Out of the murky depths of the Black Forest rise IMPERIUM DEKADENZ. The dark chasms of these steep mountains have witnessed the rise and fall of empires in bloody battles and glorious history. Celts, Romans and Germanic tribes have lived and perished in these fog ridden, harsh and yet exquisite landscapes. The ancient past and lost peoples left lingering feelings of longing and a deep melancholy, which none have ever captured more intensively than native IMPERIUM DEKADENZ on their fourth full-length "Meadows of Nostalgia".Lyrically IMPERIUM DEKADENZ clad metaphors of human transience, ashes, dust and shadows into an antique attire with a penchant for the Roman Empire, while declining to deal with stereotypical political, religious or misanthropic genre themes. The same obvious intelligence is applied in their complex and multi-layered compositions, which combined with emotional passion and intuitive skill turns "Meadows of Nostalgia" into a dark masterpiece. Delve deep into the secrets and detailed riches of IMPERIUM DEKADENZ. Glory to the new German emperors!
Imperium is a mexican metal band formed in 2008. Being inspired by epic, orchestral,theatrical music and many metal bands such as the Scandinavian metal bands,they decided to create their own music.“Victory’s Reign”, being their first EP released, was the key to create many opportunities such as their first formal gig called “Winter Metal Fest”(2008) at the Circo Volador Bar.Good reviews were given and several months after,they decided to enter the mexican “Wacken Metal Battle”, which was another good chance to show what Imperium is made of, also it would take them to support Amon Amarth’s show at Circo Volador. In 2010 they recorded their first album entitled “Winter’s Dawn” and goes on sale in August 2011. In may 2012 they recorded “Winter’s Dawn” video clip being at the moment in the process of edition.
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. IMPERIUM's debut full-length record "Sacramentum" comes out 20/11/12 and 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.
Krenek’s Karl V is the kind of opera that can be appreciated on several different levels. (…) Remarkably, it’s the earliest large-scale opera to use the 12-note system, though Krenek triumphantly refutes the notion that adherence to this technique inhibits creativity and emotional power. The composer’s widow has claimed that this performance, recorded in connection with the Beethoven Festival in Bonn last year, is by far the finest she has ever heard. With wonderful singing from David Pittman-Jennings as Karl and superb commitment from conductor Marc Soustrot and his fine orchestra, there is little reason to disagree with this verdict.
