INTERNAL BLEEDING Prepare To Release ‘Imperium’; Carnival Of Death Tour Dates Announced‏


Iconic New York death metal tyrants, INTERNAL BLEEDING, will release their long-anticipated new full-length, Imperium, to the masses this Fall via Unique Leader Records. Produced by the band alongside Joe Cincotta at Full Force Studio (Suffocation, Dehumanized, Mortal Decay) in Ronkonkoma, New York and engineered by Cincotta and Derek Boyer, Imperium boasts the menacing artwork of Mircea Gabriel Eftemie (Carcass, Cryptopsy, The Haunted, Nevermore et al) and serves as the band’s most sonically debilitating and plainly brutal manifestation of their winding career.

Although Imperium is a new album, it is, in many ways, deeply rooted in the band’s past — a culmination of strong emotions that have been bubbling their way to the surface since 1992′s now-legendary Invocation Of Evil demo reared its maniacal head upon the underground circuit.

Says INTERNAL BLEEDING of their early albums: “Our first two albums suffered from horrendous production which no doubt made it more challenging to get people to truly understand our music. And by the time our third and fourth albums were released, we had no label or tour support and limited resources to keep things going. By the early-to-mid 2000s, we were a broken and dispirited unit and eventually fell into inactivity and disarray… These experiences, plus other personal setbacks and tragedies, are the impetus behind Imperium…with Imperium, the time has finally come to turn the tables.

Imperium delivers seven tracks including a three-part trilogy featuring guest appearances by Suffocation’s Terrance Hobbs and Frank Mullen as well as former INTERNAL BLEEDING throat Frank Rini.

Coinciding with the release of Imperium, INTERNAL BLEEDING will wage war on North America as part of this year’s Carnival Of Death tour. Set to embark on October 3rd, 2014 in New York City, the trek will fracture the infrastructures of more than two-dozen cities coming to a close on November 3rd, 2014, in Montreal. The band will be joined by Suffocation, Kataklysm, Jungle Rot and Pyrexia.
