Imperial Triumphant are a band from New York that has been featured before in this zine with a musical style i would describe on this recording as being modern and avant garde form black metal and this is a review of their 2013 ep "Goliath" which was released by Vatican Records.
"Sodom' begins with some sound effects and orchestra sounds which leads to some deep growls and then some guitar leads, bass guitars and drums start kicking in along with some black metal screams which then starts adding in heavier guitar riffs which also get fast in certain sections of the song and after awhile more guitar leads are being utilized as well as some avant garde elements.
"Gomorrah" begins with some avant garde black metal guitar riffs, powerful bass guitars and drums and then goes into a more fast direction and adds in some blast beats and blackened metal vocals and then going for a more mid paced approach but returning to fast and brutal in certain parts of the song as well as adding in more avant garde elements and the song closes with some orchestra elements.
Song lyrics cover the old testament story of Sodom and Gomorrah, while the production has a very strong, powerful, heavy and dark sound where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording with both of the songs being long and epic in length.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Imperial Triumphant and if you are a fan of avant garde black metal, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Sodom". RECOMMENDED BUY.
