Ihsahn is premiering his new video for Arcana Imperii exclusively with Metal Hammer.

Arcana Imperii is the first single to be taken from Ihsahn’s upcoming album Àmr, and features a guitar solo by Opeth’s Fredrik Åkesson.

“As with previous albums, I’ve tried to maintain a certain diversity throughout Àmr, with every track having a somewhat individual identity,” says Ihsahn. “So, as a first introduction, I felt Arcana Imperii contained several key elements from the whole album and was a logical choice as first single and video.”

Ihsahn’s forthcoming album Àmr is due to be released on May 4 via Candlelight/Spinefarm.
