Emperor Emperor on Limited Edition 2LP
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 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.
Back On Black is pleased to offer up reissues of the groundbreaking band’s essential album collection on limited edition vinyl. Emperor’s 1993 self-titled mini-album – previously released as part of a split with Enslaved – features the original line-up with Mortiis on bass/lyrics and includes two rerecordings of songs from their Wrath of the Tyrant demo plus two songs which were later rerecorded for their full-length debut. This 2LP edition includes both the 4-track Emperor EP and the band's 1992 demo Wrath of the Tyrant.
