Italian symphonic black metallers SHADOWTHRONE pay tribute to EMPEROR with cover of “Ancient Queen”, an anthem taken from the cult demo “Wrath Of The Tyrant”.

We wanted to cover a song of the band Emperor, and we have chosen ‘Ancient Queen’, because it’s a great track taken from their demo ‘Wrath of the Tyrant’. The band never re-released it on the following records. The riff and the style of this song are really atmospheric and far away from the sun. So we wanted to record a ShadowThrone version of it”, explains the band.
