IMPERIA is an atmospheric metal band who’s sound is especially evident by the distinguished voice of Helena Iren Michaelsen who sings in a variety of styles from deep emotional feelings to extreme operatic expressions and grunts.
IMPERIA’s music is full of vivacity, it is heavy, bombastic and orchestral, but it also contains elements of pure metal. The band is a true cross-border unit of musicians originating from different countries: Norway, Finland, Germany and Belgium.
The first release of IMPERIA was a cover-song “Lotus Eaters” for a Dead Can Dance tribute album which was released in the spring of 2004. In the summer of 2004 IMPERIA recorded their debut album “The Ancient Dance of Qetesh”, which was released in autumn of 2004.
In 2005 the band recorded another project of Helena called Angel. The album “A Woman’s Diary – Chapter I” was released by Black Lotus Records in the spring of 2005.
Towards the end of 2005 IMPERIA teamed up with the German Massacre Records. The second IMPERIA album “Queen of Light” was released in the early 2007.
In the autumn of 2010 IMPERIA started recording their third album titled as “Secret Passion”. The album was released in 2011.
In April 2015 IMPERIA entered the Spacelab studio in Germany once more and recorded 13 tracks for the new album. The title “Tears Of Silence” was chosen as a title for the new album, again released on Massacre Records.
IMPERIA will release their 5th album in February 2019
