Extreme metal outfit Imperial Triumphant have unveiled details of their landmark new album, “Vile Luxury”. The album will be released by Gilead Media and Throat Ruiner Records on July 13th.
Imperial Triumphant have unleashed the first new track off “Vile Luxury” in the form of a music video. The track, a violent, cacophonous, and wholly challenging take on forward-thinking black metal titled “Swarming Opulence” is streaming exclusively via REVOLVER Magazine.
New York’s nebulous, avant-garde metal outfit Imperial Triumphant redefine sonic darkness on their ambitious new album, “Vile Luxury”. A turbulent, frenetic take on experimental noise and progressive black metal, Imperial Triumphant embody the most austere side of the New York underground. Chaos, menagerie, and the perils of the city clash with its reputation for majesty and extravagance. The band aim to portray the juxtaposition between high society and urban decay.
“Our city is like the corpse of a giant.” The band explains. “What was once so bright, grand and spectacular, is now filled with greedy maggots writhing towards their share of ‘success’. We don’t support it nor are we against. We only play the sounds of the New York City as we hear them.”
“Vile Luxury” combines the various musical elements that follow well within the tradition of music in New York, a monolith of the Western world, of constant experimentation and appropriation of all things that enter it, never leaving the same as it came.
