Extreme metal stalwarts Candlelight have revisited Emperor’s back catalogue. Norway’s greatest symphonic black metal band were genre defining, and to have their debut EP on transparent red vinyl is real treat. All remastered, with the careful eye of the band, they’re back to rightfully reclaim the throne.
7/10 gbar Customer review, 6th March 2017
This was Emperor's first official release if I'm correct, (and also possibly one of the first symphonic black metal albums), but for what it's worth, it's really fucking good. I'm not one for too much black metal, but for some reason this band is appealing to me. One of the things I really find appealing about this EP is that it mixes many different styles of music; from classical, to satanic death metal, to even showing their thrash metal influences. It's obvious that they drew inspiration from early Slayer and Venom, which makes this even more enjoyable. Symphonic black metal is one style of music that I'll have to look more into, and it's all thanks to this four-song EP from Emperor.
