Before I go any further it should be known that is probably my favorite metal album, or at the very least, my favorite black metal album, by a band who, in my opinion, are very important to the genre.

Emperor's career, like In the Nightside Eclipse, always seemed so brief to me. While others like Motörhead (30+), Mayhem (20+), and Satyricon (15+) continue to record and perform live, Emperor were only around for ten years, and not all of them were spent releasing material or playing live. When they did create an album, it was serious work, and this is no exception. It should also be remembered that most of the musicians were still in their teens at the time of recording, adding to the belief by some that "real" black metal can only be made by pissed off teenagers, but also that a certain level of experience is not necessary for good music. Whether either is true, this never ends up sounding immature or juvenile for even a second. As Emperor progressed in sound, style, and even musicianship, they grew up a little, utilizing more clean vocals, and dropping the use of corpsepaint. Though highly regarded, their work here would never be repeated, and is what some consider the last of "old" Emperor, but easily the best of them as well.

One of the most common complaints about this album is the quality of its production (or lack thereof), but this has also been frequently touted as a redeeming characteristic. Frontman Ihsahn has stated that they would probably never rerecord it to get better sound because the album owes much of its appeal to the production, which adds to the atmosphere and overall dark mood. Though better production could improve the quality of the sound, it could also very likely take away from its feeling, and the spirit of those involved in its creation.

5.0 out of 5 stars A landmark in black metal May 7, 2006
Format:Audio CD
This is probably one of black metal's finest bands. This album also stands as one of the best black metal albums ever made, from the haunting keyboard melodies to the incredible cover art, everything about this album is superb.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Definitive Black Metal Album July 21, 2006
Format:Audio CD
I did not like the album on first listen--the production quality sounded poor. (This was actually good production quality for the genre at the time.) It is now my favorite album, and I would not change the sound one bit. This sounds like ancient evil. I love the mood of it. So dark and full of despair. A sick feeling that they lost on future albums.

5.0 out of 5 stars Emperor at Their Peak November 9, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Emperor's "In the Nightside Eclipse" is one of their best albums they had released bac in the mid 90's. It still keeps that raw feel that Black Metal should have, but also maintains a complexity within each of their songs to keep the listener engaged within, not only the music, but the dark atmosphere it presents. Some originals mixed with some cover songs, this album is a true must for any Black Metal fan. It should be a staple within a Black Metal fan's music collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dark powers March 9, 2009
Format:Audio CD
Built in two parts, the first being drenched into dark nature and space, bleak and eerie paths that lead to the fifth song where the gate opens leading to the second part of the opus which is becoming of bombastic arrogance riding on symphonic skeleton to culminate with and ode to dark powers, reaching simultaneously the highest of the peeks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Majestic and Haunting album, the best in the genre February 14, 2009
By Mclusky
Format:Audio CD
Emperor created a winner with this opus of black metal majesty. They created a sound and an atmosphere entirely their own and managed to use keyboard melodies without sounding cheesy throughout the entire album. This alone is worth mention since many bands go the keyboard route and it goes from evil to goth pop hilarity in a heartbeat.

Emperor create a dark and wild pagan soundscape and do it in such a way that the music sucks you in from the intro to the end of the album. Despite the poor production this is the most sweeping and epic Black Metal album ever recorded and captures the essence of what the scene was trying to communicate to people. It speaks of desolate Northern forests, wolves, moonscapes, evil and the vast emptiness and wildness of nature and does it in a truly majestic way. Even after all these years I can listen to this and get sucked into the music. Anyone who says there is no musical talent in metal hasn't heard this, and if you can't get beyond the production you probably shouldn't be listening to black metal anyway. The production adds to the atmosphere in ways that have to be heard to be believed. If you're new to black metal this is a mandatory album to listen to. As good as it ever got, end of story.
