Redefining Darkness commented:

“In April of 2016, we were fortunate enough to partner with then up-in-coming NY Black Metal sensations, Imperial Triumphant, on their Inceste EP. The EP received critical acclaim and took the band to new heights at the time as they experimented even more with the dark and depraved. In regards to EP, the band stated, “Inceste is an interpretation of the works of French aristocrat Marquis de Sade. We wanted to make a record that was sordid, invasive, and child like at times. Extreme highs and lows are everywhere on this EP. The music always reflects the lyrics. Nothing on Inceste is stable. Everything instrument bends and twists and wrenches, forcing its way inside of you.”

With the pandemic hitting the industry hard, the band wanted to stay busy and dove into some creative projects, one of which being the re-issue of Inceste. Every detail was labored over to ensure the band’s ultimate vision for the release was achieved. The Vinyl release was pressed in an edition of 666 in two different variants – Emissions on Black Marble / Blood & Semen – both of which turned out absolutely stunning.

The jacket comes in the form of a lavish gatefold that includes a 12”x24” foldout insert. We all felt it important to make sure the packaging reflected the band’s aesthetic and as such, the gatefold jacket represents the luxury / high class image that Manhattan loves to put on display, while the insert buried within represents the seedy and vile underbelly of the city that keeps itself hidden from most.

We wanted to make sure the CD would not play second fiddle to the vinyl, so we had to make it particularly special. The CD itself is Gold, and comes in a Hardback Digibook with never before seen photography of NYC. Both vinyl and cd formats include bonus tracks, including a bass cover of Miles Davis’ Nefertiti, alongside other haunting musical apparitions.”

Imperial Triumphant added:

“We are thrilled to work with Redefining Darkness once more to put together such a unique piece. It has been a pleasure to bring this 2016 EP back to life in a new way. There are many aspects to explore both visually and sonically so we hope you enjoy the great work.”

Imperial Triumphant Premiere “Excelsior” Video

Imperial Triumphant have premiered a new video for their song “Excelsior.” This track is from the band’s latest album “Alphaville.“ The group commented:

“Many people flock to the big city with golden dreams in their eyes willing to do whatever it takes to succeed, like the ones they see at the top. It is the seal of approval; The medieval crest upon which the very fabric of humanity’s elevation prevails. The failure and losing streak is a deceptive reality that slowly finds its way as diminishing returns, caught up in the illusory system. Ever upwards.”

Imperial Triumphant Premiere “Atomic Age” Video

Imperial Triumphant have premiered a new video for their new song “Atomic Age.” This track is from the band’s new album “Alphaville,“ which will be released on July 31. The group commented:

“Welcome to the age of a bright future and unprecedented optimism. A time when man’s dreams are realized in the biggest way. The most dangerous time ever known with the most existential responsibility ever bestowed. A NEW age of the atomic dream and ten thousand years forward of computerized biology looking to the past for the same answers. That mid century Atomic Age; Long lasting to go that extra mile, now and forever.”

Imperial Triumphant Premiere Video For New Song “City Swine” Feat. Meshuggah’s Tomas Haake

Imperial Triumphant have premiered a new video for their new song “City Swine.” This track features Meshuggah drummer Tomas Haake and it will appear on the band’s new album “Alphaville,“ which is set to be released on July 31. Bassist Steve Blanco commented:

“In the depths of the big city lurking beneath the lowest forms is a wretched swine that can be of no use. Laughing somewhere above is an equally wretched swine, that dumps on everything in its path. Both serve no purpose, are ineffective, and remain unprofitable in the eyes of the big machine.”

Imperial Triumphant Premiere “Rotted Futures” Video

Imperial Triumphant have premiered a new video for their new song “Rotted Futures.” This track is from the band’s new album “Alphaville,“ which will be released on July 31. The group commented:

“No one knows what the future shall look like. Well, some might know the shape of things to come. Some will bet on it. Perhaps we’re living it. Perhaps it will be quite different. If we had a special looking glass that could reveal millennia of repeated timelines we might observe big dreams for a bright future, built upon systemic shifts that eventually fall. Behold the future.”
