Vegard Sverre Tveitan (aka Ihsahn) is my boy. He's best known for his work with the Norwegian black metal band Emperor. He's been doing the one-man thing under his stage name for a while now and plays a progressive/avant-garde style. He does both clean and growled/unclean vocals, both of which I enjoy.

I own several of his albums, After and everything from Das Seelenbrechen onwards. They're all very good, but the accessibility of Arktis makes it my current favorite of his and my recommended starting point for anyone just getting into him. Àmr is very good as well - it almost sounds like a continuation of Arktis.

It's difficult for me to describe his music in words. Have a listen and judge for yourself.
