Ihsahn: New Emperor Album Would Be Pointless Disappointment

emperor bandt

Ihsahn has stated that if Emperor reunited, there would be “Absolutly no point” in recording a new album as “It would be a disappointment.” He claims any new Emperor work would be similar to his masturbatory solo material. Perhaps Ihsahn should have come to this conclusion over two decades ago; Emperor’s post In the Nightside Eclipse material after Faust and Samoth went to prison consisted of merely interesting black metal riffs arranged into one-note verse chorus verse songs propelled forward mainly by soft versus hard contrasts. Ihsahn is right that creatively bankrupt guitar magazine pandering is not worth Hessians’ precious time. Listen to the original master of In the Nightside Eclipse again instead:

  1. Neil S. says:

    In my observation, many metalheads – both fans and media representatives – have an obsessive mentality of “So, when are you going to release a new album?” If I was a musician, I would question the loyalty of any “fan” who is dying for a new album and therefore has apparently grown tired of my previous releases. Like typical consumers, such people constantly seek new material to satisfy their cravings, even though the same people seem to hail nearly every release as being of high quality and therefore ought to already have enough good music to last them a lifetime. The genre would be healthier and the fans happier if the latter could find satisfaction in extant quality material instead of pressuring musicians for more output and setting themselves up for disappointment.

      Death metal has become new wave, black metal has become indie rock. Simplified to satisfy those simple cravings among a voracious populace. Soon, the FEMA camps will open and Kali Yuga will reach its end. Eugenics programs will create a master race of viking whites (not the enfeebled descendants of today) and dead inside fascistic Asians will be microchipped to create a hive mind that will turn those whites… into weapons. The age of the Prometheus engineer and our Michael Fassbender look alike overlords is upon us! Also, the latest Slayer music video might as well be from Drowning Pool. Hail the Georgia Guidestones!

        You seem like you know what you’re talking about. But after Nazi UFOs failed to emerge from their secret base under Antarctica in 2012, I must admit I am somewhat skeptical of your claims. Perhaps you can link me to some youtube videos as proof?

    At least he realizes this and they’re not cranking out album after album of pandering soulless excrement like “Mayhem”, among others.
