5 stars Amazing debut.

I'm going to keep this short and sweet, seeing that Trickster just about covered it.

Ihsahn should be a familiar name to fans of Emperor or Peccatum, and for those wondering how he would fare with a solo project, you can stop worrying. Ihsahn stunned me with this new album. Marketed as "Emperor meets King Crimson", The Adversary is everything you've come to expect from this Norwegian genius. Ihsahn plays every instrument but drums, and he plays them well. This album drips pure emotion, and Ihsahn puts his heart into every track. Two personal favorites are "And He Shall Walk In Empty Places" as well as the towering epic "The Pain Is Still Mine". Everything clicks on this record, the production is superb, and Ihsahn blows his critics out of the water. Near the top of my list for prog-metal album of 2006.
