Gothenburg, Sweden –Decibel Magazine is hosting the exclusive premiere of the new track, Krokodil (Chorus), off New York’s avant-garde black metal outfit IMPERIAL TRIUMPHANT’s vinyl version of Inceste (out 3/23). Ilya Ezrin—Vocals, Guitars, and Orchestration—comments on the B-Side: 

"In 2013, we played a local show and the opener was Yoshiko Ohara. She blew me away so after the performance I asked if she would be interested in collaborating. Krokodil was the first track we worked on and really we just sent her the music and let her do whatever she liked, which is the beauty of working with like minded musicians."

"Baroque, haunting and mentally unwell, pick this up and then everything else they’ve done." Decibel Magazine

“In a sea of bands that are trying to be both dangerous and unorthodox, Imperial Triumphant are one of the few that actually succeed.” Metal Sucks

“With Inceste, Imperial Triumphant have fully given in to their fascination with the avant-garde, while staying true to their roots as a technical black/death metal band.” CVLT Nation

“At times downright terrifying (which is no easy feat these days) and other points equally sadistic, Imperial Triumphant bring you into a gripping vision of madness in a way that no other band is really attempting.” 9/10 Dead Rhetoric

“I’m impressed with how many twists they navigate while never sacrificing the mood for thrill.” Teeth of the Devine

"A mad, confusing cacophony of bizarre riffs, weird time changes, and wonderfully prominent yet strange bass lines, all the while enhanced by a certain air of authenticity."
