5.0 out of 5 stars Emperor exit in pure style!, 5 Feb 2005
By 
This review is from: Prometheus: the Discipline of Fire and Demise (Audio CD)
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.
