Five Classic EMPEROR album's are being re-released in limited edition CD box sets that include a digipak CD with CD-ROM extras, a 48CM X 48CM double sided poster with unseen photos, and an interview booklet - each is limited to 5000 worldwide.

Emperor formed in 1991. Their recordings have sold in excess of 600,000 units worldwide and their impact on the whole black/extreme metal scene is second to none. In late June the band will headline two major festivals: the first in France (Hellfest) and the second in Finland (Tuska Festival) as well as select shows in the USA.

The Emperor albums being reissued in this format are the following:

IN THE NIGHTSIDE ECLIPSE
IX EQUILIBRIUM
ANTHEMS TO THE WELKIN AT DUSK
PROMETHEUS
WRATH OF THE TYRANNT

PlasticHead Distribution's site show a release date of August 20, 2007 on each of the reissues. You can pre-order the box-sets here.

Why do this? Why didn't they just do this when they re-issued their catalog not long ago with bonus vids? Sounds like a money grab for the label. Wrath of the mother f***ing Tyrant.
