With Abyssal Gods, the imminent new full-length from New York City investigation black metal legion, IMPERIAL TRIUMPHANT, now just days from contaminating the planet, today Cvlt Nation offers up a stream of the record in its twisted entirety.
Captured at Solitude Studios in Pennsylvania and Amy Mills Studios (Couch Slut, Epistasis) in New York and mixed and mastered by Colin Marston (Gorguts, Krallice, Nader Sadek, Atheist, Origin etc.) at Menegroth, The Thousand Caves, also in New York, Abyssal Gods channels its ire through ten harrowing hymns of meticulously-composed black-torn mayhem bedecked in angular riff invasions, bestial vocal tirades, dissonant atmospheres and an overall air of dread, disease and looming disaster. The record includes guest choral chants from Bloody Panda’s Yoshiko Ohara as well as male choral vocals by RK Halvørson in the track ‘Krokodi’ (sung completely in Russian).
Following teasers from Decibel Magazine and No Clean Singing, today Cvlt Nation delivers Abyssal Gods in full, gushing of its sonic brilliance, “My brain is being pulled in a 1,000 demonic directions by the power of the new IMPERIAL TRIUMPHANT…This band’s music is an abstract portal into an ugly sonic reality, where Sun Ra is a black metal overlord and IMPERIAL TRIUMPHANT are his tools of destruction. If you try to put this band’s music in a box you deserve a slap for that, because the only creative rule they respect is chaos!”
Pay heed at THIS LOCATION.
IMPERIAL TRIUMPHANT has been orchestrating vanguard black metal since 2005. Citing an eclectic palette of influences that includes everything from Deathspell Omega to Polish post-serialism composer Krzysztof Penderecki, the band features members of investigational death metal contortionists, Pyrrhon as well as instrumental rock collective Secret Chiefs 3 and New York death metal legion Malignancy.
