IMPERIAL AGE – PRESS KIT


Biography (short)

Founded in Moscow by singers/songwriters Alexander “Aor” Osipov and Jane “Corn” Odintsova in 2012, IMPERIAL AGE has become Russia’s most famous symphonic metal band and the country’s second most-internationally-touring rock act, achieving acclaim from fans, press and even the founder of symphonic metal – Christofer Johnsson (Therion) – himself.

In 2016 – 2019 the band has toured Europe 4 times, with a total of 103 concerts (out of those 38 as headliners).

Musically, IMPERIAL AGE combine heavy metal with a symphony orchestra, folk instruments, 3 lead singers (1 male and 2 female) and a full choir.

The records feature multiple collaborations with musicians from DIMMU BORGIR, RHAPSODY OF FIRE, THERION, ARKONA and the Moscow Conservatory Chamber Choir.

Lyrically, the band deals with the idea of ancient prehistoric advanced civilizations (Atlantis, Hyperborea, Lemuria) and their legacy in the form of the Western Magical Tradition (Hermetism, Kabbalah etc.) carried through history by secret societies and magical orders (Orphism, Templars, Rosenkreuz, Freemasons, Golden Dawn etc).

That said, we have a distribution deal with Sound Pollution / Black Lodge Records (IN FLAMES, SABATON) for the world and a licencing deal with Rubicon Music (URIAH HEEP, DORO, HOLY MOSES) for Japan. Previously, physical music was distributed by Adulruna Records (owned by Christofer Johnsson of THERION, with Sound Pollution as their distributor).
