Mind Imperium – Nemesis

Mind Imperium have signed a licensing deal with Wormholedeath for their album Nemesis, which will be released on March 25th, 2022 worldwide. Hailing from France, Mind Imperium are a groove metal band in which powerful groove riffs blend with dark and melancholic tunes.

Loss begets emptiness.

An infinite void feeding on our hopes, leaving only broken dreams and a growing sadness in its wake.

As emptiness spreads like a disease in our mind, it reminds us that our existence is futile, that time will consume all things in the end, leaving an everlasting nothingness.

NemesisS portrays our unspeakable despair, but goes further. It is the unheard scream of our oceans stripped of all life by the hand of men, the bloodstained ashes of our forests whose life is burning away, the cub bereft of its mother’s warmth, the father without a son.

It is the incarnation of a declining world.

From this despair, we draw an endless strength and our desire for revenge.

We are Nemesis.

Mind Imperium is an ambient groove metal band from France, with Nogh (ex-Obnoxious, Death Of A Dryad) on lead vocals and guitars, Carol (ex-Necroblaspeme, Death Of A Dryad) on bass guitar and backing vocals and Fabien (PAICAN) on drums and backing vocals.

Mind Imperium story begins in late 2013, with a concept to create a groove metal band in which powerful groove riffs would blend with dark and melancholic ambiences. The Enemy Inside (Six Feet Under Cover) – Lockdown version,

The band releases its first EP – Amongst The Ruins – the same year, under the name My Imperium. Well-received by the public and the press, this first attempt allows them to play live extensively.

In 2016, after a few lineup changes and a small hiatus while Nogh and Carol focus on other musical projects and the development of the associative label Dark Faery Records, the band resumes its live activities and starts working on a full-length album. This project is inspired by artists from 19th century like Poe, Lovecraft or Chambers, but also from the works of Freud and Jung. Consequently, My Imperium becomes Mind Imperium,a name more fitting to the band’s unique universe.

In 2018, they release their first LP, Way To Carcosa , recorded at Vamacara Studio. It explores the diversity of emotions bred by the human mind when confronted with loss, whether it be symbolical or real. It also reflects MIND IMPERIUM sustained engagement in the environmental cause, relating the album theme to damages done by mankind to the living world. In partnership with Sea Shepard, the band releases a music video for their song A War Without End, to condemn the Grindadráp.

Right after their album’s release, Mind Imperium goes on tour in France and Belgium with their friends from Aeon Patronist, in support of both bands latest work.

The band continues touring until COVID hits, and spend the end of 2020 bringing Nemsis to life. Its recording takes place in spring 2021 at Tidal Wave Studioo.

About Ulf Backstrøm (7179 Articles)
Mitt hovedfokus er musikk som er basert på progressiv tenking. Jeg er på ingen måte ensporet innen musikksmak, i likhet med intensjonen bak prog. Sjangerbegrepet er egentlig temmelig uinteressant annet enn til å gi en pekepinn om hva slags musikk det er snakk om i en anmeldelse. Jeg søker god musikk for å utfordre meg som lytter. God musikk til å trigge mine musikalske smaksløker, og til å sette i gang mine refleksjoner. Da er sjansen stor for at jeg utvikler meg og lærer, noe som bør være drivstoff for et hvert menneske. Fordi det å lære og utvikle seg er noe som tilfører livet en nødvendig porsjon "krydder". Slikt krydderet finner man blant annet i musikk. Ikke overraskende mener jeg at progressiv musikk har den fineste "smaken". På den annen side kan musikk med eller uten progressive elementer være godt nok til hverdags. Til fest derimot holder bare rendyrket prog! Må jo også få med at jeg rimelig kritisk, og jeg mener at det lages mye prog som er i beste fall uinteressant, og faktisk mye som er pinlig dårlig. Heldigvis oppveies dette av ekstremt dyktige aktører som for eksempel: Flower Kings, Mostly Autumn og White Willow, for å nevne noen tilfeldig valgte.
