Emperor  - Anthems To The Welkin At Dusk download album

Anthems to the Welkin at Dusk is the second studio album by Norwegian black metal band Emperor. It was released on 8 July 1997 through Candlelight Records and Century Black. The album was recorded in the Grieg Hall in Bergen, Norway. The opening guitar riff to "Ye Entrancemperium" is taken from an unnamed Mayhem song.

Emperor's sophomore album is best described by the following: Beautiful extremity. I say this because from start to finish, Anthems to the Welkin at Dusk mixes the traditional black metal sound with a beautiful symphony. When present, the choir and string instruments take the spotlight and soar over the extreme madness below. When I say it takes the spotlight, I really mean it because the instrumental work basically drowns everything else. Three years undoubtedly gave Emperor the time they needed to sharpen up their craft. As a result, Anthems to the Welkin at Dusk sounds considerably more biting than its predecessor. Emperor's symphonic bent (which I'm still unsure about) was scaled back a bit, giving the drums and guitars some much-needed punch at last. Even if everything else had been the same, Emperor's vital improvement to the production would have made Anthems a sure hit to me.

Their first full length album, "In The Nightside Eclipse" showed everyone that Emperor wasn't your average Black Metal band, they meant business. eyboardist Ihsan knows what he's doing, and with both "In The Nightside Eclipse" and "Anthems To The Welkin At Dusk" showcase some of the best songwriting Black Metal has to offer

Emperor re-released Anthems and they included another track on the album called In Longing Spirit. This song sounds somehow different from all the others on the album, but it doesn’t fail to impress me. The song is cut in halves, the first half is slow paced and features mainly clean and vocals and some screams and the second half is fast paced and features harsh shrieking vocals by Ihsahn. An amazing added to the masterpiece: Anthems. To sum it all up, Anthems is an important album in black metal and an important album in Emperor’s Emperial decade of wrath
