Eventually there comes a time when the hype about a band becomes superfluous, and their status alone speaks volumes. Such is the case with EMPEROR, the black metal gods hailing from Telemark, Norway. EMPEROR has become known as one of the originators of symphonic Black Metal that Norway is internationally renowned for.
EMPEROR’s first Australian shows in 2019 were met with a wildly successful response culminating in two phenomenal sold out shows that shattered all expectations. As a direct result of the Australian hordes insatiable appetite for the black and sinister, EMPEROR have decided again to spread their emperial wrath among us and perform rites that will heavily feature their debut cult album ‘In The Nightside Eclipse’, one defined as a definitive metal masterpiece of our time.
Support to the famed Scandinavian icons comes in the ghastly shape of THE AMENTA. Ugly, dissonant, electronically-lacerated extreme metal. Their latest album ‘Revelator’, released in 2021 to incredible acclaim, highlights on all layers the pounding energy and fanatic will of the band to develop and to create art which does not accept any borders. THE AMENTA are poised to serve up their most intense live ritual performances with a ferocious attack of sensory overload, savage discord and unease.
