In the Nightside Eclipse is the first studio album and fourth official release by Norwegian black metal band Emperor, released in 1994 through Candlelight Records. It was the last album to feature drummer Faust and the only one to feature one-time bassist Tchort. Considered a landmark in the black metal scene, the album has been ranked by critics as one of the most influential albums of the genre. It also contains some of Emperor's best known tracks, "I Am the Black Wizards" and "Inno a Satana".

Eclipse as the odd man out. Emperor had some sort of vision when they went to write the swirling riffs of Into the Infinity of Thoughts and decided to give keyboards a majority stake in the atmospheric stock. It was a bold choice given the fact that keyboards can be an overpowering influence even when paired next to the abrasiveness of black metal, but it was a choice that proved to be more complementary rather than opposing. Letting the guitars do the heavy work in manufacturing an overtly raw base allows the black metal part of symphonic black metal to not be pushed aside by the genre’s leading namesake. Indeed, the symphonies woven by the heavy keyboard usage lend a mystical aura to the record, one that clashes brilliantly with the sinister underpinnings of the blasting drums and wailing shrieks. In the Nightside Eclipse is a masterwork because of this compositional balance.
