CLASSIC EMPEROR ALBUM RE-RELEASED AS A LIMITED EDITION CD BOX SET INCLUDING DIGI CD, POSTER WITH UNSEEN PHOTOS & INTERVIEW BOOKLET LIMITED TO 5000 WORLDWIDE
Released in 1999 "IX Equilibrium" had the almost impossible task of following up the now legendary "Anthems" album. But Emperor being Emperor they managed to evolve yet again and create a more modern progressive and yet melodic sound whilst still having an extreme edge to their music. Tracks like "Curse You All Men" and "Elegy Of Icarus" are still live favourites today proving that the new sound they created appealed to an even wider metal audience than before. Bonus CD Rom features a clip from the No Mercy Festival tour and then follows to the US for their first headline American tour in 1999, ending up with a clip from the Mystic Festival in Poland, the final Emperor performance before they reformed for live shows in 2006. Emperor formed in 1991. Their recordings have sold in excess of 600,000 units Worldwide and their impact on the whole black/extreme metal scene is second to none. They are without doubt one of the most influential acts in any genre, respected the world over by fans, bands and critics alike. In late June the band will headline 2 major festivals, the first in France - Hellfest and the second in Finland - Tuska Festival , as well as select shows in the USA. These limited edition collectors boxsets will become highly collectable and are a fitting reminder as to the true greatness of this Norwegian act.
