The Top Ten

1 I Am the Black Wizards

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

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

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

One of the best guitar riffs ever made. - juan101

2 Inno a Satana

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. - metalfan1999

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

I just adore this song. Peace out.

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

5 With Strength I Burn

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...

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