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.
The band is a true cross-border unit of musicians originating from different countries: Norway, Finland, Germany and Belgium.
