Event Details

IMMOLATION is a name long synonymous with the extreme music scene, delivering some of the most unique and creatively dark death metal the underground has witnessed over the past 32 years. Their latest release, “Atonement”(Nuclear Blast), proved that this is one band that doesnot look back, continuing to push the limits and remaining a vibrant force for the future of a genre they helped define.

Since the release of their debut album “Dawn of Possession” (Roadrunner) in 1991, IMMOLATION has been paving their way down an ever-evolvingpath of uncompromising musical devastation! Never a band to rely on their previous efforts, IMMOLATION has continued album after album to refine and hone their most identifiable style and sound, creating some of the darkest and most adventurous death metal the scene has ever heard. With such classic albums as “Here In After”, “Failures for Gods”, and “Close To A World Below” (Metal Blade), as well as their more recent critically acclaimed releases, “Unholy Cult”, “Harnessing Ruin”, “Hope and Horror”(ep)and “Shadows In The Light” (Listenable/Century Media), the band has developed into one of the premier extreme acts of our time.

2010 saw the next step in IMMOLATION’s evolution with its Nuclear Blastdebut, “Majesty and Decay”. With the release of “Majesty and Decay” IMMOLATION not only surpassed their previous releases musically, but had started a new chapter in their career with the added mix/mastering talents of Zack Ohren (Castle Ultimate Studios). Together with long-time producer Paul Orofino (Millbrook Sound Studios), the combination proved to be the key to some of the most powerful sounding IMMOLATION material to date! Not only had IMMOLATION taken their abilities so much further, with some of the most disheartening musical landscapes the band has ever created, but the sound and production were taken to new levels as well, unleashing all the unrelenting force the band truly offers! With their most solid production recordedat that time, accented by the remarkably stunning artwork of then newly recruited Par Olofsson, “Majesty and Decay” became an instant classic!

Not too long after, 2011 saw the release of IMMOLATION’s second ever ep entitled “Providence” (Scion A/V). This five-song ep of all new original tracks was released by Scion A/V (Toyota) as an online free download, available for fans worldwide. Free cds and vinyl were only available during the band’s U.S tour for this ep, making it an even more sought-afterrelease! Overall “Providence” proved again that the combination of Orofino & Ohren, with Par Olofsson once again at the artistic helm, was a team to keep! Production and artwork were once again some of the bands best. “Providence” was not just an ep, it proved to be a five-song mammoth that found itself on top release lists for that year! With IMMOLATION creating an interesting collection of avant-garde, yet extremely catchy songs” Providence” set the tone for where the band was heading, and a taste of what to expect from their next full length lp.

With 2013’s “Kingdom of Conspiracy”,the band took things to another level of intensity. With this, the band’s second full lengthrecord for Nuclear Blast, it was clear that IMMOLATION had found themselves at their most refined and strongest point to date. “Kingdom of Conspiracy” was without a doubt their most complete, menacing, and grimmest culmination of musical madness the band hadever released! While conceptually taking a dim and bitter look at the realities of our world today, adding an Orwellian twist to its not so distant future, all our fears are soon realized in this soundtrack that mirrors our world more than we choose to accept. And with speeds and intensity beyond anything the band had recorded before, “Kingdom of Conspiracy” became an instant classic to both their fans and peers.

February 2017 saw the release of “Atonement” ,the band’s 10th full length album, their third forNuclear Blast Records. “Atonement” was truly a defining moment for IMMOLATION, having some of the most mournful orchestrations the band have dared to delve into, redefining themselves once again and coming out holding the torch high! An unrelenting collection of catchy, intense and darkly imaginative tracks, each song on “Atonement” is a testament to the pure style and creativity that makes IMMOLATION who they are. Each song on this record is uniquelydifferent from the next, with each one incorporating so many of the classic IMMOLATION elements that put this band in a league of their own when it comes to extreme metal. “Atonement” is an album that takes the listener on a musical journey that touches on all the extremes; the slow and heavy, the fast and savage and the dark and haunting. “Atonement” is hands down the band’s best produced release in their 32-yearhistory. Recorded once again at Millbrook Sound Studios with producer Paul Orofino, mixed and mastered by Zack Ohren (Castle Ultimate Studios), and once again featuring the amazing cover artwork of Par Olofsson along with additional artwork by the very talented Zbigniew Bielak, “Atonement”truly had extreme music fans foaming at the mouth! With pinpoint accuracy and violent melodic prowess, and lyrical content touching on the dark realities of humanity and the world we have created, the epic feel and dominating power delivered by “Atonement” was able to please fans of death/black metal and all extreme music!

On the success of “Atonement”IMMOLATION conquered the world stages from 2017-2019, touring relentlessly through almost every continent on the planet! With extensive run staking the band throughout North America, Europe, Central America, Asia, Australia, South America and Japan, the band performed hundreds of dates in theatres, clubs and open-air festivals worldwide…bringing their unbridled live energy to thousands of metal fans!

Now, while the world continues to waitfor a return to normalcy, IMMOLATION prepares for their new album. And be certain, a dark and powerful album it will be! For once again, as proven before, the seasoned artists of darkness plan to go beyond all expectations, both musically and in their future live shows, to bring their listeners senses burning down to the ground in a pile of ash…thanking IMMOLATION for every minute it took them to get there!
