This is Goodbye, the latest album from Sweden’s own Imminence, is composed of 11 songs plus three additional acoustic recordings and is due out March 31st 2017. They have spent the better part of two years writing while touring. They are making huge strides with the new album, which is more of an alternative sounding album, versus their last album which was more Post Metalcore. Imminence is compromised of Eddie Berg-vocals, Harald Barrett-guitar, Max Holmberg-bass, and Peter Hanstrom-drums.
The title track, “This is Goodbye,” opens with the powerful scream, followed by seriously killer guitar shredding, powerful drums, and bass. But then, it slows down for the first chorus. This album is alternative through and through, but for those fans who were into their post-Metalcore sound, have no fear you will not be let down by this record. They incorporate plenty of heavy riffs along with smooth clean vocals as well as some brutal vocal screaming. It is a very good correlation of the two genres.
Right off the bat I started with the title track like I always do. I have to be honest, I had never listened to them before, but was impressed immediately. Now, I’ve developed an eclectic music taste so I like to listen to just about everything. I can definitely see my self blasting this album, windows down in my car on a warm spring day. It is the kind of music you really get into and is that good I would want every one else to hear them too.
Some of my favorite songs from this album include the title “This is Goodbye,” “Diamonds,” “Daggers,” and “Cold as Stone.”I did thoroughly enjoy listening to this whole album. These guys sing and play with such passion it pulls you into the story they are relaying via their lyrics. If you are a fan of this band, a fan of alternative music, or really a fan of good music in general, check this album out when it becomes available.
I’m giving this an early prediction as one of the top alternative albums to come out this year.
