20th Anniversary Edition of one of the most influential albums in metal.
Emperors debut full length album, which set a new standard in extreme metal and has been the benchmark ever since, was released to universal acclaim in 1994. This is the album that introduced classical elements to the black metal sound and first made a wider audience take the genre seriously.
Two decades later, it is still the album seen by many as the pinnacle of its kind, and has influenced an uncounted number of bands. This anniversary edition is presented in deluxe hardback Digibook packaging with restored cover artwork and featuring rare archive pictures and content.
The "In The Nightside Eclipse" line-up will be re-uniting to perform the album in its entirety as headline artists at summer festivals across Europe, coinciding with the release of this edition:
Sweden Rock Festival (Sweden), Hellfest Open Air Festival (France), Tuska Open Air Metal Festival (Finland), Wacken Open Air (Germany) and Bloodstock Festival (UK).
