Imperial Triumphant to play Roadburn Festival

New York avant-metallers Imperial Triumphant announce their 2019 appearance at the highly coveted Roadburn Festival in Tilburg, Netherlands! The trio will deliver their brand of decay, opulence, and decadence to the festival on Sunday, April 14th with a full exploration into their critically acclaimed Gilead Media/Throatruiner Records release, “Vile Luxury”.

Frontman Zachary Ilya Ezrin shares, “Imperial Triumphant is ecstatic to be invited to Roadburn’s 2019 festival. We will bring the high society city ritual to Holland; exclusively performing tracks from our critically acclaimed summer release Vile Luxury. It is an honour.”

Tickets to Roadburn Festival are available Thursday, October 4th: https://roadburn.com/

New York’s nebulous, avant-garde metal outfit Imperial Triumphant redefine sonic darkness on their ambitious new album, “Vile Luxury”. A turbulent, frenetic take on experimental noise and progressive black metal, Imperial Triumphant embody the most austere side of the New York underground. Chaos, menagerie, and the perils of the city clash with its reputation for majesty and extravagance. The band aim to portray the juxtaposition between high society and urban decay.

“Our city is like the corpse of a giant.” The band explains. “What was once so bright, grand and spectacular, is now filled with greedy maggots writhing towards their share of ‘success’. We don’t support it nor are we against. We only play the sounds of the New York City as we hear them.”

“Vile Luxury” combines the various musical elements that follow well within the tradition of music in New York, a monolith of the Western world, of constant experimentation and appropriation of all things that enter it, never leaving the same as it came.
