    Carcass was the same way and now we have a new album.

    Either way I don't mind though... worst case is another awesome Ihsahn solo album.

    apparently Faust is going to be playing drums?

    smells like they might be doing some 20th anniversary of "In the Nightside Eclipse" type thing, because I doubt Faust can play Trym's stuff.

    Hm. Sounds more like a cash-grab than an actual reunion. I can't honestly say I hope I'm wrong and they actually write some new material, though, because the last Emperor album wasn't really particularly good (certainly not very Emperor-y), and none of the stuff Ihsahn or Samoth have done since the split indicates a reunion would lead to a return to form.

    Oh well. I did always want to see them live, so... cool for all the people that live anywhere near a place this "reunion" is going to play. I'm going to climb out on a very sturdy limb and assume they won't be coming to Asia.

    Have they indicated there will be plans beyond playing Wacken?

    Hey man, you've got to stop being so cynical about everything. My birthday's coming up, and some of the boys are thinking about cutting you off the guest list. We don't need someone who's going to sit around complaining that the cake isn't chocolate, or that we're playing Just Dance instead of Mario Party.

    Anyways, I think this is cool for fans who never got to see them perform live, like me. (like they'll come to the southeast US anyways :rolleyes:)

    edit: Ihsahn diiiiiid come to Atlanta for ProgPower, so still probably not :lol:

    last time they got back together, i made sure to get a ticket and go see them in new york city, no effing way i was missing that, still Samoth wasn't able to make it into the country for those two shows, and i was a bit bummed, hopefully they come to north america again so i can at least try to go

    Good news: According to Faust's Facebook, it looks like he IS in fact rejoining for the 20th anniversary of In The Nightside Eclipse

    Bad news: I extremely doubt he will be allowed in the US due to his checkered past. Look at members of Watain and Mayhem. US doesn't allow anyone with a single scratch on their record in.

    Emperor... I'm not into Black Metal at all but when I heard for the first time The Loss and Curse of Reverence (in 1997 I guess) it was the beginning of a great story with this band! Damn I love so much their music!

    I saw them twice (wacken 2006 & Hellfest 2007), each time it was beyond of expectation, a magic moment, I had goosebumps as hell :bowdown:

    I'm not trolling. I have a different opinion and it just happens to often be negative. There's other folk in here that don't seem thrilled about the reunion either. Hell, I even provided an article on why I feel that way.

    I've been on an Emperor binge today, in light of the news. Love this band so much. The first three albums accompanied me while I did some daily chores around the house.
