Blood Music have been working with the reactivated Emperor on a vinyl box set of their complete works.
The label contends the box will be one of the largest ever assembled.
Here’s the press release:
“Blood Music is extremely, incredibly proud to announce the greatest extreme metal band of all-time to its roster – Emperor official! We’ve been working behind-the-scenes for more than a year — carefully compiling every detail of Emperor‘s oeuvre from the minute they began in 1991 until their final breath in 2007.
“We are working directly in conjunction with the members themselves to compile the most incredible, beautiful, and archival collection one could ever imagine into a massive COMPLETE WORKS box set, due to be released in approximately one year.
“This will be the first time the band’s music will be properly remastered for vinyl, as well as presented in true vinyl special editions of any kind. An insane honor for us to take part in.
“Start saving your money this minute. The box set will be a one-time only, limited edition pressing. There will be no copies of our records outside the box set this time. This will be a unique offering that will make a massive mark upon the history of metal and quickly vanish into thin air.
“Oh, and it will be the largest metal vinyl box set of all-time (beating out our Moonsorrow set) and one of the largest vinyl box sets ever created in the history of music. So really … if you want in on this. Start saving now.”
The box set will surface in early to mid-2015.
