EMPEROR: Emperor 1993 debut (black and red vinyl, Abbey Road half-speed master with superior sound)


EMPEROR: Emperor 1993 debut

(black and red vinyl, Abbey Road half speed remaster)

As epic as the song titles suggest, this 1993 milestone sees the band expand from their more stripped down demo: though still fiercely aggressive, mid-paced sections now feature among the up-tempo blasting, and keyboards underpin much of the music, a combination of haunting strings and catchy organ work contrasting with the buzz saw guitars and Ihsahn’s possessed screams. One of black metal's finest mini-albums.

Note: This is a special limited edition half-speed master. What is a half speed master? A record where the groove has been cut at half speed, resulting in a more detailed physical cut. This in turn results in a greater dynamic response, with high frequencies improving and much less unintended distortion, and overall a more clear and detailed, but also a richer and fuller, sound. 

Reminder: Emperor are interviewed at length in the Black Metal: Evolution of the Cult book, also available at this store.
