Blasting out of Bristol, United Kingdom all geared up with destructive fast-paced death metal, IMPERIUM is a band that showcases very strong musicianship along with clever song-writing setting them apart from a flooded mass of bands losing themselves in swamps of meaningless brutality. Vowing to always push every aspect of their music forward IMPERIUM is all about constant progression and innovati
IMPERIUM was formed in late 2010 by six strings duo Robert Purnell, also guitarist in the British death metal sensation TRIGGER THE BLOODSHED (Candlelight Records) and guitar virtuoso Mike Alexander. After demoing most of "Sacramentum" including the punishing anthems "Eternal Imperium" and "Final Sacramentum", the harvest for the best of the best musicians began. The search for perfect fits proved itself to be a hard task but IMPERIUM was first known as it is today in April 2011 with the addition on vocals of Steve Garner, also vocalist in the French extreme metal heavyweights THE BRIDAL PROCESSION (Siege Of Amida Records) adding the final touch to the astonishing brutality of IMPERIUM.
IMPERIUM's debut full-length record "Sacramentum" was self-produced by the band in Bristol and mixed, mastered by Chuck Creese. "Sacramentum" is a modern piece of jaw-dropping brutality and punishing heaviness setting the record straight on what IMPERIUM is all about.
2012 will be the start of a new chapter for the empire.
