Imperial Triumphant Release Cover Of Metallica’s “Motorbreath”


Imperial Triumphant‘s fourth entry in their cover series has made its way to the internet. This time around the avantgarde metal trio took a stab at Metallica‘s early ‘Kill ‘Em All” cut, “Motorbreath“.

Bassist Steve Blanco commented:

“As a Metal band, only a fool would believe we aren’t influenced by Metallica. Many miles and hours traversing the Northern Hemisphere have we listened to the live & studio Metallica greatness from the 1980s and 1990s, and so have we decided to pay homage with a nostalgic cover from that earliest album recorded in upstate NY. Play it loud because Metal is the law.”

A newly shared interview with Decibel editor-in-chief Albert Mudrian also finds the band expounding upon their love of Metallica. Past covers released as part of Imperial Triumphant‘s series include Radiohead‘s “Paranoid Android“, Dizzy Gillespie‘s “A Night In Tunisia“, and Rush‘s “Jacob’s Ladder“.
