Imperial Triumphant Release Cover Of Rush’s “Jacob’s Ladder”, Announce Headlining Shows


Just in from avant-garde metal trio Imperial Triumphant is another entry in their cover series. This time around they’ve taken to putting their own spin on Rush‘s “Jacob’s Ladder“. The song is the third in a series of covers the group have shared this year, which has also included their renditions of Radiohead‘s “Paranoid Android” and Dizzy Gillespie‘s “A Night In Tunisia“.

Bassist Steve Blanco commented:

“Ascension towards a higher place through twelve ancient steps of Jacob’s Ladder. Rush‘s influence is undoubtedly far and wide in so much heavy music, and although we consider our music quite different from theirs, a strong thread holds it all together. As big fans of their giant body of work, we wanted to include a song in our cover series to pay tribute to this great unique band. We also wanted the cover image to reflect the legendary ‘Permanent Waves’ artwork.”

The group have also added a trio of headlining shows to their fall touring plans, read on for where you can catch them.
