The Skinny: Goliath, the latest EP from New York City black metal titans, Imperial Triumphant, is currently streaming in full for all your deviant listening pleasures. Featuring two disconcerting tracks of obscurely hypnotic grimness, Goliath was forged in February of 2013 at Menegroth the Thousand Caves, and engineered, mixed and mastered by Colin Marston (Gorguts, Krallice, Nader Sadek, Atheist, Origin.

A musically and conceptually comprehensive creation, Goliath revolves itself around the biblical accounts of Sodom and Gomorrah – two cities, synonymous with sin, and ultimately left in ruins under the manifestation of God’s wrath on Judgment Day. Goliath serves as the soundtrack to the suffering – a fiery spate of perverted Deathspell Omegian riff sequences, angular pace shifts and feral vocal cascades encased in an atmosphere of true, unabridged torment.
