5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent and inspired album 24 May 2000
By "phaylon" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I would have to say that metal these days is doing very well with a ridiculous amount of bands churning out one good CD after another. Emperor is one of the very best of these bands yet it is a shame that they probably never will receive the accolades they deserve so much. Their mastery over their art is apparant as they write music of a complex and rather technical nature that still manages to show raw power through it all and create a strong atmosphere of darkness. While one could argue the merits of their three albums for some time without ever deciding which one is the best I myself would have to say that IX Equilibrium deserves the honor. This could be, if for nothing else, the amazing songwriting (easily some of the best i've ever heard) and just how tight they can play (considering the nature of the music and the overall speed at which it is played, that is quite impressive). However to those looking for a band who are incredible musicians and songsmiths and whose music has no real fault then Emperor is the band you should be listening to.

5.0 out of 5 stars Breath-taking furious symphonic black metal 19 Nov 2007
By James B. Beavan III - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Brilliant production and great musicianship lead to the best album of Emperor's career. Plenty of fire still left in the tank on their 3rd full length and the band works in harmony to create a superb symphonic black metal record. The music is plenty technical and will give you numerous listens to fully hear everything presented in rich full bodied splendor. This is an essential purchase for any fan of extreme metal!

4.0 out of 5 stars Amazing. 16 April 2007
By P. Walczak - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I have no idea why people say this is Emperor's worst album. I have "In the Nightside Eclipse" and "Athems to the Welkin at Dusk" and "Prometheus"- and personally I think this is their best album. The production is so much better than in "In the Nightside Eclipse" and "Anthems to Welkin at Dusk". The music is very full and majestic...as it is in other Emperor albums also...but it just goes to show their touch has not been lost. Just overall it is very beautiful with much clearer production and some improved vocals. I highly recommend this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars a different approach 6 Jan 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
emperor changed quite a bit. my first emperor album was "anthems" and i must say, i love the album, but it took me a long time to really get into it. this one is a lot heavier and intense, yet more accessible. it has a more classic thrash metal sound, and even has some amazing halford-like wails inserted into the mix. if you want a very hard hitting, yet enjoyable album, get this. you will not be dissappointed!

5.0 out of 5 stars The blackest of the black! 2 May 2002
By Ross Reynolds - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Okay, my last two reviews were of Christian albums, now it's time to review something eeevil! When it comes to black, evil music, Emperor is the best there is. And these guys aren't just pretending, they're the real thing. They really are practitioners of dark rituals. Now, regardless of what you may think about that, I think it's still quite admirable that they stand up for what they believe in.
I know what you're thinking, evil music is just bad. Well, if you can overlook that, these guys are excellent musicians who make really cool music. It's heavy, dark, violent, and even melodic. Everything a black metal band should be. The drums and guitar are very impressive, and Ihsahn's vocals are just too cool. So cool, they're cold! {Warning: Bad black metal pun}
If you like black metal, buy this. A lot of people say it's commercial, but I never heard this on MTV (not that I would if it were). This is just excellent, well-made music, and those who appreciate such things will like it.
