This breathtaking two-panel artwork from Adam Burke definitely deserves to be a part of every day life. Here’s an option to get yourself a fine coffee mug with that full design.
After releasing a standout album in ‘Cipher’, sci-fi black metal band Imperialist return with a brand new full length of soaring ambition and mesmerizing music. ‘Zenith’ sees the band delving fully into the sci-fi realm, stringing together longer, well-thought and fleshed out songs narrating the infinite appeal of the ever-mystifying cosmos. Having showcased a knack for infusing sharp thrash riffing and hooks into the bleak Dissection-esque black metal palette, Imperialist manage to take it to the next level on this album, aspiring for better scope and clutching on to the emotive stains lest it begins to get too mechanical straying far away from the earthly confines. Meticulously structured and carefully paced, the album pulsates like a luminous star, unleashing a plethora of unforgettable riffs with every song. Imperialist have never sounded more confident and mature, as they straddle calculated, sharp black metal music and the capacity to exude human sentience, taking forward the style into uncharted realms without losing the essence. They’ve crafted a masterpiece with ‘Zenith’, crossing thresholds of what this particular style is expected to contain.
