Is Emperor perhaps the best black metal band out there? If so why? What is your favorite album?

Dimmu Borgir is a very polished band and in no way pure Black Metal. They're very good at doing the whole melodic and catchy black metal thing, but it's a completely different thing from Emperor.

Emperor? I rarely listen to their songs. When I was little album "Anthems to the welkin at Dusk 'is what I like from the Emperor .. Until now, even I still love it.. :)

Well, my personal favorite black metal band is Summoning, but Emperor is definitely a great band and important to the black metal genre. In the Nightside Eclipse is probably one of the best black metal albums ever (though my personal favorites from them are Anthems and Prometheus).
