Iron Imperium Posts “Dead Ahead” Video

Iron Imperium just released a new music video for the “Dead Ahead” single, which can be seen below.

Inverse Records also comments: “Iron Imperium is alternative/heavy metal band from Jyväskylä, Finland formed in 2012, whom music is inspired by bands like Avenged Sevenfold, System of a Down and ’80’s heavy metal.

“The band’s lyric poetry swims in the dark waters. The band could be described as modern metal, among which has a little bit of 80’s metal, darkness, and grunge, but still it is an energetic and honest metal music.”

Lyric Video For New Track “The Unseen One” Issued By Imperium

U.K. technical brutal death metal act Imperium has issued a lyric video for the new track “The Unseen One.” The song appears on the new album “Titanomachy,” which drops via Ultimate Massacre Productions on May 7th 2016.

As with every song on the album, “The Unseen One” tells a story steeped in Greek mythology and lore. Vocalist Doug Anderson (who also plays drums for Unfathomable Ruination) elaborates, “‘The Unseen One’ is a journey deep into the abyss, where the lord of the underworld resides. Cruel, but fair, ‘The Unseen One’ was a son of Kronos, and brother to Zeus. He was the jailer of hell, who rules over the dead.”

“This track really spoke to me as a single straight away,” Doug continues. “It combines some of the classic high intensity riffage of Imperium, with a full showcase of vocal range. The chorus ended up with quite a catchy hook, and Mike gets to really shine, with some of his best solo work to date!”

The track listing for the album is:

1. Intro
2. Castrate The Father Of The Sky
3. Beast From Beneath
4. Descend Abysmal Void
5. Ingurgitate The Traitor
6. Into Abode Of The Dead
7. The Unseen One
8. Skies That Bear Thunder
9. Phlegethon Rising
10. Minos
11. Neither Like Gods Nor Men
12. Titanomachy

Details Of New Album “Titanomachy” Issued By Imperium

Following the release of the acclaimed debut “Sacramentum” in 2012 (which featured Trigger the Bloodshed and The Bridal Procession members Robert Purnell and Steve Garnier), U.K. technical brutal death metal act Imperium have reshuffled the ranks and bounced back by unveiling a brand new masterclass in technical death metal entitled “Titanomachy.” The album drops via Ultimate Massacre Productions on May 7th 2016. A preview clip can be heard in the player below.

“Titanomachy” features twelve tracks of ferocious yet epic metal, steeped in ancient Greek mythology and lore. Experience bleak tales of betrayal, brutality, destructive monsters and war between the Gods and Titans themselves. “Titanomachy” is huge in both lyrical scale and musical depth.

Founding member and chief songwriter Mike Alexander had been working alone until he enlisted Doug Anderson, drummer of Unfathomable Ruination and ex-Bloodshot Dawn, however Doug was not brought in for his skill behind the kit, but rather his voice.

“When I first heard the Imperium material I was really impressed, and the opportunity to work on something like this was an immediate attraction to me,” comments Doug. “The album feels huge. Epic! Whilst maintaining a constant level of brutality, and technicality. Mike’s guitar playing is astonishing, but it isn’t just an album of show boating, There are real memorable songs here, and a heavy signature sound too.”

Mike Alexander comments on the writing process, “I was writing over a very intense two year period and then when Doug came in and we got together in the studio with our producer Chuck Creese it all just gelled and flowed. Every day in the studio was such a rush as everything just came together so well, the chemistry was awesome and the resulting album was completed beyond all expectations.”

Doug adds, “The debut album was based heavily on Ancient Roman history, but the new record falls deep into Greek Mythology. The Greek gods of course heavily influenced the Roman’s, so in terms of concept, you could call this album a prequel. And at the climax of the album, we cover the ‘Titanomachy’ itself. The war between the Titans and the Gods. I think the lyrics reflect the music well, as the songs are very grand in scale and if a bloody war between the Titans and the Gods isn’t grandiose, then what is!?”

The track listing for the album is:

1. Intro
2. Castrate The Father Of The Sky
3. Beast From Beneath
4. Descend Abysmal Void
5. Ingurgitate The Traitor
6. Into Abode Of The Dead
7. The Unseen One
8. Skies That Bear Thunder
9. Phlegethon Rising
10. Minos
11. Neither Like Gods Nor Men
12. Titanomachy
