* UncommonTime: He's a progressive metal artist; what else did you expect? "Called by the Fire" has some examples in its instrumental breaks; large portions of the song are in 7/8. Other examples get more complicated.

* AudioAdaptation: Strangely, he is the third Norwegian metal musician to record a song based on Creator/EdgarAllanPoe's poem "Alone". It's almost become a RunningGag at this point. The other two, in chronological order, were Music/{{Arcturus}} and Music/GreenCarnation.



* EpicRocking: The longer songs span around 8 to 10 minutes. His longest solo songs are "The Pain Is Still Mine" (10:20), "Undercurrent" (10:00), and "On the Shores" (10:13).

* GratuitousGreek: "Astera ton proinon" (or, in the Greek alphabet, "Αστέρα των πρωινών") means "Star of the Morning". Traditionally, this was a name for the planet Venus, and in fact this is one meaning of the Latin word ''lucifer'' (literally, "light-carrying" or "light-bringing", from the words ''lūx'', or ''light'', and ''ferō'', meaning ''carry''), which, of course, is now much more associated with [[{{Satan}} another meaning]]. (The phrase "morning star" also appears in the lyrics, as do the verses of Isaiah 14:12-14, which, as explained on [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lucifer#In_Isaiah_14:12 That Other Wiki]], are the source of the association of the name Lucifer with Satan, particularly Satan before the fall. In Latin, however, the word ''lucifer'' was not associated exclusively with Satan; in fact, it was also used at times to describe UsefulNotes/{{Jesus}}. The word ''lucifer'' in turn was הֵילֵל (Helel) in the original Hebrew, literally meaning "shining one" or "light-bearer".)
