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 the symphonic black metal which Norway is internationally renowned for and arguably its most unique export. Their rise to popularity outlines the very development of black metal's second wave; a period of the genre's most prolific and controversial material to date. This essential 12-track set, originally issued on DVD in 2009, documents Emperor's headlining 2006 performance at Germany's Wacken Open Air Festival and features definitive live takes of such black metal anthems as "I Am The Black Wizards," "Inno a Satana," "The Loss and Curse of Reverence," and "Towards the Pantheon."
