Imperial Triumphant drops Metallica cover “Motorbreath”

Avantgarde metal trio Imperial Triumphant has dropped a new single via Century Media Records: a cover of Metallica‘s “Motorbreath”! The fourth in a series of covers, “Motorbreath” can be heard  here.

Steve Blanco (bass) comments: “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.”
