IMPERANON Part Ways With NUCLEAR BLAST, Seek New Label Home

April 21, 2005

Finnish melodic thrash/death metallers IMPERANON have posted the following update on their official web site:

"January 2004 after the recordings of 'Stained', Aleksi [Sihvonen, guitar] went to the military and got out on July when Jaakko [Nylund, drums] started his service. Jaakko got out April 7th 2005.

"At some point we got an e-mail from Nuclear Blast stating that our partnership was over, so now we are searching label to publish our records.

"Meanwhile Aleksi [Virta] was asked to join FINNTROLL to play keyboards on their European tour and so he went, and is still there.

"Teemu [Mäntysaari] is currently selling and buying guitars, man the guy shows up at rehearsals with a new guitar almost every time =) And now he even bought a drum kit! And he's working with WINTERSUN as well.

"A few days ago we finished a new three-song demo tape, which was self-recorded with programmed drums (Jaakko was in the military so couldn't participate in the recordings of the demo). Let's see what the future brings to us with it so stay tuned!"

IMPERANON's debut album, "Stained", was released last May through Nuclear Blast. That CD was recorded at Sonic Pump Studios with engineer Nino Laurenne and producer Titus Hjelm and was mixed at Finnvox studios with Mikko Karmila.
