Imperium Dekadenz: “An Autumn Serenade”

As self-described “intelligent black metal,” the music of Germany’s Imperium Dekadenz reflects influences from its Scandinavian counterparts, but with a stronger balance of melodies, epic arrangements, and acoustic passages.  The result is an album that isn’t far removed from the dark beauty of At the Gates‘ classic Slaughter of the Soul.
