Get down to the nearest animal enclosure for some goat appreciation from Emperor. As The Shadows Rise is the barons of doom 1994 release getting the reissue treatment. You can feel the despair and corpse paint dripping off this one, with lo-fi production, fuzzed beyond recognition guitars, thrashed out drums and vocal brutalisms. Out on vinyl LP from Hammerheart.

7/10 gbar Customer review, 6th March 2017

As the Shadows Rise is Emperor’s second EP and shows major improvements over its predecessor. While most of the dimensions of this brief recording are the same as its processor, there are a few major and significant upgrades. It seems that Emperor finally got the bucks to purchase a professional keyboard, which dramatically improves the band's sound. The synths are a major personality throughout the recording, creating intense backdrops and dreamy counter melodies. The production is also superior. All the instruments have a bigger and fuller sound than they did on the self-titled EP.
