IMPERIAL TRIUMPHANT: NYC Experimental Black Metal Heathens Unveil New Tune Featuring Bloody Panda’s Yoshiko Ohara At No Clean Singing; Abyssal Gods Preorders Available

Abyssal Gods is the imminent new long player from New York City experimental black metal heathens, IMPERIAL TRIUMPHANT. Slated to pollute the lands next month via Italy-based Aural Music’s Code666 imprint, the band’s second full-length was tracked at Solitude Studios in Pennsylvania and Amy Mills Studios (Couch Slut, Epistasis) in New York , mixed and mastered by Colin Marston (Gorguts, Krallice, Nader Sadek, Atheist, Origin etc.) at Menegroth, The Thousand Caves in New York and boasts the apocalyptic cover craftings of Andrew Tremblay (Deadbots, Downlow’d, Deathface etc.). Focused on urban decay and the impending extinction of mankind, IMPERIAL TRIUMPHANT‘s Abyssal Gods boasts ten traumatic psalms of strategically-composed black-addled mayhem bedecked in angular riff invasions, bestial vocal tirades, dissonant atmospheres and an overall air of disease, dread and looming disaster.

In advance of its unveiling, today No Clean Singing spews forth sixth movement, the haunting “Krokodil,” sung entirely in Russian, for public devastation, noting, “Instead of pummeling you into the grave like a lot of Abyssal Gods, ‘Krokodil’ esoterically floats like a ghost underwater, an oceanic burial ceremony compounded by a multiplicity of layers and echoing a kind of trippy bewilderment. To add some further spunk to the already warped palette, the band incorporate a creepy inverted Russian Orthodox style chant written by vocalist, guitarist, and composer Ilya Goddessraper. This ethereal yet dense nightmare-scape is further embellished by female choral chants provided by Bloody Panda’s Yoshiko Ohara as well as male choral vocals by RK Halvørson.”

Elaborates the band, “This tracks is unique to the album. Essentially it’s a Russian doom song meant to emulate the effects of desomorphine — the street name being krokodil. The side effects of this drug cause the skin to become leathery like a crocodile’s. Rotting of the flesh is also common in longtime users. Lyrically I chose a Russian poem by Nikolay Nekrasov called ‘I Shall Soon Fall Prey To Rot.’ The piece is sung entirely in Russian. The track is a journey of psychedelia and desperation that ends with complete collapse.”
