Imperialist Announces Debut Album “Cipher”

Black metal band Imperialist will unleash debut album “Cipher” on November 28th, 2017. Check out the cover art and track listing below.

Imperialist was established in Los Angeles in early 2013 by Sergio Soto. Once the compositions had been crafted, Sergio called upon Rod Quinones, a long-time friend who had been playing the drums for over a decade due to his extensive training in drumline and his high school marching band.

Soto and Quinones quickly gathered an ease in working through the compositions and decided to request for Bryant, the other half of the Quinones, to join them as the second pair of virtuosic strings. Once the songs had been further conquered, they gained Adrian Castaneda on bass, as he had learned bass early on in his studies, and was ready to transition to a more serious target.

At the beginning of 2017, Imperialist ventured to Trench Studios to record and mix this debut full-length album with John Trench in Pomona, CA. “Cipher” was mastered by Ken Sorceron (Abigail Williams, The Faceless, Aborted).

Deus Otiosus Issues “Rise” Album Track-By-Track Breakdown

The upcoming third album “Rise” from Danish death metal band Deus Otiosus will be coming out on Deepsend Records June 10th.

Guitarist and main composer Henrik Engkjær has now released a track-by-track breakdown of “Rise,” which can be seen below. You can also hear the track “Iron Rule” after the jump.

#1 ”Rising War” An atypical opener; with it’s pounding one-beat rhythm, ”Rising War” alludes to the hastened heartbeats of those who are covered by the rising shadows of war.

#2 ”Iron Rule” When war is over and won, time has come to dorn the crown and establish a Hobbesian iron rule to oppress any possible opponent. The second song on ”Rise” proceeds to do just that with it’s fast and furious Machiavellian grab for power.

#3 ”Don’t Fuck With The Dead” An old school death metal song with and old and familiar warning: Remember those who have died. Know history and draw knowledge from that.

#4 ”Breeding Maggots” A thrashing, speeding and scorcing song to listen to while searching out and destroying your enemies.

#5 ”Vultures” In war and conflict the victor will punish and oppress the conquered. And midways into the album, ”Vultures” drags the pace down to the slow and heavy echoes of Prometheus’ eternal enslavement and suffering.

#6 ”Walk The Shadows” Unlike Prometheus, not all dark, rebellious forces are tamed and captured. And in the rims of civilisation, darkness walks unchallenged and unseen. The fast and vehement raging of wild winds is here cloaked in eerie and demonic melodies.

#7 ”Stand Up And Fight” No one can rise up without defeating those who block their path. Here we have a violent metal song, that doesn’t sound like an epileptic attack but more like a very real and fatal beating.

#8 ”Will And Fear” The works of Nietzsche, Poe and Lovecraft a.o. have long ago proven that those who seek greatness will always walk alone. Even though ”Will And Fear” is another of the faster songs on ”Rise”, the songs definitely also treads it’s own musical path.

#9 ”Fall Of The West” All things must end and so Rise ends with a Fall. But before the end complete, more atrocities remain. And so the closer and standout track of the album combines the thoughts of Orwell, Kaczynski and Lovecraft into suffocation dystopia.
