Throughout their life, Emperor have been responsible for releasing numerous classics. 'Prometheus' takes things to the next level, with their finest album yet.
Although Emperor will likely be remembered as a black metal band, 'Prometheus' has lost most of the hallmarks of the genre. Besides the death, thrash and classic heavy metal influences that appear throughout, the album has a very orchestrated sound. Although this is usually brought about through the usual metal instruments, the band do also apply the use of the more classical-orientated. The harpsichord intro to 'The Eruption' being a perfect example.
The result? An album of colossal proportions. It simply sounds huge, the word 'epic' being perhaps the simplest description. The tracks aren't so much songs as they are compositions. Besides the superb technical ability this trio displays, mainman, Ihsahn is an unbelievable composer. The sheer scope of the music is almost unparalleled nowadays - Tool, Opeth, Neurosis and The Postman Syndrome are a few that even begin to compare.
Its a shame that so few non-extreme metal fans will be tempted to explore this work of art. In some ways, it is more accessible than the majority of black metal albums, but at the same time, shows far greater depth. There are long-running Emperor fans who put the album down, but they are missing out on the point entirely. This is one of the greatest albums of all time.

Emperor- 'Prometheus-the discipline of fire and demise' a truly epic masterpiece of total extreme metal madness. Leagues beyond all other true heavy metal. Harsher and more brutal than Dimmu Borgir and infinitely grander and more epic than the trademark COF black metal sound. Insanely beautiful, beautifully insane and everything that music of genuine inspiration should be- powerful, moving, crushing; these terms do it no justice. The introductory track, 'the eruption', is the most moving sonic experience I have ever had and undoubtedly as close to complete musical perfection as Emperor and particularly front man Isahn have ever come. And yet it doesn't stop there, every track on this album has its own brilliance and the completed work is something of incredible beauty, something to be revisited again and again. More approachable than some of the bands earlier work but without the integrity of the art being in any way compromised (as with some more 'commercially viable' black metal releases). Encapsulates everything I love about music in a single hour's divine thunder. Turn it WAY up, close your eyes and open the animal soul. Limitless...

Ihsahn is an amzaing composer and his knowledge of music can be heard progressing over the numerous Emperor albums. I always knew that he had alot more to offer and that he was holding back, well hes finally let go. Prometheus sees Ihsahn letting go completely of the black metal stereotype and runs havoc over 9 tracks of essentially material written entirely by him. Whether this deserves the Emperor title is debateble but who cares when you've got the best metal album ever in your CD player and perhaps that best album of all time. It never stops, this album provides extremely heavy guitar riffs in parts and almost classic symphonic melodies in others. It crossses all the boundries, where as one band will tend to repeat one riff throught most of the song Ihsahn finds a good riff and then moves straight onto another taking you through a journey of epic proportion. The recording is spot on and the album gets better with every listen (confusing for the first few listens but dont dismiss it). Melodies upon melodies of beautifully crafted metal from pure hatred to pure beauty YOU MUST OWN THIS ALBUM.

Wow.
This is brilliant stuff. It's not black metal, but for those who think of themselves as true metalheads will realise just how good this is.
It's not as accessible as Wrath Of The Tyrant or Anthems To The Welkin At Dusk and some of the tunes are really hard to listen to. Trym has been using a wierdo stuttering style on some tracks which he used first I think on World Ov Worms and to be honest, the only track on Prometheus which benefits from it is Thorns On My Grave.
But, on the whole, this is a ridiculously good album which is still growing on me and has formed a Big Three, along with Reign In Blood and Master Of Puppets.
The standout tracks are In The Worldless Chamber (how intense is the kick-back after the neo-classical bit?) and Empty (the riff is like a hammer to the brain).
Magic.

Format: Audio CD
This album is vastly enormously imensely brilliant... I read the Kerrang review which said that it was one of the greatest albums ever, and I HAVE to agree, this ranks alongside not just black metal classics such as Venom, Mayhem, Hellhammer etc or even just rock classics like Slayer, Iron Maiden, Metallica or Tool, but it surely is among the bands that are so good that only maybe once a decade one appears; The Beatles, U2, Nirvana. It completely dwarves everything they or any other black metal band have ever done before, even although they too were masterpieces. Each song blends to make this an uncompromising work of art with musicianship and skill never seen outside of Classic FM. They are no longer about corpse paint, burnt churches or dead "circle" members, they are now about finishing their career with the most astonishing album possible. Buy it. Now!
