Since you think you are so are so high and mighty, explain that statement.

Some of the best written metal ever is the downfall of Black Metal? Why? Because there's some fruity keyboards and melodramatic vocals? Might as well write Black Metal off as stillborn then since it has roots in Mercyful Fate.

I mean, I prefer In The Nightside Eclipse because despite having all the makings of a fruity album it still comes off as very feral and natural. Sure, Anthems lost quite a bit of that but there's still songwriting genius under the fluff. If you don't recognize that, why the fuck are you even listening to ITNE? One of it's main draws -- the fantastic songwriting -- is very much alive and present in Anthems.

Well put. In a nutshell, "Anthems" put black metal on the map. If that is a good or bad thing is completely up to interpretation. One can argue it had a mixture of clean singing, dramatic keyboards, etc, but there is one thing you can't deny and that is the songwriting, it's very strong and extremely solid as far as black metal goes. I still think the demo is the best for it's majestic nature, but I would be a naive bastard if I said "Anthems" was the downfall of black metal.

I like Anthems, though its generally about as far as I go with Emperor. The Wanderer is fucking great

If you can't judge a band by it's members hair cuts then there is no way to know anything about them.

Hair cults is it!
