The album opens insanely with 'Curse You All Men' from 'IX Equilibrium.' Then, the songs move from Prometheus with 'The Tongue of Fire' all the way back to the album, In The Nightside Eclipse' with the song, 'The Majesty of the Night Sky.' There are 4 songs from 'Anthems to the Welkin at Dusk,' considered by many to be their best release. This inludes the live song, 'Thus Spake the Nightspirit' taken from 'Emperial Live Ceremony.' The songs are put in a certain distinct order so that the listener gets a feel for the differences in style that Emperor had despite being known as the best symphonic black metal band ever to come out of Norway.
This album is a great compilation to have in one's metal collection and even if one owns all of the Emperor releases, there are rare songs and great covers from bands like Bathory, Mayhem, and Darkthrone on disc 2. I have this in my cd player a lot because I love hearing the different Emperor songs on one disc! Emperor fans will be pleased with this compilation. HAIL EMPEROR!
The only gripes that I have with this collection is the inclusion of a remixed version of "Sworn" instead of the album version. The remix is a very techno sounding track and to be blunt I hate it. The album version was one of their strongest tracks from "IX Equilibrium" so why not include it?
Aside from that one gripe I love having all the best songs along with some rarities for the price of a single disc album. It would be the perfect gift for someone either just getting into Emperor or a casual fan who wants a sampling of their best material. Overall, a best of collection done right from the guys over at Candlelight records.
Emperor obviously need no introduction, as they were quite obviously the best black metal band ever. But I'll give a brief description of their sound anyway. Although progressing with each album, Emperor's hallmarks include screeching, manic guitar riffs, ethereal keyboard melodies evoking bleak Scandinavian winters, and pummeling precise percussion. My first contact with Emperor was when I bought the album Prometheus. It took me some time to really get to love that album, but it was well worth the effort. I then went on to explore the rest of their back catalogue. It's certainly an interesting journey, and I have to say that the cuts here do an excellent job of tracing Emperor's evolution, and giving the listeners the highlights of their albums.
The black disc, showcasing previously released material illustrates just how diverse Emperor could be. Always brutally aggressive, but mixing in passages of beauty and restraint which other bands could only dream of integrating so flawlessly. Highlights (amongst all the highlights)from this disc include Curse thee all men! The loss and curse of reverance, in the wordless chamber and Inno a Satana.
The silver disc is a collection of previously unreleased material, including covers of bands like Mercyful Fate and Mayhem, plus their own compositions. I think 'A fine day to die' is one of Emperor's greatest tracks, and I particularly enjoyed the cover of Mercyful Fate's Gypsy, but overall this disc is not of as high a quality as the black disc, although it does make an interesting listen, and is definitely worth having if the black disc contains nothing new for you.
Therefore, this compilation makes an excellent introduction to anyone wishing to explore the murky, viscerial, brutal world of Emperor, but is also definitely worth having for die hard fans.
However, since it was a celebrated event that a band with the talent Emperor does, calling it quits before you ruin your good name releasing crap ( *cough* METALLICA AND SLAYER *cough*) as time moves on... They pump out this release, a compilation of their greatest hits pretty much, spanning their entire career. You get to see how they began, and matured in sound and showmanship with each release, including goodies that you wouldn't have gotten unless Emperor was a part of your local scene in Norway.
Highly reccomended, I'm listening to it right now actually ;)
