On May 3rd, New York’s Imperial Triumphant will release a new version of 2018’s Vile Luxury – remixed & remastered by longtime contributor Colin Marston (Krallice, Gorguts). Upon its initial release, the album set a new standard for the possibilities of extreme music; now, the trio returns with a fresh approach to this seminal record—often considered Imperial Triumphant at their most accessible—allowing stygian dimensions and monolithic intents to seep through. For a first preview, the redubbed video for “Swarming Opulence (Redux 1924)” can be seen now here:

Regarding “Swarming Opulence (Redux 1924)”, Steve Blanco (bass) comments: “The future, like everything else, is not quite what it used to be. From 2018 to 1924, timeless vision extends. Behold the single which truly pushed Imperial Triumphant into the spotlight of the new roaring twenties. Swarming Opulence: that which never stops consuming.”

Pre-order the remixed & remastered version of Vile Luxury now here: – where the record is available in the following formats:
–CD Digipak
–Hudson River Blue 2LP
–Chernobyl Radiation Neon Green 2LP

To coincide with the release of Vile Luxury, Imperial Triumphant have collaborated with the avant-garde minds of House of Masks (AJ Good, Slipknot), Paleface & Company, Joshua Everetts, and the visionary talents of Trash Bag Ghosts to create the Masque of Mercury. The masks feature a brand new and reimagined design. Each highly collectible, an extremely limited hand numbered box displays the enigmatic and clandestine opulence of the collaborative and limitless talents between Imperial Triumphant and House of Masks.

Since 2018, Imperial Triumphant has taken their signature sound, equally rooted in eclectic black metal, the most claustrophobic notions of free jazz, and the concept of urban cityscapes as canyons of horror, and cemented their status with tours alongside the likes of Behemoth, Zeal & Ardor, and Voivod. Most recently, the three-piece digitally released a series of covers in 2023 to critical acclaim – all of which can be heard below:

–“Paranoid Android” (Radiohead cover):
–“A Night In Tunisia” (Dizzy Gillespie cover):
–“Jacob’s Ladder” (Rush cover):
–“Motorbreath” (Metallica cover):
–“Nefertiti” (Wayne Shorter cover):
