      Emperor's first album (1994).

      Emperor were one of the defining bands of Norwegian black metal, and 'In the Nightside Eclipse' was their first full-length recording after several equally iconic shorter releases. Blasted with atmospheric keyboards and tremolo-plucking guitar riffs creating a desolate wintry soundscape, this is seen as a classic of the genre by many, and probably as a load of treble-heavy screaming noise by others. But what do they know. Actually, that's partly accurate.

      This is a harsh album first and foremost, and the melodic elements that are certainly present are only ever secondary. Samoth's guitars rarely deviate from the wall of sound approach, and it's only Ihsahn's keyboards that pioneer the symphonic element. There's very little variation here to the untrained ear, but increased familiarity with the album will reveal its nuances, such as the steady, almost doom metal riffs of 'Beyond the Great Vast Forest' and the increased melodic quotient of the excellent 'The Majesty of the Nightsky.'
