Imperial Triumphant is sincerely one of the most fascinating technical acts in all of modern metal. Having formed in 2005, the band has created a plethora of fascinating compositions that defy simple labeling; you cannot define this band by just one genre or style of music.
Their latest studio album, 2022’s Spirit of Ecstasy, is a profound work that presents blackened death metal with a jazz mentality; there is a stunning brilliance to this record in how it technically whirls and shifts about. Containing abrupt time signature shifts, intriguing uses of pacing, multiple stylistic fusions, and a number of various atmospheric blends, Spirit of Ecstasy is pure sonic chaos (and we mean that in the best way possible).
So of course it makes us super happy to hear that the band will be embarking on a United States headlining tour next year! Supporting the band is Cloak and Couch Slut. Speaking to this upcoming headlining tour, Imperial Triumphant vocalist and guitarist Zachary Ezrin shares the following comment:
“Imperial Triumphant will be bringing the chaos of New York City to the eastern coast of the USA this winter. We are excited to be accompanied by black metal band Cloak and fellow metropolitans Couch Slut on this excursion. This will be our first headline tour since 2021 and we are elated to bring our golden ritual to a few select cities. We will be joined by horns and special guests making this tour one not to be missed.”
