Imperium Dekadenz announce new tour dates and have a surprise for their gaming fans


Imperium Dekadenz hail from Germany’s Black Forest, where the Roman Empire clashed, conquered, and finally fell against first Celtic and later Germanic tribes. Its impenetrable, murky, and mysterious fog ridden woods and harsh landscapes have given rise to a dark romanticism that even imbues the works of this band with deep roots in Nordic black metal.

Imperium Dekadenz have cultivated and advanced an atmospheric style of their own with their highly acclaimed third and fourth studio albums ‘Procella Vadens‘ (2010) and ‘Meadows of Nostalgia‘ (2013). The dark chasms and steep rises of the Black Forest mountains are echoed within the German duos’ majestic melodies, which are contrasted by interludes of often fragile acoustic parts.

Imperium Dekadenz have announced a string of live dates for the coming summer. Following two shows with German thrash Xternity in April, the black metal romantics are scheduled to perform several festival and headlining shows.

27 Apr 18 Tilburg (NL) Little Devil (+Xternity)
28 Apr 18 Oberhausen (DE) Helvete (+Xternity)
02 Jun 18 Kirchdorf (DE) Bavarian Battle Open Air (exact date tba)

On further news, critically acclaimed open world RPG, Kingdom Come: Deliverance has picked the title track of Imperium Dekadenz‘ second album, ‘Dämmerung der Szenarien‘ (2007) for its soundtrack under the new name “Thru the Fog of Time“.

Imperium Dekadenz drummer Vespasian comments: “We are extremely stoked to be part of the soundtrack of Kingdom Come: Deliverance, which was developed by Warhorse Studios. It has given us a chance to have our music heard around the globe and we are thankful for all the kind praise that we have received for ‘Thru the Fog of Time‘ that was written and recorded in 2007. Exciting times.”
