LEGACY OF EMPTINESS - OVER THE PAST (2017)

"Not since Emperor's legendary second album, Anthems To The Welkin At Dusk, has an album captured the raw-yet-contemporary splendor of True Norwegian black metal. Incredible stuff!" - BraveWords.com 2017

The second wave of Norwegian black metal was the true beginning. Bands such as EMPEROR, SATYRICON, IMMORTAL, ENSLAVED, and DARKTHRONE forged a blazing path in the northern, winter skies that could be seen the world over.



It was during this time, 1995, that the seeds of what would become LEGACY OF EMPTINESS were born. Twenty-seven years later, and we are presented with a bounty of symphonic black metal, in the form of new album Over The Past, Set to release on June 12th via Sweden's Black Lion Records.

The album traverses many emotional peaks and valleys - scaling mountain tops with massive sounding keyboard crescendos, then sudden, blitzkrieg-like plummets to the deepest, darkest caverns of Nordic black metal. Not since Emperor's lengendary second album, Anthems To The Welkin At Dusk, has an album captured the raw-yet-contemporary splendor of true of true Norwegian black metal.
