IMPERIAL is a band like no other : born in 1992 and a part of Osmose Productions? roster at the end of the ninetines, the French band formed by Skrow (bass/vocals) and Qojau (guitars) cultivates its difference : their lyrics are mostly sung in French and are full of black humour, the drums are very often electronic, the band didn?t record in a trendy 48-tracks recording facility and they don?t even want to create a buzz on the Internet. However, IMPERIAL excels in creating a bleak, dirty and post-apocalyptic atmosphere with its punk-fueled black/thrash metal. The lyrics, dealing with the darkest aspects of human nature, help create in the mind of the listener a gloomy and cyberpunk aural landscape that reeks of perdition, dirt, faeces, death and madness. IMPERIAL is not a band to deny itself. On 'Chaos' there is no female singer, no keyboards and no useless guitar shreds : efficiency is the word ! With riffs that could have been written by DESTRUCTION or KREATOR back in 1985 and raspy vocals, IMPERIAL carves its way into the listener?s ears with a rusted, shit-stained switchblade knife.
