The Skinny: In just a few short days, New York City black metal legion, Imperial Triumphant, will unleash their latest recorded studio rituals in the form of Goliath. Featuring two unsettling tracks of grimness, the nihilistic Goliath was forged on February of 2013 at Menegroth the Thousand Caves, and engineered, mixed and mastered by Colin Marston (Gorguts, Krallice, Nader Sadek, Atheist, Origin etc.). Goliath centers itself around the biblical accounts of Sodom and Gomorrah – two cities, synonymous with impenitent sin, consumed by fire, brimstone and eternal sorrow under the manifestation of God’s wrath on the Day of Judgment. Goliath serves as the soundtrack to the suffering – a scorching spate of perverted Deathspell Omegian riff sequences, angular pace shifts and feral vocal cascades encased in an atmosphere of true, unabridged torment.
Formed in 2005, Imperial Triumphant consists of New York City futurists transcending the confines of modern black metal and includes members of investigational death metal contortionists, Pyrrhon as well as instrumental rock collective Secret Chiefs 3 and New York death metal legion Malignancy. Goliath serves as the iniquitous follow-up to last year’s Abominamentvm full-length. Goliath will be released independently on October 2, 2013 via the official Imperial Triumphant Bandcamp Page.
