Imperial Triumphant talk Art Deco-inspired death metal, working with Kenny G on new LP, & more

Since releasing its debut record in 2012, Imperial Triumphant -- Zachary Ilya Ezrin (vocals, guitars), Steve Blanco (bass, vocals, keys, theremin) and Kenny Grohowski (drums) -- had a mission in going deep into the heart of New York City, as elegantly described on their Bandcamp, "From top floor luxury to the rotten underground." The idea of the top floor luxury only enhanced after the release of Alphaville (get it on white vinyl), their debut with Century Media. The record -- produced by Trey Spruance (Mr. Bungle) and recorded by Colin Marston at Menegroth Studios -- is grand in scope, with their largest sounding production yet. The reception for the record amongst the metal community was equal in size, and took the Art Deco-inspired trio from a local favorite to engraving their place in the metal canon. With their second release on Century Media, Spirit of Ecstasy (out today, 7/22 -- grab it on vinyl), Imperial Triumphant are stripping their sound back just enough to focus on the finer details that go into their music.
