Emperor’s ‘Anthems to the Welkin at Dusk’ is a black metal classic that stands out as one of the genre’s most iconic releases. This 1997 full-length album was released by Candlelight Records and contains some of the most intense and symphonic metal ever heard.

The album’s opening track, ‘Alsvartr (The Oath)’, is a powerful and atmospheric introduction to the album, with its driving drums and melodic guitar riffs. This track and the following song, ‘Ye Entrancemperium’, are two of the most intense and epic songs on the album. Throughout the record, Emperor showcases their unique blend of blistering speed and sprawling, majestic songwriting.
