Experimental black metal outfit Imperial Triumphant have announced the release of a new full length and their follow up to 2013’s Goliath EP. Titled Abyssal Gods, the new record was recorded at Amy Mills Studios (Epistasis, etc) in Pennsylvania and was mastered by Colin Marston (Gorguts, Krallice, etc) at Menegroth, The Thousand Caves in New York. It will be released on March 10 via Aural Music/Code666. The album’s artwork and track listing can be found after the break.
Decibel have premiered the first scathing, disfigured single from the record, “Dead Heaven”. Imperial Triumphant founder/main composer Ilya Ezrin had the following comments on the track:
“Although we are proud to be born in such a renown place, Abyssal Gods as a whole addresses New York City as a cancer of the world and the absolute fist of the universe. ‘Dead Heaven’ is the psalm of the end of the world. It deals with the universal deconstruction and celestial collapse. The lyrics were actually inspired by the observatory space lecture scene in Rebel Without A Cause.”

The band will also be heading on a short tour in support of the record in May with Thantifaxath. Those dates can be found below.
