Product Description

This killer collection is a double CD that features a Best Of disc, complied by the band themselves, and a rarities disc that features rare and unreleased material to completely satisfy the collector. A beautifully packaged double CD. For over a decade Emperor challenged the concepts and precepts of Black Metal, taking musical risks that no others in the genre would even contemplate, now more than 20 years after these three friends took up the mantle, we re-release this fantastic overview of the World's greatest Black Metal band. Don't miss your chance to see Emperor LIVE in 2014: Bloodstock 2014 will host the most long awaited return in metal.

Format: Audio CD
After their split in 2001, Emperor had truly left their mark on the Black Metal scene as one of its most successful and influential bands. Throughout its two discs, 'Scattered Ashes...' proves time and time again why this was the case.
Disc one spans the entire length of their career, from their eponymous mini album to their final swansong 'Prometheus...'. Apparently, the tracklisting was picked by guitarist/bassist Samoth, and I have to say that he has done an excellent job. The two or three tracks chosen from each album turn out to be the best in every single case. The epic "I Am The Black Wizards" from 'In The Nightside Eclipse' is arguably Emperor's best song, whilst "In The Wordless Chamber" from 'Prometheus...' showed that Emperor were never afraid to progress whilst still keeping true to their roots. The lush, keyboard-laden "The Loss And Curse Of Reverence" and the Classical and Death Metal influenced "An Elegy Of Icaros" would normally be classed as other high points. That is not saying they have aged badly or aren't as good, but the album is of such a high standard that it is near impossible to pick out favourites.
The second disc is a mixed bag, containing covers, songs from split albums and demo tracks. The covers in particular are excellent, highlights being Darkthrone's "Cromlech", Bathory's "A Fine Day To Die" and Thorns' "Aerie Descent". The demos are pretty primitive sounding, but that's what would be expected of a group of teenagers recording on a four-track in a bedroom. Even at that early stage in the band's life, songs like "The Ancient Queen" show they had their artistic flair and creative genius right from the start.

Format: Paperback
As this book contains transcriptions by Ihsahn himself you know you will be getting nothing but the right notes,which isn't always the case with tab books,particularly when dealing with music as difficult to accurately transcribe as Emperor.
The transcriptions are easy to follow and well laid out and contain both guitar parts and the the basslines for all songs.The only real problem I found was the lack of any palm muting indications on any of the songs.While it was not a problem for me to hear when it was used,it may be for others and should of been included.
The choice of tracks is pretty faultless and mainly focuses on the nightside eclipse and anthems.. albums,including 4 tracks from each as well as 2 a piece from equilibrium and prometheus,although only one from wrath of the tyrant.
It's well worth having if you like Emperor and play the guitar or bass and I would definitely reccomened it.

An excellent book, painstakingly transcribed by Ihsahn. The songs are from Scattered Ashes, so they are a mix of the primitive and magical darkness of the older material, and the cold clinical majesty of their later songs.

Wanted to buy a UK version, resulting in receiving a US version, but not a critical problem though
Good record after all

Format: Audio CD
Emperor are truly the greatest black metal, if not the greatest metal band of all time and this double CD is a fine testament to their work. Disc 1 contains all the classics such as "Curse you all men", "Inno a Satana", "I am the black wizards" and many more including tracks from Wrath of the Tyrant right upto epic pieces of music from Prometheus!!. Disc 2 is also brilliant as it contains many rare hard to find tracks and some brilliant Darkthrone and Mayhem covers, it's hard to find fault with this album as it truly is a fitting end to Emperor's reign as the kings of music, it is extremely heavy, yet also eerie, haunting melodic and at times awe inducing, buy this album if you love Emperor, or buy it if you just love and enjoy music itself!! A true masterpiece of legendary proportions!!!!! buy and enjoy!
