The Black

Label: DIY (Rough Trade)
Format: (LP)

Release: 12.04.2024

This is the closest we’ve ever been to a self titled release, as this record speaks volumes about what Imminence is as a band. Drawing influences across our discography mixed with our Scandinavian roots, you can hear elements from our entire history, yet fueled by an insatiable hungerEddie Berg

I actually really liked the 2019 work “Turn The Light On”, by the ambitious and creative metalcore institution IMMINENCE. But due to the mass rather than class that often reigns in the sector, the last album probably slipped through my fingers. Now the guys from Malmö have broken away from their last label and from a contract in general and are offering their latest work “The Black” in the good old DIY style.

But don’t worry, the piece is produced at the highest level and fans of the troupe definitely won’t miss anything. With their (post-)metalcore, which is characterized by a roller coaster ride of emotions, the Swedes quickly hit where they aimed. Between anger, sadness, heartbreak and a little dash of hope, IMMINENCE manage to captivate their listeners with their twelve new, intense and varied compositions.

In addition to fat riffs between metalcore, metal and rock, tight beats, brutal freakouts and violent and yet always soulful shouts from Eddie Berg, who also skilfully picks up the violin again and again, there is also enough for the heart. Above all, of course, Eddie’s intense string interludes, which create a dense atmosphere, but also sometimes give you goosebumps. There are also his haunting, clean vocals, polyphonic parts and under-the-skin leads from Harald Barret and Alex Arnoldsson, who do a great job here. It’s no surprise that the album revolves around the topic of depression and mental health, without making any compromises or holding anything back. „It’s angrier, more desperate and unhinged, soaking in fear and darkness“as the band themselves emphasize.

Nothing here seems forced, forced or affected. It doesn’t matter whether it gets bombastic, like in the actually ultra-brutal and fast death metal blast “Come What May”, which is accompanied by spherical synths, the ambient intro song “Come Hell Or Hight Water” or the final string outro “Le Noir” – and everything in between anyway – IMMINENCE know what they are doing and touch where it hurts. A wild ride of emotions that is worth it!
