Ihsahn To Release “Fascination Street Sessions” EP In March

Ihsahn (Emperor) has announced a new EP titled “Fascination Street Sessions.” The effort was recorded with producer Jens Bogren at Fascination Street Studios in Örebro, Sweden and it will be released on March 24 in partnership with the URM Academy‘s online music production educational program.

“Fascination Street Sessions” Track Listing:

01. “The Observer” (feat. Øystein H. Aadland)
02. “Contorted Monuments”
03. “Dom Andrea” (Kent cover) (feat. Jonas Renske)

Ihsahn commented:

“The idea was to capture high-end recordings of real instruments in great rooms, and we had an amazing setup for drums, guitars, bass, and even a vintage Hammond organ with Leslie, Wurlitzer, Rhodes, etc., recorded through Fender combos and analogue pedals etc.

This was an amazing experience, and very educational, as I love everything related to music production. Both the Fascination Street and URM teams were incredible, and I believe everyone involved had a great time, in spite of 14–16 hour workdays.

I’m very happy with how everything came together and for those interested in the technical aspects of how it was made, there will be a thorough course coming soon at URM Academy.”

The effort’s first single, “Contorted Monuments,” can be found below:
