Atmospheric Black Metal Duo IMPERIUM DEKADENZ announce New Album, Into Sorrow Evermore!
Lords of black metal, IMPERIUM DEKADENZ, raise darkness from the depths of southwestern Germany’s Black Forest once more and proudly announce their new album, Into Sorrow Evermore, to be unleashed on January 20, 2023 via Napalm Records. Immersed in the void, they approach themes of depression, death and desperation, luring the listener into their sorrowful reality of existence. True to the beginnings of the genre, IMPERIUM DEKADENZ stick to their roots and leave their own haunting mark on the genre, claiming their rightful place in the upper echelons of black metal.
Today the first single “Memories … a Raging River” is released along with an official video. The song acts as a brutal and atmospheric exclamation mark showcasing IMPERIUM DEKADENZ’s unique style. Inspired by the Norwegian second-wave black metal bands of the 90s, the band has developed their own ambient sound with a strong emphasis on melodic structuring in their songwriting that immerses their compositions into grim and desolate soundscapes.
IMPERIUM DEKADENZ on “Memories … a Raging River”:
“A look at a time that left no traces and was irretrievably swept away as if by a raging stream. Brachial guitar lines meet melancholic, filigree melodies, shaken by poignant, touching cries from an endless abyss. Resolutely we step into an approaching darkness.”
