Imperial Triumphant (US) + Morild

06 sep 2021 kl. 20:00 - 22:00

Døre kl 19 / koncert kl 20

Black metal, avantgarde og jazz mødes i en skøn forening når New York-bandet Imperial Triumphant indtager ALICE til september med deres nyeste udspil “Alphaville” (Century Media, 2020). Danske Morild åbner aftenen.

Imperial Triumphant

Imperial Triumphant skaber avantgarde-metal som få andre. I et lydligt menageri af skidt, elendighed og urbant forfald overfor storhed, svimlende højder og overklasseluksus, legemliggør bandet lyden af hjembyen New York, som de hører den. Med black metal som ramme omfavner de alle mulige og umulige genrer til et spændende og vidtfavnende musikalsk kaos. 

Det maskerede black metal-band så dagens lys i New York tilbage i 2005 med forsanger og guitarist Zachary Ilya Ezrin i spidsen, og har siden haft skiftende besætning og udgivet fire studiealbums. På deres nyeste udspil “Alphaville” (Century Media, 2020), har bandet efter eget udsagn skruet endnu mere op for det jazzede og avantgardistiske. Resultatet er en dystopisk blanding af skæve jazz-riffs, eksperimenterende trommer, reallyde, samples fra loungeklaver og gamle 78’er-plader og Ezrins dybe growl. Med referencer til både prog, rock og sågar klassisk dødsmetal i møder med de mange aparte eksperimenter, er albummet blevet modtaget af metalfans som både genialt og bizart. 

Men en ting er sikkert. Der venter en unik oplevelse når de gæster ALICE til september. 

Sagt om Alphaville:

“This exquisite record, which includes influence-highlighting covers of Voivod and The Residents, is rife with atypical ideas and moments of groundbreaking extremity, making Alphaville not only the finest, most daring and accomplished Imperial Triumphant LP to date” - Louder Sound

“Imperial Triumphant may have very well become one of my absolute favorite Avant-garde bands of the past ten years.” - Metal Storm

Morild

Det atmosfæriske black metal-band Morild blev dannet i København i 2016. Allerede året efter udgav de deres første EP ‘VI’ og i februar 2019 deres debutalbum på Indisciplinarian. Udgivelsen blev markeret med en udsolgt koncert på Den Blå Planet, og bandet har siden skabt sig et ry som et stærkt liveband med deres intense og visuelt smukke koncerter. Denne aften spiller de support for Imperial Triumphant.

In English

Imperial Triumphant 

Born in the metropolis: Imperial Triumphant embodies the sounds of New York. The chaos, the menagerie, the perils and majesty of the greatest city on earth. They portray this great juxtaposition between high society luxury coexisting with absolute filth and urban decay. Imperial Triumphant’s city is like the corpse of a giant. What was once so bright, grand and spectacular, is now filled with greedy maggots writhing towards their share of 'success'. They don't support it nor are they against, as they say. They only play the sounds of the New York City as we hear them. When they play at ALICE they will bring their latest album “Alphaville” (2020).

Morild

The Copenhagen based atmospheric black metal combo MORILD was formed in Copenhagen in January 2016. In september 2017, the band stirred the homely waters with the debut EP ‘VI’, and on February 1st 2019, MORILD released their debut album through Indisciplinarian. The album was marked by a stunning and sold out performance at the national Danish aquarium “Den Blå Planet” (“The Blue Planet”). The concert was filmed and released in three parts via Cvlt Nation. From the beginning, MORILD has built its reputation as a strong live band with their intense and visually splendid concerts.




Opened on the 1st of February 2018, ALICE is Copenhagen’s powerhouse for adventurous music. ALICE is presenting a bold and high quality program of global roots, jazz/improv, electronic music, sonic experiments and much more, shedding light on musical roots and legendary artists as well as exciting new breakthroughs from all over the world.
