The Top Ten
1 I Am the Black Wizards I Am the Black Wizards Cover Art

My favourite black metal song, from my favourite black metal album, by my favourite black metal band. WHY IS THIS NOT #1?

The ultimate black metal song. Definitely one of their best songs they have ever done!

No exception, this is the ultimate Emperor track and kills in every way possible

This song should definitely be number one in my opinion. Such an epic masterpiece!

2 Inno a Satana Inno a Satana Cover Art

Inno A Satana! Inno A Satana! Amazing ending song of a magical album. I like In the Nightside Eclipse a lot more than Anthems to the Welkin at Dusk.

Awesome song. Just getting into Emperor and black metal in general and this one stood out among the youtube playlist.

Oh mighty lord of the night, master of beasts, bringer of awe and derision!
What a start to this perfect hymn to santa.

I just adore this song. Peace out.

3 Into the Infinity of Thoughts Into the Infinity of Thoughts Cover Art
4 With Strength I Burn With Strength I Burn Cover Art

Greatest epic inward adventure told in a mysterious story of a night traveller
Full of meaning full verses that make you think for a while

All Emperor's songs, from all theirs albums are not form this word... I really like them all and very much...
However, With Strength I Burn is simply the first one and after Ye Entrancemperium...

Something elese

5 Ye Entrancemperium Ye Entrancemperium Cover Art

Probably the most formidable song from their discography. The intro to it is a blatant tribute to Euronymous who actually wrote that monstrous riff for one of Mayhem's tracks "Of Sodomy and War". Such an alluring intro that could very well be subsumed as a theme during evocation rituals.

6 Towards the Pantheon Towards the Pantheon Cover Art
7 Thus Spake the Nightspirit Thus Spake the Nightspirit Cover Art

A real symphonic masterpiece. The symphonic breakdown towards the end really makes you wanna band your head. Long Reign the Emperor!

Greatest Song by in my opinion the best black metal band to ever walk this earth

8 Cosmic Keys to My Creations and Times Cosmic Keys to My Creations and Times Cover Art

Evil! Those long vocal pauses in the background sounds really creepy plus I love Ihsahn's duck vocals.

9 Beyond the Great Vast Forest Beyond the Great Vast Forest Cover Art
10 I Curse You All Men I Curse You All Men Cover Art

First black song I've heard

4:15 in to the song. m/

15 The Majesty of the Nightsky The Majesty of the Nightsky Cover Art

Probably the most powerful song of this amazing band. This song is the symbol of the legend of Emperor

How can this one be rated so low! This is probably my favourite track on In The Nightside Eclispe
