We are beyond excited to tell you that Impending Triumph has signed a record deal with Jawbreaker Records. The band’s first EP will be out on May 5th on all formats: digital, tape, CD and vinyl.
Impending Triumph is a brand new heavy metal project from metal veterans Déhà (Wolvennest, Dropdead Chaos etc.) and François (Angellore, Abduction). The upcoming self-titled debut EP delivers a powerful and passionate tribute to the genre, drawing inspiration from legendary bands like Manowar, Accept, Running Wild, and Helloween. The lyrics follow the story of Puritania, a fictional empress, and touch on the importance of free-thinking and standing one’s ground. While there are countless great and old-school sounding bands out there with amazing riffs, sadly the number of stellar vocalists is far from its peak numbers back in the glory days. That’s why François’ powerful and emphatic vocals – backed up by the equally impressive Halford-style falsettos from Déhà – immediately caught my attention. So here we have two great vocalists in the same band, packaged together with solid songwriting, eye-catching artwork, dynamic production, and an epic fantasy concept behind it all. What’s not to like?
Comments from François: “Déhà and I have met up several times between July 2020 and November 2021 to write and record new material, and we are now very impatient to share the results of these sessions with you! The whole idea behind Impending Triumph is to give a heartfelt tribute to heavy metal as a genre, as well as exploring new territories on a lyrical level and diving into the realms of heroic fantasy. Therefore, all the events depicted in our lyrics take place in a ‘sword and sorcery’ type of universe, in which we follow the exploits and conquests of Puritania, an empress who rules with an iron hand. We couldn’t think of a better label to team up with for the release of our debut EP. Jawbreaker Records shares our love and passion for traditional heavy metal and perfectly understand what Impending Triumph is all about. We are stoked and raise our glasses to celebrate the start of what will hopefully be a long and fruitful collaboration!”
