Imperial Triumphant is back wither another cover, this time tackling the progressive rock mastery of Rush. Much like Imperial Triumphant's covers of Dizzy Gillespie's "A Night In Tunesia" and Radiohead's "Paranoid Android" in the past, this Rush cover is way darker than the original.
"Ascension towards a higher place through twelve ancient steps of Jacob's Ladde," said Imperial Triumphant bassist Steve Blanco. "Rush's influence is undoubtedly far and wide in so much heavy music, and although we consider our music quite different from theirs, a strong thread holds it all together. As big fans of their giant body of work, we wanted to include a song in our cover series to pay tribute to this great unique band. We also wanted the cover image to reflect the legendary Permanent Waves artwork."
