As reported earlier, EMPEROR have announced that they will reunite to perform In the Nightside Eclipse at Wacken Open Air festival 2014 with drummer Faust. However, what was not clear was whether the band would be reuniting for good or simply for more reunion shows. Ihsahn provided the clarification we all asked for:
“EMPEROR will be celebrating the 20th anniversary of ‘In The Nightside Eclipse’ at next year´s Wacken Open Air. Ihsahn and Samoth will be joined by Faust on drums, and they will perform the album in its entirety.
“There will be no new studioalbum or a world wide tour, only a few exclusive festival appearances next year, to mark the celebration of this landmark album.”
