You might wonder why the debut album of the Norwegian black metal pioneers Emperor features in this section. Actually the band is now celebrating the 20th anniversary for the highly acclaimed ‘In The Nightside Eclipse’, which made a great impact on the early black metal scene.
According to Candlelight Records, the re-release contains a deluxe hardback digibook, a double CD presentation and additional previously unheard bonus tracks.
Apart from re-releasing their amazing debut album, they will even do some selected gigs with their old original line-up, consisting of Ihsahn (vocals, guitars), Samoth (guitars) and Faust (drums). They will be playing the full album.
The release date is set to May 26th, 2014.
