This wicked Emperor t-shirt features a blood-red print of the band's logo above a mounted ghastly spectre, wielding a massive scythe and no doubt on the way to collect unsuspecting lost souls. This character was first depicted on the band's 1993 self-titled debut album and is a perfect addition to any Emperor fan's collection.
Emperor is a Norwegian black metal band formed in 1991. They are regarded as highly influential to emerging black metal bands. They were active for a little under a decade, due to some of their members being incarcerated for murder and arson of churches. They regrouped for very brief periods to play small tours but never recorded any new music during that time. Their members were all devoted pagans and Satanists, and most of their music is steeped in the culture of Nordic Paganism. They fully believe the church is evil, which is why they began to burn churches themselves. Skal!
