Internal Bleeding Announces New EP "Imperium"

Internal Bleeding is proud to announce the band has completed a 5-song EP, which is a teaser and lead up to forthcoming full-length “Imperium.” The following press release was also issued:

"The New York based band has been slugging it out in the industry since 1991 and have been credited with the invention of “slam-metal” as well as being one of the pioneers of the New York death metal scene.

"'Imperium' is the culmination of 20+ years of working, writing, playing and refining the Internal Bleeding sound. The definition of Imperium is 'supreme power or absolute domination,' and with these songs Internal Bleeding is set to dominate the scene once again. The much-anticipated EP has already caught the attention of many industry heavy hitters and the band will soon have label support behind them once again in support of their full-length release."

“By far, this is the best IB release to date,” states guitarist Chris Pervelis, “From a musical standpoint, it has all the hallmarks of the classic Internal Bleeding sound—heaviness, groove and catchiness–but we pushed ourselves and expanded it into some new directions, without violating the integrity of our music. From a production standpoint, Joe Cincotta at Full force nailed it. He finally got the sound we've been looking for—clear, precise and above all heavy. Having Matt Kourie do the mastering also helped a great deal, as he eschews the overly compressed, thin sound that is so prevalent today for a thicker sound that the listener will feel as well as hear.”

Says vocalist Keith DeVito, “I finally found a home in a band where I can really push my vocal and lyrical approach to the limit; this is the best material we’ve ever done and I cannot wait to get out there and play it live.”

The track listing is:

1. Castigo Corpus Meum
2. The Pageantry of Savagery
3. The Visitant
4. Placate The Ancients
5. In The Absence of Soul

In May 2013, Internal Bleeding will be heading out on a Northeast mini tour titled the "Reign of Supremacy" tour.
