- Anthems To The Welkin At Dusk by Emperor
8/10 gbar Customer review, 6th March 2017
Anthems to the Welkin at Dusk was less groundbreaking for its time than In the Nightside Eclipse. History and context be damned in this case however; if the debut was a promise, Anthems to the Welkin at Dusk answered the call in every way. It's finally as violent and cathartic as becomes a band like Emperor. I know the question still rages today that more technically inclined metal bands lack the same potential to be cathartic as a rawer counterpart. Then again, I'm sure the answer would be far closer to positive if more bands were like Emperor. Even the bands that followed closest in their footsteps have very seldom channelled the same swirling wrath. The album's nearly twenty years old, and it still sounds dangerous.
