Eventually there comes a time when the hype about a band becomes superfluous, and their status alone speaks volumes. volumes. Such is the case with Emperor, the black metal gods hailing from Telemark, Norway.

Emperor has become known as one of the originators of symphonic Black Metal that Norway is internationally renowned for. Their cult 1994 debut album In the Nightside Eclipse has been ranked among albums like Slayer’s Reign in Blood and Venom’s Black Metal as a definitive masterpiece of our time.

Since their debut, the band have released four studio albums and a host of EP’s and compilation albums. Earlier this month, almost 30 years since the release of their sophomore record Anthems To The Welkin At Dusk, the band announced they are set to hit the road across the world, including playing their first US shows in over 15 years. With over three decades of music to their name, the moment has come for Emperor to return once more and prove why they are the gods of black metal.
