Impera release second album 'Pieces Of Eden' this October

Impera-2-thumb

After an explosive 2012 Album “Legacy of Life” Impera are back with an even stronger album than before!!

Impera are a melodic rock “supergroup” that consists of a guitar player who, seemingly effortlessly, delivers stunning solos and riffs of that classic, timeless grit you thought were killed off by grunge coupled with a pounding bass that will put you through the wall. Add blistering drumming that’s as solid as it is technically challenging and on top of all that, add a vocalist that sings circles around the competition. There’s no keyboard player, no nonsense, no fuzz - just rock and roll!

To twist things around even further, the band is the brainchild of drummer J.K Impera who acts as the commander in chief in this state of rock. ”I started the band four years ago, and originally ex-Mötley Crüe vocalist John Corabi was on board to handle vocal duties”, J.K. says. ”However, our schedules couldn’t be matched, so I opted for a good friend of mine, who also happens to be one of Sweden’s best rock vocalists ever, Matti Alfonzetti”.

The whole band consists of solid musicians who have earned their wings through hard work with an impressive number of world-class stars over the years. Their combined CV reads as a who’s who in today’s rock. In various constellations they have played with Vinnie Vincent and Bruce Kulick from KISS, Brian Robertson from THIN LIZZY, John Levén from EUROPE and many more. Guitarist Tommy Denander alone has played with almost everyone. His track record is jaw-dropping, having made solo albums with key members of TOTO and performed on albums with Michael Jackson, Paul Stanley, Alice Cooper, Ricky Martin and Celine Dion. He recently toured Japan and Europe with Joe Lynn Turner of RAINBOW/MALMSTEEN fame, Toto’s Bobby Kimball and Chicago’s Bill Champlin. He is considered one of the world’s best session players and has contributed his axe work on an unsurpassed 2000+ albums. He is honoured with his own signature VGS guitar which features the innovative Ever tune bridge system and True Temperament frets.

“We all started to play because of KISS”, J.K states. We’re huge KISS-fans and collectors and even good friends with them. KISS is the reason we discovered how great rock and roll is.

And following their tradition, you can count on a stage show that will take your breath away, complete with fireworks, smoke, fire and all hell’s breaking loose! The amount of powder used in a single show would put the defence of a small European country to shame.

When “Legacy of Life” hit the streets back in October 2012 eveyone was so excited with this fresh sound these four guys had injected into the melodic rock industry, well just wait till you her “Pieces of Eden”, this is an album that will blow your mind.

Utter brilliance!
