Emperor Announce Plans To Reunite, Confirm First Shows


(Metal Hammer) Emperor will stage a reunion in 2017 and play a handful of shows to mark the 20th anniversary of their Anthems To The Welkin At Dusk album, the band have announced.

Frontman Ihsahn, guitarist Amoth and drummer Trym have confirmed just one appearance so far, at the Czech Republic's Brutal Assault Festival in August. It will be three years since the band, then featuring drummer Faust, last performed.

Emperor say in a statement: "We will return in 2017 for a few exclusive appearances, performing the Anthems To The Welkin At Dusk album. The first confirmed show is at the Brutal Assault Festival. Emperial regards, Ihsahn, Samoth, Trym."

Although they've reformed several times since first splitting in 2001, it seems unlikely that they'll record a follow-up to that year's Prometheus: The Discipline Of Fire And Demise. Read more here.
