Limited digipak version also available with a bonus live track. Only 5000 copies.
I've taken the following has been taken from
the Emperor Spring Newsletter from Candlelight:
|Following on from the huge success
of 'Anthems to the Welkin At Dusk' and 'In The Nightside
Eclipse', 'IX Equilibrium' will be the modern day
standard bearer for extreme music. The band have
remarkably, improved again, taking a musical step forward
to the next millennium and beyond. They have combined the
sounds of 'Anthems...' with even heavier and yet
accessible riffs, plus a devastating orchestral beauty
that will leave their rivals drowning in thie wake. This
will be THE milestone alum of the year!!
There are so many different musical aspects to this release, the shades of pure darkness and then light make this one of the most challenging listens to the last decade, every song takes on a new angle every time you listen to it!!
Emperor are the most important act in the genre and this is the landmark album, that the world has been waiting for even eclipsing 'Anthems to the Welkin At Dusk' and 'In The Nightside Eclipse'!!!!
