The droning riffs that keep you in a trance and revel around you, the vocals are just perfect, I can't say more, and I had no idea they were done in one take, that's quite impressive. I think this is the next album that I'm going to buy because I need a physical copy.

Does anyone happen to know meanings behind the following:
Amerzarak
Alor Mal Ki
Azonei Wyrdwalker- I know wyrd means fate in I believe Old Norse, but that's about it.

Are these made up words, or is there some other meaning attached to them?

Wyrd is actually an anglo saxon concept, similar to destiny or fate. The sisters of wyrd wove the web of wyrd, which has parallels to the Norns iin norse mythology.

The Sabbat album Dreamweaver is based on a rather good book called The Way of Wyrd, by Professor Brian Bates.
http://www.wayofwyrd.com/introduction_pc.html

there's some useful info on that site.

Mine arrived the other week.
I've only really had time for 3 listens, what with everything else, and the fact I need to set aside two and a half hours for it.

I like what I hear, but there's just that much that I struggle to pick out anything memorable other than the 'my god why have I forsaken me?' line.

Imperator is still monumental. Regardless of what anyone says.

I will be spending quite some time on this one it seems. There is a LOT to be digested here.

So I never really saw much talk on Imperator outside of "It's long and dense" which would make any man blush but Imperator is better then that. I find myself repeating the OMMMMMMMM IIIIIOOOOOO PAAAAAAAN as some sort of mantra on a regular basis now. Let's see what did this album do right...

How about how Sun On Earth is ****ing awesome. Or how The Serpents Head does everything Blut Aus Nord does but, you know, good. Or how Momentum: On The Devil and Death is reminiscient of the first time you listen to Blood Fire Death's Pace Till Death, since it puts you on a hellish descent that never ends and breaks the speed of light.

Oh, remember Asphyxia's absolutely IMPOSSIBLE vocals? God damn shiver inducing. And that synth sound beneath it all... mmmm. Also;

Quote:
Thou hast called
me, oh accuresed
and beloved fool.
My joy is the joy of
ETERNITY, and my
LAUGHTER is the DRUNKEN
LAUGHTER of a HARLOT in the
HOUSE OF ECSTACY.
Set my star upon you
banners and go forward
in joy and victory.
NONE SHALL DENY YOU, AND
NONE SHALL STAND BEFORE
YOU, because of the
sword of my brother.
Invoke me, call upon
me, call me in your
convocations and
rituals, call upon
me in your loves and
BATTLES IN MY NAME...

IO BABALON.


Imperator really feels like one of the members, if not both, went through some spiritual transformation and wanted to give it sound.

I've seen this band's name around here and there, but I've never listened. Any specific album to start on or are they all good?

Oh wow, Imperator is long...2 and a half hours. @_@"

Check out Mirium Occultum first. Then go for Imperator.

Mirium Occultum is miasmic majesty, Imperator is diving within and finding infinity.

I cannot put my thoughts into words if I enjoy an album, but Imperator is simply beyond. It is an incredibly massive album that has the ability to collapse the universe into a 2 and a half hour piece of music.

You who call me by my six names
NAMES
YOU CALL ME BY MY SIX
You know not what powers you toy with
I am DAMNED I am FALLEn
I spat blasphemes in the face of the creator
and I have left the curse that is FLESH

I am the star that hangs from the heavens,
Inverted to the form of a gate.
An alternate path to the twilight of KETHER
I have shed my cloak of shame!

That part.... maaaan. This album brings the same images in my mind each time. Swirling black and white cosmos, castles in the void... Those vocals were all done in one take man, no effects no nothing. Those voice cracks he does are something else.

They're re-releasing Imperator sometime this year? Gotta keep an eye out for that

You callin' me chicken?

I'm listening to Mirium Occultum right now, though, and this is really great. The drums stick out to me for some reason. Them huge riffs are awesome, too.

I'm going to revisit it now, I always feel there's something there, but I never seem to find time to take it all in properly. I don't want to dwell on the time, but it is a massive factor.

Words Of Uncreation for best bouncy black metal riff ever.

DÝdsengel know the power of the riff. Why are so many black metal bands unable to grasp the same knowledge?


Ah, well, there's enough material on Imperator alone that I don't even need much anything else.
