Emperor – Photo Gallery 17th May @ The Forum, Melbourne VIC

The Forum, Melbourne VIC
May 17, 2023
Support: The Amenta

Emperor are officially back in the country and they kicked off their In The Nightside Eclipse Tour at the beautiful Forum Theatre in Melbourne. Opening the night was mask-sporting The Amenta, who drew us in with an elegance of the brutal variety and haunting face hiders.

Then the main event. Emperor hit the stage to thunderous applause, lead by the iconic Ihsahn and what happened next needs to be witnessed by all fans of heavy music. The Norwegian black metal icons band played through their debut album In The Nightside Eclipse which was the main focus of this tour, along with a host of favorites.

Our photographer was there to capture the night for you.

The Majesty of the Nightsky
I Am the Black Wizards
Inno a Satana
Curse You All Men!
Thus Spake the Nightspirit
The Loss and Curse of Reverence
With Strength I Burn
