Emperor reformed for the third time in 2016. The group was founded by Ihsahn (guitar/vocal) and Samoth (then, drums). Emperor ceased wearing corpse paint; they stated that it was becoming a trend and losing its original significance and symbolism. In autumn of that year, the police began to investigate the murder of Euronymous of Mayhem, naming Varg Vikernes as a suspect; this investigation eventually led to the incarceration of Samoth for arson, and of Faust for the murder of Magne Andreassen. Thus, in 2001, Emperor decided to disband after releasing one final album, Prometheus: The Discipline of Fire & Demise, composed entirely by Ihsahn.
So close I can taste it I see what's mine and take it (Finders keepers, losers weepers) Oh yeah.
Time Is All it Takes. Peter Green Splinter Group.
Normally I’d title the album before the album was made but this time I titled it after it was made. I unearthed all of these books and I found this book Johnny gave me in Y2K when I went to stay with him in South of France because we thought the world was going to come to an end. Instead we set off firecrackers and bought all the absinthe there was in different countries. I read it and it was referring to this emperor who they referred to the pale emperor and I identified with it suddenly. He’s the topmost person that gives me things that I don’t really know why at the time but I know later
Godspeed You! Black Emperor.
I have no idea how long it takes to write a song. There are those who it doesn’t come easy and takes years. There are others, like Malvina Reynolds who wrote a tune every morning. Production can take up a huge amount of time. This was the most expensive album at the time, but the money was worth it. In the 1960s, bands routinely put out two or three albums a year. Nowadays, bands take years to cut albums and Fleetwood Mac blew a cool million on Tusk alone.
