IMPERIAL AGE – Album „Warrior Race“ & Tour w/ THERION (Adulruna/Sweden)

Imperial Age from Russia join forces to release their new album with Adulruna Records that is owned by the Swedish legend Christofer Johnsson from Therion.  Imperial Age is a Russian Symphonic Metal band from Moscow founded in 2012 by Alexander „Aor“ Osipov. The band received positive acclaim worldwide without any label support and has already toured with bands like Therion, Tarja, Epica, Paradise Lost, Oomph!, The 69 Eyes, Tristania, Arkona or Finntroll. Imperial Age performed multiple headliner shows, also with a chamber orchestra and choir.

Christofer Johnsson says about the new signing: “I’m proud to welcome IMPERIAL AGE as the very first band to join in with my new business model which will be publically announced upon the release of this album next year.”

“To me, this is a watermark event. This is something I’ve been going to for the past 10 years of my music career, this is a dream come true, and I am sure that this is the long-awaited beginning of a wonderful journey that all of us will be witnessing in the years to come. It is very hard to express in words my deepest gratitude to Chris and to all the others who have been supporting Imperial Age against all odds over the past 3 years. Thank you so much, and may the blessings of all the supreme forces guiding us all be with you!” adds the mastermind of the band, Alexander “Aor” Osipov.

The Imperial Age album “Warrior Race” (Digipak) features 9 songs including a cover of the famed Therion title “To Mega Therion” on the upcoming “Warrior Race” album, where Christofer Johnsson from Therion said that it is “the best THERION cover I have heard so far”.
