1997 release from the legendary underground USBM project. Reissued in a 'noble digibook format' via Ukrainian label The Devil's Elixir. "Empire of Blood" was recorded between 1995 - 1997 and features a majority of rerecorded material from the "Vampyr - Throne of the Beast" album. This is an album to define cult Black Metal, to reinaugurate the obscure feeling of power and strength. This is designed to take the spirit into a medieval realm of ancient graves, castles and vampyric ghosts, its spells weaving webs of darkness through the shadow side.
