EMPEROR: Video Clips Of New York City Performance Posted Online

July 15, 2006

Two short, low-quality clips of Norwegian black metallers EMPEROR performing at the B.B. King Blues club in New York City on Friday, July 14 have been posted online at YouTube.com: Video#1, Video#2. The group's setlist for the concert was as follows:

01. Into The Infinity Of Thoughts / The Burning Shadows Of Silence / Cosmic Keys To My Creations & Times (medley)
02. Thus Spake The Nightspirit
03. An Elegy Of Icaros
04. Curse You All Men
05. With Strength I Burn
06. Towards The Pantheon
07. The Majesty Of The Nightsky
08. The Loss And Curse Of Reverence
09. In The Wordless Chamber
10. Inno A Satana
11. The Wanderer (from tape)
12. I Am The Black Wizards
13. Ye Entranceperium
14. Opus A Satana (from tape)

As previously reported, EMPEROR arrived on U.S. soil for the first time in years one member short. Due to continued delays via the U.S. Immigration Services, guitarist Samoth was unable to enter the United States in time for the NYC dates — this despite daily calls from both Norwegian and U.S. representatives of the band to multiple departments in the U.S. embassy in Oslo and Stateside governmental departments and agencies.

EMPEROR's next live appearance is scheduled for July 16 at the Key Club in West Hollywood. Their final U.S. performance will take place on July 17 at the House of Blues in West Holywood.
