Imperishable is an extreme metal side project created by Brian Kingsland (Nile/Enthean), who writes the majority of the music, plays guitar and takes up vocal duty, with contributions from bassist Alex Rush (Enthean), and the pummeling drums of Tommy Harrison. The band combines grinding black metal riffs and death metal grooves. Creating a dark, yet, catchy soundscape. Minimal wankery, maximum riffage
From South Carolina, the band was started as an outlet for Kingsland’s musical ideas that didn’t necessarily fit with his other bands; the predominant influences are the darkness of black metal and the power of death metal; namely, Emperor, Angelcorpse, and Morbid Angel.
The writing process for the band varies between the songs, Kingsland is always writing, tracking ideas with a growing repertoire waiting to be refined. With accommodations for musical personalities and influences, the song takes shape, with Kingsland’s lyrics adding the final touch. Lyrical themes are generally up to listener interpretation, but largely positive, confident and have some real-life application thrown in.
Conceived in late-2019, Imperishable will be releasing a four-track EP Revelation In Purity which is produced and mixed by Kingsland. Mastered by Jamie King. There will likely be more music coming from the band in the future.
«Imperishable’s new single Exclusion Continuum isn’t just tech death in the vein of Nile. This new track is probably as far from that as it gets. Imperishable is designed using a more raw death metal tone, with a little bit of a blackened tinge to the riffs. It’s fast, it hits hard, but if you’re looking for tech-death, you’re quite far from where you need to be». – Metal Injection
When asked what fans can expect from them, Kingsland responds:
«If you enjoy lots of technical wanky guitar, overly polished production; you won’t enjoy this record. This album will be more old school and raw. Topics lean heavily on self-confidence and strength in one’s beliefs. We shred, but only when it fits the composition. This band is all about the riffs and songwriting».
