After laboring in the shadows for nearly half a decade, releasing a string of obscure demos and EPs and honing their baroque, highly conceptualized strain of black metal psychosis, New York City's IMPERIAL TRIUMPHANT have unveiled their debut full-length. Entitled 'Abominamentvm' and currently available on the band's Bandcamp page, the album's eight tracks were brought into being by Colin Marston at his Menegroth: The Thousand Caves studio. 'Abominamentvm' was officially released on September 5th, 2012, and currently exists solely in digital form (though plans for physical manifestations are forthcoming).
The music contained therein is suffocating, disjointed, unsettling - an uneasy marriage of dark ambient, atonal riffing, Deathspell Omega, early Immortal, and drug days Nachtmystium, filtered through a philosophical, nihilistic lens. IMPERIAL TRIUMPHANT's ranks include two members of similarly twisted experimental death metal troupe PYRRHON, and feature lyrics inspired not by Satan, but by the evil in man himself, as well as the writings of Rousseau and Nietzsche.
