Ihsahn announced back in August that the iconic Emperor would be reuniting this year for a few special appearances in Europe to celebrate the 20th anniversary of their Anthems To The Welkin At Dusk album. To get fans more excited for those upcoming performances, Ihsahn has released a new playthrough video of ‘The Loss And Curse Of Reverence’ single for our viewing pleasure today.
Here’s what he said about the clip: “In 2017 we have the privilege of celebrating the 20th anniversary of Emperor’s second album; Anthems to the Welkin at Dusk. To mark the occasion we’re currently rehearsing to perform this album in its entirety on some of Europe’s biggest rock festivals this Summer. Given these circumstances, I thought it was a great opportunity to present the first single and video track from that album; “The Loss And Curse Of Reverence” in the slightly more contemporary format of a playthrough video! Big thanks to Aristides Instruments for making this possible!”
Emperor are confirmed to perform Anthems To The Welkin At Dusk at Tons Of Rock in Norway, Rock Fest Barcelona in Spain, Wacken Open Air in Germany, and Brutal Assault in Czech Republic this Summer! BE THERE!
