New York's Imperial Triumphant have returned with a new recording that continues the experimental black metal sound of previous recordings and this is a review of their 2016 ep "Inceste" which will be released in April by Redefining Darkness Records.
Atmospheric sounds start off the ep along with some avant garde and experimental elements which are done with some old fashioned instruments and after awhile spoken word samples are added onto the recording and after the intro the music goes into more of a heavier and melodic sound while also remaining experimental.
All of the musical instruments on the recording have a very powerful sound to them and the vocals use both black metal; screams and death metal growls while the songs also mix in a great amount of progressive structures as well as adding clean playing into some parts of the tracks and when the music speeds up a small amount of blast beats can be heard and the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts.
Imperial Triumphant creates another recording that takes their black metal roots of earlier recordings while also expanding on the death metal elements as well as getting more experimental and progressive with this newer release as well as picking up where they left off on their last full length, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover the works of Marquis De Sade.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Imperial Triumphant and if you are a fan of this band, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Kaleidoscope Orgies" and "Breath Of Innocence". 8 out of 10.
