Avantgarde metal trio IMPERIAL TRIUMPHANT has dropped a new single via Century Media Records: a cover of METALLICA’s “Motorbreath”
The fourth in a series of covers, “Motorbreath” can be heard below.
Bassist Steve Blanco comments: “As a Metal band, only a fool would believe we aren’t influenced by Metallica. Many miles and hours traversing the Northern Hemisphere have we listened to the live & studio Metallica greatness from the 1980s and 1990s, and so have we decided to pay homage with a nostalgic cover from that earliest album recorded in upstate NY. Play it loud because Metal is the law.”
IMPERIAL TRIUMPHANT released their latest full-length, “Spirit of Ecstasy“, last year, with media hailing the group as “one of the most intriguing acts in metal” (Needle Drop). Disturbing, mind-bending, darkly powerful, “Spirit of Ecstasy” is uneasy listening for turbulent times.
