As the Shadows Rise is an EP by the Norwegian black metal band Emperor. It was recorded in December 1992, during the same session as the Emperor EP, but not released until 1994. The three songs on the EP are re-recordings from the Wrath of the Tyrant demo.

It was later re-released on the split album True Kings of Norway with Immortal, Dimmu Borgir, Ancient and Arcturus.

The cover art is a woodcut by Gustave Doré (1832–1883).
