Anthems to the Welkin at Dusk is the second studio album by Norwegian black metal band Emperor. It was released on 8 July 1997 through Candlelight Records and Century Black. The album was recorded in the Grieg Hall in Bergen, Norway. The opening guitar riff to "Ye Entrancemperium" is taken from an unnamed Mayhem song.

During the early writing period of this album (before Trym Torson joined), the band was rehearsing with a session drummer who went by the name of Mefisto. Also released on picture LP by Candlelight Records. The original US release on Century Black, and subsequent remastered versions, include bonus tracks: 09.

With Anthems To the Welkin at Dusk Nordic black metal troopers Emperor cleverly conjured up a bewildering banquet of a heavy rock album.

Album (Studio full-length). 1992년 데모테잎 Wrath Of The Tyrant, 1993년 미니LP Emperor을 발표한 Emperor는 데뷔작 In The Nightside Eclipse로 Black Metal계에서 최고의 위치에 오르게 되며 두 번째 앨범인 본작 Anthems To The Welkin At Dusk으로 말미암아 명성을 더욱 확고히 한다. 데뷔앨범과 더불어 Black Metal 역사상 가장 높은 지명도를 가지고 있는 앨범으로 수려한 멜로디라인, 뛰어난 구성과 녹음으로 장르의 오버그라운드화에 크나큰 공을 세웠다. 광폭한 사운드를 바탕으로 한 풍부한 키보드연주를 접할 수 있다. Best Track : With Strength I Burn, Opus A Satana (bonus track). MasterChef ( 75, 100 ).

The result was Anthems to the Welkin at Dusk, a magnificently conceived and executed opus that fulfills all of Emperor's promise and ambition. The biggest difference from its predecessor is the crisper, clearer production, which allows details in the arrangements to emerge far more readily.

With Anthems To the Welkin at Dusk Nordic black metal troopers Emperor cleverly conjured up a bewildering banquet of a heavy rock album. The icy Norwegian landscapes and its dooming desolation, languorous loneliness, deepest despair and ghastly gloom have been aptly translated by musical mastermind Ihsahn and his fellow Scandinavian warriors into loudly thundering riffs that storm past the heavens, beautifully bombastic and touchingly transcendent Wagnerian keyboard melodies that uplift listeners and lightning-fast battery by session drummer Trym (Enslaved) that always provide a soul-crushing sensation of staggering speed and awe-inspiring aggression inherent to the controversial music genre that is black metal. After a headily heroic and strikingly solemn introduction, Emperor’s second full-length outing bursts loose into a monolithic monster of a riff craftily created by Mayhem’s Euronymous –the long-deceased cult figure of the black metal underground. The opening track Ye Entrancemperium poses as one of the fastest and most furious tracks on this disc yet never fails to deliver the soaring and majestic magnitude typically associated with the highly acclaimed Emperor-sound – thus perennially surpassing the trademark primitive rawness of black metal with a luscious layer of simmering synths – in the case of Emperor never uniquely serving as a pause or interlude in the extreme metal onslaught but adding an apocalyptic edge to the furious riffing and fast-paced drumming. Thus Spake The Nightspirit takes a step back from the breakneck speeds, opting instead for a more romantic approach with doom-laden guitar melodies and touching clean vocals. The two ensuing tracks Ensorcelled by Khaos and teaser single The Loss and Curse of Reverence are lengthier enabling both the churning impact of the pummelling speed and the gorgeous melody of the symphonic interludes. The following duo of The Acclamation of Bonds and With Strength I Burn provide the poetic zenith of the album, emphasizing a fabulous feeling of grand glory that engenders images of valiant Norsemen from a mythical past and taking musicianship to the next level. The Wanderer serves as an apt instrumental finishing touch to the best heavy rock album ever.
A decent record, although definitely not in the same league as the quintessential debut "In The Nightside Eclipse" or the demo and Emperor/Enslaved split. Although the album is virtually identical stylewise from the previous album, it's the lesser one in all aspects. The sound suffers from a very odd mix job (surprising considering Pyttens reputation), the vocals are considerably less intense, the drumming, although competent, lacks the variety that worked so well on the debut, songwriting is a bit disjointed, and even the lyrics took a turn for the worse, replacing the metaphysical and poetic subjects with rather cliched swords & sorcery themes. But whatever its faults, the album still has the classic Emperor sound that made them famous all over it and sales were beyond all expectations, not in the least due to the big "comeback" hype.
You are the king of trolls, obviously... :- | This - as well as their previous albums - is an untouchable M-A-S-T-E-R-P-I-E-C-E !!!!!
Decent???I don't think so!It's simply a pure bm MASTERPIECE!!Best Emperor record ever!!
"a decent record" hahahahhahhha....please.... Ok 10 words minimum? lol lol olo lol lol lol lol.
