Anthems to the Welkin at Dusk Reviews

Reviewer :    (90/100)
Date : 
1992년 데모테잎 Wrath Of The Tyrant, 1993년 미니LP Emperor을 발표한 Emperor는 데뷔작 In The Nightside Eclipse로 Black Metal계에서 최고의 위치에 오르게 되며 두 번째 앨범인 본작 Anthems To The Welkin At Dusk으로 말미암아 명성을 더욱 확고히 한다. 데뷔앨범과 더불어 Black Metal 역사상 가장 높은 지명도를 가지고 있는 앨범으로 수려한 멜로디라인, 뛰어난 구성과 녹음으로 장르의 오버그라운드화에 크나큰 공을 세웠다. 광폭한 사운드를 바탕으로 한 풍부한 키보드연주를 접할 수 있다.

Best Track : With Strength I Burn , Opus A Satana (bonus track)
