IMPERIAL TRIUMPHANT Recruits VOIVOD's Vocalist For New Single "Maximalist Scream"

The video is one gnarly death trip!

Rising once again from New York City's other Hell's Kitchen, Imperial Triumphant are back with a new single and insane video "Maximalist Scream" featuring Voivod vocalist Denis "Snake" Bélanger. This single comes with the news that the trio — guitarist/vocalist Zachary Ilya Ezrin, drummer Kenny Grohowski, and bassist Steve Blanco — will be releasing their fifth album, Spirit of Ecstasy, on July 22 via Century Media.

True to form, the video is mildly trauma-inducing and features some great camerawork and editing by Blanco. The black-and-white terror trip features hot cars and death valley girls, beading eyes and roadside dustups in the desert—plus an accordion! It's surrealist film noir at its finest, set to a punishing soundtrack courtesy of Imperial Triumphant.

Last fall, Imperial Triumphant released the off-the-charts live album, An Evening With Imperial Triumphant, which was recorded at the infamous club, The Slipper Room, in New York City. You can check out their performance of "Chernobyl Blues" here, which—as we're sure you have already guessed—kicks as much ass and is equally horrifying as "Maximalist Scream." Would you really expect anything less from these metro-metal experimentalists? We didn't think so.

Imperial Triumphant is bringing its Mother of Greed tour to Eastern Europe throughout May and June. You can catch those dates below. You can also find out more about Imperial Triumphant at their website.
