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.”

Devastation On The Nation Tour Featuring Rotting Christ, Borknagar, Etc. Officially Cancelled

The Devastation On The Nation Tour, which was supposed to feature Rotting Christ, Borknagar, Wolfheart, Abigail Williams, and Imperial Triumphant, has officially been cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic. This news comes after the trek was previously postponed to 2021.

The following statement was posted on September 25:

“There is no easy way to put this. Devastation on the Nation Tour 2021 is canceled.

When we rescheduled the tour we thought that in a year everything would be okay again, but it still is not and we have no clear picture of what the future holds. More and more venues are closing down every month. This virus (COVID-19) has ruined everything for so many bands, musicians, and venues.

Even if the tour were to still happen in February/March of 2021, how many more venues will be closed down? What will the capacity restrictions be for each show? How will 3 out of 5 bands from a different country survive here IF the borders reopen? It’s impossible to know and at this point there is no light at the end of the tunnel. We will not reschedule again until we 100% know that it will be possible for the tour to happen and that the bands from outside of the US are able to come here.

All tickets purchased will be refunded. If you purchased tickets via https://www.metalfestivaltours.com/devastationonthenation, we will have those tickets refunded right away. If you purchased tickets NOT on this website, please find your email and email the company that you purchased them through for a refund.

We thank you all for the support and we will be back one day.

Aside from this, I will be doing an AMA today starting at 3pm EST/2pm CST/12pm PST via my Twitch channel. Speaking about DOTN, touring, marketing, listening to your bands music, and much more. If you’d like to join this, it is free! I’d like to talk to you all. I know this a very rough time for everyone but we’re all trying to stay positive.”

Behemoth Announce “In Absentia Dei” Livestream Concert

Behemoth will be playing a special livestream show on September 5. The virtual concert will be held at a “secret church location” and it will also feature an opening set from Imperial Triumphant.

A press release offered more information on the performance:

“The event will be streamed in high definition 4K, with an immersive experience option, allowing viewers to choose from 8 different camera angles in the multi-camera shoot or watch the ‘Director’s Cut’.”

Frontman Adam “Nergal” Darski added:

“We bring a new offering for our faithful Legions! You’ve seen Behemoth in many places across the globe, but never before in the Holy Church. This is a truly innovative event of which the likes have not been seen before. There will be ritual, there will be sacrilege and all from the comfort of your home. A worldwide streamed event for A New Aeon indeed! In Absentia Dei.”

Tickets can be found HERE.

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.”
