CD Reviews

An excellent and inspired album

"I would have to say that metal these days is doing very well with a ridiculous amount of bands churning out one good CD after another. Emperor is one of the very best of these bands yet it is a shame that they probably never will receive the accolades they deserve so much. Their mastery over their art is apparant as they write music of a complex and rather technical nature that still manages to show raw power through it all and create a strong atmosphere of darkness. While one could argue the merits of their three albums for some time without ever deciding which one is the best I myself would have to say that IX Equilibrium deserves the honor. This could be, if for nothing else, the amazing songwriting (easily some of the best i've ever heard) and just how tight they can play (considering the nature of the music and the overall speed at which it is played, that is quite impressive). However to those looking for a band who are incredible musicians and songsmiths and whose music has no real fault then Emperor is the band you should be listening to."

"I have no idea why people say this is Emperor's worst album. I have "In the Nightside Eclipse" and "Athems to the Welkin at Dusk" and "Prometheus"- and personally I think this is their best album. The production is so much better than in "In the Nightside Eclipse" and "Anthems to Welkin at Dusk". The music is very full and it is in other Emperor albums also...but it just goes to show their touch has not been lost. Just overall it is very beautiful with much clearer production and some improved vocals. I highly recommend this album."

"emperor changed quite a bit. my first emperor album was "anthems" and i must say, i love the album, but it took me a long time to really get into it. this one is a lot heavier and intense, yet more accessible. it has a more classic thrash metal sound, and even has some amazing halford-like wails inserted into the mix. if you want a very hard hitting, yet enjoyable album, get this. you will not be dissappointed!"
