Emperor (2)

Emperor (2)

Profile:
Black metal band from Notodden, Telemark, Norway, founded in 1991 by Ihsahn (Vegard Tveitan) and Samoth (Tomas Haugen). They were just teenagers during the Norwegian black metal scene in the early 90s, but beyond the infamy of being one of the original bands they also managed to make some great music, and their use of keyboards in particular made them one of the most influential (and most-copied) to all the black metal bands that followed.

Emperor dissolved in 2001. They reunited from 2005 to 2007 for a few festival dates and brief US tours, and again reunited in 2013 to 2014 to celebrate the 20th anniversary of their "In The Nightside Eclipse" album.
