Apparently Faust is joining Emperor for the reunited band tours, so that pretty much cinches them not getting into the US with an arsonist and a murderer on the bill. And no new album, just shows we won't see in the US. A+

Might as well put Varg in there too as a special guest just to be sure they don't get in.

More Primus For Fucks Sake.

I could listen to Foulest Semen of a Sheltered Elite for months on end, easily one of my favorite black metal albums. Choirs and doom makes for an incredible atmosphere.


Apparently he gathered some session musicians up because he played at Roadburn this year. Little skeptical how it would turn out live at first but listening to it they pulled it off very well indeed. Blood Vaults is gonna kick my rear end.

Emperor might have completed the last step in total let-down:

Norwegian black metallers EMPEROR will celebrate the 20th anniversary of their "In The Nightside Eclipse" album at next year's Wacken Open Air festival, set to take place July 31-August 2, 2014 in Wacken, Germany. EMPEROR members Ihsahn (real name: Vegard Sverre Tveitan) and Samoth (real name: Tomas Haugen) will be joined by Bård Guldvik "Faust" Eithun on drums, and they will perform the CD in its entirety. There will be no new studio album or a worldwide tour — only a few exclusive festival appearances next year to mark the celebration of this landmark release.


Aside from them deciding to make it an acoustic set, I can't think of a way they could make this reunion suck more.

Oh come on, who didn't expect that?

They'll have serious issues getting visas for long tours anyway (a murderer and an arsonist? wheeee), and by keeping appearances down they can keep fees up. I mean, I'd be personally happy they haven't mentioned anything about keyboards yet...

Yeah I know, but let's face it, the (old) options are Mortiis and Charmand. And both are jokes now. If they keep the old core and just get somebody in to do the actual songs, there's no chance of an ego deciding on a keyboard solo.

I'd imagine it'll continue to be Ihsahn's brother in law though. And since I don't see any announcement of Tchort playing bass I guess that'll be a live session too.

There's video of the keyboard player they have from the concert. He's behind a black wall with the Emperor 'E' Shield logo on it. You can see him from their live footage of the concert, or just look at this horrible screencap I took:



I believe it's Einar Solberg, from the band Leprous. Ihsahn was doing some live performances of his stuff at this time, and he used this band to fill in the gaps for his own purposes. Einar does the clean vocal harmonies on Emperors more recent live performances, and I hate them. The player they had on Emperial Live Ceremony was far, far better; I think that was Charmand Grimloch from Tartaros, though he didn't harmonize the clean vocals, he did the additional screams. Tyr did the clean vocals in 1999.

At the very least we should be happy there won't be a new album. Ihsahn's head is so far up his own colon there's no return at this point

The songwriting for the very first Gallowbraid full-length album began about two months ago and was completed yesterday. The session drummer and I will be rehearsing and finalizing the songs over the next three days and we have studio time booked for tracking the drums on Monday. I hope to have the entire album finished by the end of September.


From the Gallowbraid Facebook page.

This came out of nowhere, and I am pretty excited about it. I had read Gallowbraid was basically dead, and the guy had moved on to some other band. Guess not :getin:

I've been obsessed with the one Gallowbraid EP for a couple of months now, since someone in this thread(I forget who) brought it up.

Anyone know any bands with a similar sound to Nokturnal Mortum's Goat Horns or Nazgul's De Expugnatione Elfmuth? Sort of a symphonic sound, but with raw production. I did look into Nokturnal Mortum's later albums, but they're not as good as Goat Horns.

I thought NeChrist was the best Nokturnal Mortum album, although it is in their "max nazi" period if you dont like that sort of thing.

This is pretty weird. Can't say I'm a fan of the vocals (both the clean vocals and the screams) on Der Gottesverächter, but Vom Gesicht und Rätsel is pretty decent. Looks like there was a gap of 5 years or so between the albums the two songs are from, and it seems like it (or the vocals, at least) benefit from better production. I'll check out the rest of Der freiwillige Bettler. Thanks for the recommendation.

Watain Announce Fall North American Tour With In Solitude & Tribulation

Watain commented on the coming tour:

"Starting the first full tour for The Wild Hunt in North America seems quite appropriate, considering how many severe experiences and the sleepless nights that country has bestowed upon us while riding through its strange wilderness… A thousand years and a thousand deaths have passed since we last visited the States, so prepare yourself to face something very, very old and very very hungry."

"Deformed from both victory and defeat, distorted by a constant influx of powers residing beyond the borders of this world, we now return to join forces with our ever loyal US supporters. With us we will have two acts that have the capacity of transforming the audience into one big open wound before we go on stage, ready then to receive the lethal yet illuminating venom of Watain."
