Emperor, who are reuniting to play at Wacken 2014, posted the above photo on their official Facebook page yesterday. I just saw it.

The photo was taken by Bjørn Tore Moen.  It was accompanied by these words:

“Emperor – In the Nightside Eclipse 2014.
Faust – Ihsahn – Samoth”

Let the rampant speculation begin. And if you happen to actually know what it means, please clue us in. And please don’t tell me that it’s just the 20th anniversary of the album and nothing more. That’s no fun.

  1. It’s the 20 year anniversary of In The Nightside Eclipse, hence they’re revisiting it for these reunion shows, with the line-up from the album (including Faust, but minus Tchort).

  2. My guess would be they’re going to tour and play that album in full. As much as I wish they were going to make a new album I kind of don’t think we’ll ever get one.

  3. It just means they are doing an anniversary tour/show playing the entire album. I can’t find it now, but a few weeks ago i read an interview with Ihsahn where he said very clearly that a new album is not happening.

  4. “In the Nightside Eclipse” is the code phrase insiders have been using to keep their new project secret: Emperor is reuniting so they can play as the backing band for Baby Metal.

  5. very, very cool! i wouldn’t mind at all if they were playing Nightside Eclipse in full. and i’m thinking that must have been a very, very, very cold photoshoot

  6. Fairly certain this means they are going to djent the album up with a re-recording. It’s obvious, gaaawd!

  7. Surprised not to see Trym on drums, but I guess it makes sense if they’re gonna play ITNE in it’s entirely. Plus I guess the majority of heat from Faust’s prior deeds have cooled down enough to officially have him in the band. I wonder who will play bass. I dearly hope it’s Mortiis with full troll-makeup!
