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. 2009's Live Inferno serves as Emperor's final official release to date and documents the band's incendiary performance at Norway's Inferno Metal Festival in April 2006. Featuring versions of such cornerstone black metal anthems as "I Am The Black Wizards," "Inno a Satana," "The Loss and Curse of Reverence," and "Towards the Pantheon."
