 LISTEN TO THE ENTIRE ALBUM ON BANDCAMP:  http://www.imperious.bandcamp.com 

In 2009 IMPERIOUS was given birth by  main composer Sertorius, who started the band originally as a solo  project, in which he wanted to fullfill his intention to create music  out of historical and/or poetic sources. After he finished the  songwriting for the first album, he searched for musicians to record it.  During that process he decided to look for band members, not only for  helping hands, because he wanted to bring his music to the stage also.

In Kalmesh (git), Iluaar (Git) and  Linchre (Drums), who had known themselves through other projects  already, he found a well matching team. Sertorius took the bass and  vocal position.

Together they shaped the songs by bringing in individual influences, rearranged and finally recorded them.
 The first album “Varus” was released in April 2009 through Twilight Distribution worldwide.

Underground club shows, gigs at  established festivals like “Ragnarök Festival” and “Walpurgis Metal  Days”, motivating album and live reviews followed, but IMPERIOUS  couldn’t manage it to get any further than that due to reasons of time  and individual personal circumstances. Furthermore their label and  distributor had to give up their business, so the band stood there  empty-handed. They did some regional shows yet, however they couldn’t tie in with the first successes.

But that was not the end. Perhaps IMPERIOUS was wounded, but not dead.

After they removed all barriers and  problems which stood in their way, IMPERIOUS started with regained  powers and passion a challenging new project: Translating Homer’s  Odyssey into a musical concept.

3 years of songwriting, recording and  also line-up changes (drummer Linchre left the band due to creative  reasons) went by, in which the band reached a new level of motivation, creativity and effectivity.

Forged by Markus Stock (The Vision  Bleak, Empyrium) at the famous Klangschmiede Studio E, IMPERIOUS‘ new  masterpiece now comprises 2 full-length albums telling the story of Odysseus and his epic journey from the conquered shores of Ilion to his  beloveth homeland Ithaca. The first part of their musical creation called “Tales Of Woe – The  Journey Of Odysseus – Part I: From Ilion To Hades” was released in May  2015. The second part “Tales Of Woe – The Journey Of Odysseus – Part II:  From Hades To Ithaca” followed 1 year later.

In 2017 IMPERIOUS signed with the german  cult label MASSACRE RECORDS & SOULFOOD DISTRIBUTION to release the  „Tales Of Woe“ worldwide.

With the new album "Godless Divinity", which contains two 20-minute-tracks, the band again opens another chapter and proves their creativity at another progressive level of songwriting and arrangement. After the digital release of it again on their own, they now enter new ways for producing physical versions of the new album independently...

Take a listen:

We are without a label again and so we have to release our music on our own.
 Now since the new album is out as a digital version via Bandcamp (take a listen: youtube video)  a lot of you asked for a physical version to have something to collect, read, open and hold in hands. We totally understand that as we think in the same way.
  But without a label a CD/LP production is very expensive and a financial risk for an underground band like us as we never know if we are able to sell enough to reach the break-even-point. That's why we decided to enter a new way and started this Kickstarter campaign, because we think that this is the safest way for us as well as for you:

a) If we together reach the goal you get an unique item and we have no financal losses.

b) If we together do not reach the goal, nobody of us has any harm. 

Easy as that. 

So we would feel very pleased if you would support us with your participation in that campaign. Let us prove together that the metal underground scene is able to release music and high quality sound carriers independently.

 (PreNote: There is no size option available for t-shirts. If the campaign succeeds, we will ask you for your size personally via email. You will also get a code for the album download then.)

 We will name every supporter who orders the CD/Vinyl or a bundle in the booklet (if you want to)!!! We will ask you by email if the campaign was successful.
