Emperor To Reunite For 2017 Shows
Emperor are, I’d wager, the greatest black metal band of all time. They’re part of the big Scandinavian wave and they’re undeniably kvlt, but their music is more interesting and powerful than the majority of the grinding Satan worship peddled by their peers. They are cool and at the same time legitimate as musicians, proof that black metal was (and is) more than simply a lot of belts and facepaint.
The last time Emperor played live was in 2014 when they performed at Wacken to honor the twentieth anniversary of In The Nightside Eclipse. But now it appears fans will get another chance to see the legendary band live.
According to this Facebook post from Photograve Management, Emperor will play a series of appearances in celebration of the twentieth anniversary of Anthems to the Welkin at Dusk, their sophomore full-length album and the band’s greatest musical masterpiece.
Brutal Assault is the only announced date so far, but more are said to be coming.
Which is the best news I’ve heard all week. Hopefully, Emperor will make a tour out of this reunion and everyone gets a chance to see them play live. Worst case scenario, they only play one or two dates, and we get to watch them via the Internet. What matters most is that people will get to see Emperor live and be blown away by Isahan playing the greatest album of his career.
Dates when they’re announced.
