EMPEROR's cult 7" re-issued as Mini-LP and CD-Single together!

More info:

Emperor’s cult 7” re-issued as Mini-LP & CD-Single together!!
Originally released by Nocturnal Arts Productions (the label of Emperor’s guitarist Samoth) in 1994, “As the Shadows Rise” is the second Emperor E.P. and features material recorded back in December 1992, during the same sessions as the tracks that ended up on the legenday “Emperor” Mini-LP.
This effort is similar in the fact that it includes re-recorded versions of songs from the C.U.L.T. “Wrath of the Tyrant” demo. Nonetheless, this mini-album is equally superior, yet remains strangely obscured by time. The production on this E.P. is excellent and suits their material as wellas wearing gloves. It is not horribly modern or over-produced, but neither is it as necro and ancient-sounding as the “Wrath of the
Tyrant” demo.
Musically, these compositions are not much different from the original recordings. The only real alteration is during the middle of “Witches Sabbath”, where there is a somewhat melodic doom riff that is not present in the old one.
It is was until now unfortunate that these tracks were harder to find than the ones on the first mini-album, those being later released on the split with Enslaved and on re-issues of “Wrath of the Tyrant”, since this collection of tunes is killer in just about every way. For a bit of a different perspective on some classic Emperor songs, as well as another dose of old school Norwegian black metal, seek this out.
For fans of: (early) Emperor, (early) Master’s Hammer, Bathory, Immortal
