My friend told me to check this band out. Saying that it's a really good Black Metal band. I said ok and checked them out. MEH! Can't stand them like any other Black Metal band. My own opinion.


Ok, scratch that out. Emperor has been growing on me for the last few day. I'm starting to really, really like them.

Anyone heard their cover of Bathory's A Fine Day To Die?

I really like it, almost as much as the original. Ihsahn's voice really suits it.

Hmm judging from your pic you'd fit in more with a fat busted tribute.

emperor is awesome, i was really suprised when i heard they were doing a u.s. tour, i guess they all got out of prison or something, i know the singer was doing another metal band, im not sure what they are called. sorry. too bad they are not coming towards ohio.
i would go see them in a heart beat, and yes they are god's, at least demon's/church burning murderers.

just to make all you emperor fans jelous, i just got back from wacken open air in germany where they played ****ing amazing! and for the first time they played a song live from Prometheus.

they are such a good live band its incredible. they lived way beyond my expectations.

It was a shame that you couldn't hear Ihsahn, and only one of Tryms pedals for the first song though.

I bought In the Nightside Eclipse a month ago or so, but cant get into it... which is strange because I liked what I heard from them before, even if it was only two songs... oh well Im gonna go to the store and ask if I can swap it for something else.
According to BS statistics, 92% of teens have moved on to rap. If you're among the 8% who doesn't consider rap to be real music, donate your brains, as you clearly aren't using them.

In the Nightside Eclipse and Anthems are awesome. Prometheus and IX Equilibrium are decent IMO.
#95
Prometheus and Anthems are both masterpieces. So what if Prometheus is proggy, it's bloody good. The Eruption is perfect.

That being said i still haven't purchased In the Nightside Eclispe. I guess I really should.
#96
I took a long break from Emperor (not on purpose I just forgot about them) and now I'm getting back into them. I'd forgotten how great they are. Prometheus is great I don't care what anyone says and obviously In the Nightside Eclipse is greater than anything you'll ever do.

They have already, then they reformed sometime recently for a tour and a new album or something like that.
#102
BUMP

So, this thread has been dead for a bit...for same UG. Anyways the usual Emperor IS the Emperor over all of you etc... I read that their is a US tour in the planning or has it passed? The official site hasn't been updated since 2001 I believe.

And to the video of the band in the very beginning was very cool and I'm glad Samoth made it.

Emperor for life

I have Nightside.

I think it's good, but with the crappy production, who can tell?
#107
Aww but the bad production adds to the pure kvltness of the album. For me, In the Nightside Eclipse is their best but I love em all. Even Ihsahn's new albums.

Well, many Black Metal bands have crappy production. Some can pull it off and sound good, like Emperor. *shrugs*
#109
Yeah Emperor can hold their own with it. Although I do have to say if I had a choice I would rather listen to it in better quality. For example I heard the live version of I Am Black Wizards from some bootleg cell phone and it sounded better then the original recording.

I hope they come back to the UK again and actually tour, rather than play a one-off Astoria date, because I reaaaaally wanna see them.
