Imperial Triumphant released new EP (stream it), playing NYC with Weed Is Weed, Godstopper, and Yoshiko Ohara
NYC black metal psychopaths Imperial Triumphant have released their new EP, Goliath. The EP -- which features drummer Kenny Grohowski of Secret Chiefs 3 and the rhythm section of recent Relapse signees Pyrrhon) -- dabbles in both the obscure darkness of French black metal and the earthier approach of American death metal. It's also their second release in as many years; they put out their first full-length, Abominamentvm, last year. Goliath (cover art above) is available for free streaming and a $5 download on their Bandcamp; listen below.
Imperial Triumphant also have an upcoming Brooklyn show at the Acheron on 10/26. Joining them will be Maryland's Weed Is Weed, Toronto's underrated Godstopper, and Bloody Panda frontwoman Yoshiko Ohara, whose solo debut was recently written up in the New York Times. No presale tickets yet, but the doors will be $10.
