Eventually there comes a time when the hype about a band becomes superfluous, and their status alone speaks 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 albums In the Nightside Eclipse or Anthems to the Welkin at Dusk have been acclaimed by critics and fans alike as a definitive masterpiece of our time.
