab books out, since sometimes it is hard to find an accurate version of some of those tabs out there. His songs and guitar work are so complex, and inspiring.

    Ihsahn is my favorite musician ever. Been a fan since about 1996 when I first discovered Emperor. I own all his work and I can't wait to see where he goes next now that he is done with his solo trilogy. A true artist who is never held back by popular opinion and pours all his heart and passion into his work. In addition to that he teaches music and puts up money for concerts for young bands. Truly worthy of admiration in all respects.
