imperial-triumphant-credit-michael-elmquist1

Avant-garde black metal force IMPERIAL TRIUMPHANT has just shared a new song from the band’s forthcoming EP Inceste. “Kaleidoscopic Orgies” has premiered via Decibel, who said about the track,

“…utilizes elements of death, doom, jazz, avant-garde, classical and more to create a feeling of unease and dread that few bands even approach. “.

Stream “Kaleidoscopic Orgies” alongside an interview with Ilya that dives into the details about the EP’s themes now at  [DECIBEL].

“Breath Of Innocence,” the first released track from Inceste, premiered recently via Stereogum and can be heard via YouTube below:

Like the band’s previous full-length Abyssal Gods, IMPERIAL TRIUMPHANT‘s new EP was mixed and mastered by Colin Marston (Gorguts, Krallice, Nader Sadek, Atheist, Origin etc.) at Menegroth, The Thousand Caves. This release sees the band diving into darker and more deranged territory than ever before. Inceste is set for release worldwide on Friday April 15th via Redefining Darkness Records. Digital and CD versions of Inceste can be pre-ordered via Bandcamp at this location.

Abyssal Gods, IMPERIAL TRIUMPHANT‘s 2015 full-length, is also available for streaming and purchase via Bandcamp here.

Info/Bio:
The epitome of a paradox, IMPERIAL TRIUMPHANT combines an obsession with musical progression with a philosophical fixation on destruction, decay, and the crumbling of the spiritual, mental, and physical fabric that binds humanity. Dissecting the lifeless corpse of post-industrial New York City and using a canvas of black metal, jazz fusion, death metal, doom, and various other soundscapes to paint a bleak portrait of a post-modern world left to rot, IMPERIAL TRIUMPHANT serves not as a voice in and of itself, but as many legions of tortured, aching screeches possessing a single entity with no goal in mind other than the mutilation of the benevolent host. Disregarding conventional references in extremity and replacing them with the mechanisms for cultivating a truly unnerving and abysmal atmosphere, this is not so much a metal album as it is an exercise in the deconstruction of the psyche. There is no preparing yourself. There is no hope. There is no beginning. There is only the eternal ending.

IMPERIAL TRIUMPHANT is:
Ilya – Vocals, Guitars, Orchestration
Growhowski – Drums
Blanco – Bass, Keyboards
Cohen – Drums

Redefining Darkness Records are proud to announce the signing of NYC’s  Imperial Triumphant and the release of their upcoming EP, Inceste, set for release this Spring in physical and digital format.

Imperial Triumphant’s “Abyssal Gods” is about New York City, and it accurately conveys the dichotomous senses of magnificence and derision, wealth and poverty, power and weakness, ecstasy and misery, that pervade the metropolis. I was fortunate enough to have this album as my introduction to the city when I relocated to NYC earlier this year, and it was the perfect soundtrack. In spirit and in sound, Imperial Triumphant is the black metal of the future.
-Dave Mustein’s #1 album of 2015, Metal Sucks

 

Imperial Triumphant’s debut full-length, the self released Abominamentvm, is a mad, confusing cacophony of bizarre riffs, weird time changes, and wonderfully prominent yet strange bass lines, all the while enhanced by a certain air of authenticity. 4/5

Imperial Triumphant truly operates within the upper echelons of American Black Metal. 10/10

Imperial Triumphant are one of the most important U.S. black metal acts currently active.

 ESCARNIUM was conceived in 2007 in Salvador, Brazil. The bands sole mission was to make simple classic Death Metal in the vein of Old School Death Metal of the 80’s & 90’s.

In 2009, ESCARNIUM recorded and released the debut demo entitled “Covered in Decadence,” which yielded good results and opened doors with Distros, Labels and Zines in Brazil and other countries.

Within these was Polish Distro, Fukking Till You Bleed, which released the 2010 Split Tape “Celebrating the World of Decadence” with the band INSIDE HATRED.

In 2011, ESCARNIUM recorded the EP called “Rex Verminorum” which was released by Polish label Hellthrasher.

In May 2012 their first full length CD ” Excrucianting Existence”  was released supported by a  European Tour. Two other splits would follow in 2012 & 2014 on Imperial Doom and Misanthropic Records.

REDEFINING DARKNESS RECORDS will be introducing ESCARNIUM to North America with a definitive collection of the bands previous efforts put all together on one disc with a new unreleased track giving a glimpse of what is to come from the band in the next year!
