Speaking with Loud TV at Hellfest 2019, Emperor frontman Ihsahn discussed the possibility of Emperor recording new material, saying once again that it won't happen.
Ihsahn: "As you know, Emperor developed, at some point, I ended up making more and more of the music and eventually I did all the music. We'd rather stop at the level where we were all creatively involved, rather than doing it for keeping the logo or for any of those reasons. At this point, there's so much nostalgia attached to what we do, and we've been in the privileged position that people have developed similar relationships to these old songs that we did, as we are fans, to other bands. It's a very humbling position to be in. If you turned it around, what kind of Emperor could we possibly do? We should make something that sounds like old Emperor, or should we do something like Emperor would sound today? If it was up to me, Emperor would sound like my solo records because that's how I write metal. It's kind of a lose-lose thing. The whole point of black metal, people want something that is real and has integrity of what it is."
