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.”
Stream the track here.
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.

Initially featured in a prior Aftermath Straight To The Point review, the young forebears of “Pittsburgh Heavy Shit” in Killing Thing have bestowed onto American Aftermath the opportunity to unveil their latest step into aural brutality. Following a demo, an EP and track appearances on a split and compilation (download it all free here!), the chaotic hardcore quartet have returned, armed with a new vocalist and drummer and ready to enter the modern metallic hardcore revival lexicon with a new EP due out soon on Head2Wall Records, of which the video for the first track is featured below. Directed by Tyler Long (Run, Forever and Black Mask) and recorded by Dave Rosenstraus (of Hounds of Hate and Pissed Jeans fame), “Derision” brandishes a brash, greater 90s metallic hardcore centered sound whilst underplaying but not completely abandoning the group’s groovy beatdown, which comes exemplified in the best way in the last seconds of the minute and forty crusher. As for the video, bloody, live and simple. Stream “Derision” below and be sure to catch Killing Thing on their Midwest stomp, details also below. Continue reading
