Additional info
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.

'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.

Being inclined toward a considerable degree of artistic boldness and defiance of prevailing standards, it can often be difficult to say what really qualifies as "Avant-garde music" and what doesn't with any sort of authority. Whatever dietary supplements Imperial Triumphant are making use of in the morning, however, I think they're definitely hitting the mark for it.

Two songs streaming now. Probably a bit too much of Krallice sounding for me.

This is some seriously harsh sounding shit. A lot of wall of noise mixed with black metal jazz. I love it.

"...Imperial Triumphant play fiery blackened-death metal, a la Deathspell Omega."
wtf deathspell omega is not a blackend death metal band and IT does not sound like them that much.

I find this record a bit tamed for my expectations. However, I do approve them collapsing their sound to drone-like textures in Chernobyl Blues and The Filth. also, guest vocals from Bloody Panda's are spot on.

Just started checking these guys out, but this is some pretty dense stuff. Extremely well layered and deconstructive

Ganga was sunken, and the limp leaves waited for rain
While the black clouds gathered far distant, over Himavant
The jungle crouched, humped in silence
Then spoke the thunder
