IMPERIAL (FRANCE)


Imperial is a french Metal band formed in 1992 by Qojau and Skrow. The band starts to play primitive Death/Thrash-Metal songs. In 1993, Julien quits the band. Qojau and Skrow continue to make songs in duo and choose IMPERIAL for band name. Skrow stops to play drums for guitar and starts to sing on songs. The drums parts are played by a drum machine "The Boss". In 1994, IMPERIAL duo makes 3 concerts and records 5 tracks for the first demo tape "War Spirit". The musical style sounds more extreme and original, and the band uses more Black-Metal influences. Now Skrow makes all vocal performances. In 1995, IMPERIAL record 6 new songs for their second demo tape "The Red Moon" + a new edition of the "War Spirit" demo. The band has now his own musical style, still influenced by all extreme and primitive Metal scene. Skrow starts to write and sing lyrics in french ("Lumière Noire" is the first IMPERIAL song in french), and plays bass on rehearsals. In 1996, IMPERIAL record their third demo tape "Chapitre Trois : Men Of God". The 8 songs are more technical, 3 songs are singing in french and Skrow plays keyboards parts during all the session. The demo comes the favorite tape of IMPERIAL maniacs. In 1997 the band decides to record 5 new songs in studio for making a promotional tape destined to labels. These 5 songs are all singing in French. Osmose Productions sign IMPERIAL for 2 albums and 1 MCD. The first album "Aux Crépuscules" is recording in 1997, still by the duo Qojau (guitar/drums programming) and Skrow (vocals/bass), and out in 1998. The 5 songs of the "Promo Tape '97" are include on the album.
