Emperor - Emperor / Wrath Of The Tyrant album
Wrath of the Tyrant is the first demo album by the Norwegian black metal band Emperor. It was recorded in May 1992 and self-released by the band shortly after. Wrath of the Tyrant was originally distributed by the band as a demo shortly after it was recorded. This original demotape had a picture of a chimera on the cover. In 1994 it was re-released through Wild Rag Records with two bonus tracks and different artwork.
Emperor/Wrath of the Tyrant" is the best place to get a comprehensive look at the really early work of Emperor. Even remastered, the sound of everything is very weak. I guess the whole special "necro" atmosphere is preserved in these recordings, but the loss of being able to hear any clearly defined instruments makes it awkward. The album starts off with the classic "I AM THE BLAck Wizards. This song is a classic. The qualitly of the recording on all the tracks isn't the best and even though remastered,were kept close to the orignal sound. This gives all the songs a grim and "necro" feeling, sometimes making it harder to get into this album. The EP continutes on with other classics such as "Night of the Graveless souls," and "Cosmic Keys to My Creations and Times.
