Well, i had been told, and it seems to be a commonly held truth, that Emperor's 2nd album, 1997's To The Welkin At Dusk, was and is the be all, end all of epic Black Metal. So that's the album i bought, and i stayed away from Emperor for quite a few years after, as it was ok, but not quite up my alley. Now i finally decided to give their debut a shot, and i gotta say, In The Nightside Eclipse from 1994 is pretty awesome, and, for me, quite superior to it's much hailed successor.
Emperor are a Norwegian Black Metal band that puts a lot of thought and energy and time and tracks into their music. They produce a wall of sound that is so dense, it is hard to penetrate. They also adhere to the Norwegian Black Metal aesthetic of subpar production. The worse an album sounds, the more true and kult and superior it is. You're supposed to envision cobwebs and corpses and deathly hallows when listening to this staticy wall of sound where every instrument bleeds into the next, and instead of hearing crisp production and each individual instrument and nuance, you hear a storm, wind and rain and thunder heard in black and white over a bad reception telephone call. I get it. These guys, at least, are the progressive end of the spectrum where their punkier, "hey, cool, we can't play our instruments--We're true punks!", "musical" cohorts in bands like Mayhem reside.
This album, though, as I said, has plenty of attitude and atmosphere, and this music is legit. And it's good. 3/4 's of the band, pretty much everyone but band leader Ihsahn, were subsequently locked up due to their participation in church burnings and, in the case of drummer, Faust, manslaughter, in a case eerily similar to, or maybe it was the same case as, Jon Nodtveight's conviction of manslaughter.

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.

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.

This is clearly Emperors best album. Classic Norwegian black metal. Widely considered one of the best black metal albums of all time. Transport yourself to the dark cold forests of Norway and bang your head to this one!

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.

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.

For my first time ordering a product online, especially from amazon, I'm quite pleased and impressed with the order. It actually arrived earlier than I anticipated and the packaging was not damaged in the slightest. I will be buying more products in the near future. As for the actual product, I'm not a big black metal fan but this is an exception. This is an amazing album full of classic songs like Cosmic Keys to My Creations & Times, The Burning Shadows of Silence, and the stone cold classic I Am the Black Wizards. I recommend this album to almost anybody who has an interest for heavy metal.
