camjr01 From around the release of this album through to Abyssal Gods, Imperial Triumphant is gradually shifting their sound. They're packing their Black Metal with more and more dissonant , Avant Garde Technical Death Metal (think of Portal vibes, but with Gorguts' playing style circa Obscura). However, they're not a Blackened Death Metal band yet, so this is actually highly dissonant, brutal Black Metal. And it's great. Favorite track: Hierophant.

Evan Carroll Some of the darkest black metal I've heard in a long time. Favorite track: Crushing the Idol.

Ippocalyptica To think that this is where it all really started - although Imperial Triumphant have come so far as most recently seen with their rule-changing Vile Luxury, all of the signs of their experimentation and avant-garde approaches were here for all to see. Despite being a (relatively) straightforward affair, this is still essential listening. Black metal is rarely this unsettling while still being so polished. Favorite track: S.P.Q.R.

Andy O))) Like an even more insane Deathspell Omega, it makes me wish all post-black metal was technical rather than shoegazey.

Максим Назарян A grand deconstruction of black metal. I would take this over Deathspell Omega most any day. Favorite track: Credo in Nihil.

Hierophant 02:11
Hark I am Perfection Born of higher caste and will Breathe my fire, children Triumph we will breed. A god built in my own image forever casting perdition Glory to my precious war!

Manifesto 03:47
More glorious than the victory of samothrace The roar of steel horses, a gesture of destruction There is no masterpiece, not birthed of violence We trample over the past with spurts of creation TO LIVE IN THE ABSOLUTE: REVOLTING PLEASURES Blessed is the beauty of speed All alone with black spirits inside Death, finally tamed, has freed us To unfathomable reservoirs of the absurd Our art is cruelty and nothing else Come my cavalries of crucified dreams Crushing onward, like iron lions Dance the winged cadence of their first songs and why rot? to waste in futile worship Standing on the world's summit We launch once again, our insolent challenge to the stars! Look at us! Drunk with ambition Our hearts nourished by fire, hatred and speed Behold the great splendor of the red sword as it strikes for the first time in our millennial darkness THE ONLY CURE FOR THE WORLD: WAR
3.
Join us, And drink from the darkness Embrace, This will of abandon. Face thee, With the eyes of vermillion. And burn these, roots of sefirot You dare. Walketh beside me. A patron of hypocrisy and gall Parasitic whores grovel at the plaster saint. Fervent and ready to receive the blessing of the seed Enter the city of woes Conjure this malediction O’ heaven is ours Cleansing godless conflagration Crushing The Idol! In chains your were born. In chains you will die. From whips you were born From whips you will die.

The godmachine spurts blood A life: a gear, a cog grinding minds to sow its lies And feed them to its flock Cyclic regurgitations of the inbred absolute Construct a rigid gearwork And mechanize indoctrination DEVS - EST - MACHINA Rusting behemoth Souls writhe in torture Singing hymns of ecstasy DEVS - EST - MACHINA Slave to its own rhythm Mastered its creator Society of helotry The cross, bathed in blood, begins to rust Through the hearts of zealots Lust for a truth transcendent Rots in its creator Gears, caked with scum, shall collapse Under will to the truth Cognizant cogs grind to halt of the Dooming mechanism

S.P.Q.R 03:39
Born above heaven In a kingdom of opulence I create GOD! Lo! Behold my offspring. Tamed and tortured so Nothing is flawed. We without faith see Grotesqueries divine. Praised, exalted Antigod. Drink your blood! Empire. Sculpt my vision. Build it higher! Nothing is ever enough. Breathing in the cold Winds of hel. A new Rome For us to burn Pitiful worms Your flesh with breed Glorious spears My serpents breathe Onward, my chariots Bring me the eyes of Cerberus Hideous creation, Bring me ruin.

Bellvm 03:12
Landscapes in the sky Transfigured grey Within this shroud of death Boils their flesh, Given morbid, unremitting sentience There is no beauty in these hills Totality of ruin And fateless winds from The porous earth Disperse the herald's mist Fused in apokalypsis To live here is to die To die a gift By Mekanik Sovereign
