Emperor To Reunite, Headline Wacken Open Air 2014


How sweet is this? Legendary band Emperor will reform and headline Wacken Open Air 2014 for the 25th anniversary of the fest. The news was announced earlier today at Wacken’s press conference which was attended by Ihsahn (Vegard Sverre Tveitan) and Samoth (Tomas Haugen).

On the official Wacken fest page it reads: Small surprise in the morning: Todays Ihsahn Meet & Greet will be transformed into a real Emperor Meet & Greet! We will see you there at 01:45 o’clock at the Relentless Meet & Greet Stand! Is there something going on…?

“Press conference with Ihsahn and surprise Samoth. They will play Wacken together in 2014! Guess who is back!”

Emperor’s last studio album was 2001’s “Prometheus: The Discipline of Fire and Demise.”
