One of the best and most influential bands to come out of the black metal genre.
Emperor was formed in 1991 with the lineup of: Samoth (Drums/Vocals), Ihsahn (Guitar), and Mortiis (Bass)
However, this lineup changed in many ways and their latest lineup was Ihsahn (Vocals/Guitars/Bass/Synth), Samoth (Guitars), and Trym (Drums)
The band disbanded in 2001, but their legend still lives on.

I just saw Emperor in concert last night! They put on one of the best live shows! Ihsahn's vocals were dead on!
A thrash metal band with gypsy folklore elements hailing from Hungary. Their sound is very similar to and influenced by Sepultura. Which means they are very heavy with nice guitar solos and catchy lyrics. For more info visit www.ektomorf.com
