In 2012 we founded @imperialage with @cornimperial . We recorded Turn The Sun Off!, filmed 2 video clips and released the record by ourselves with our own money (most of it borrowed) in November of the same year. We didn’t have a team, so we simply hired our friends and colleagues from the local Russian metal scene.

In 2013-2014 we mostly played as support acts for international bands visiting Russia: Epica, Paradise Lost, Finntroll, OOMH!, The 69 Eyes, Tarja and Therion. We also played a few headliner shows in Moscow, St. Petersburg and Kazan. Two of them with an 8-person choir and an 8-person orchestra )

In 2014 the breaking moment came. In September, we went on a month-long expedition to Tibet. We visited many magical places, to some of which westerners have never been admitted before. And in the end we did a Cora around Mt. Kailash. It is said that it helps to realise one’s inner dreams and most sacred goals… A month after that we were opening for Therion in St. Petersburg. All the time during the concert Christofer Johnsson was sitting behind the stage so that the crowd would not notice him, listening to the music. After the show he gave our music a very high assessment. Since that time we have been good friends and we are now.

In a few months he offered us to distribute our CDs via his label Adulruna Records. And after another few months he offered us to join Therion on a European tour. Christofer is the person who made us known and we are endlessly grateful to him and will always be!! he made our metalhead’s dream come true - when one of your idols becomes your friend in mentor. Now how probable is that?? )) So, in 2016 we released the EP Warrior Race via Adulruna. It had only 3 new songs, the rest were from Turn the Sun Off!, recorded with Alexandra Sidorova, and a To Mega Therion cover, which Christofer wrote was the best Therion cover ever. And then our first international tour followed. After it we had problems with the team - and Alexandra parted.
Then you guys gave us 3600 Eur to record our new album.
We had to find a new soprano, held auditions and found @annakiaraimperial , who has been with us ever since.

ZIPPERS!!! Perhaps by this point you are wondering about the zippers that we had promised. As we wrote before, the manufacturer produced shit, and we even announced a callback of all the zippers (scroll down on this page) sold on tour. So now we are waiting for them to redo them properly, and once they are done we will send them out ADDITIONALLY!

The whole lot which will be sent this week is on the picture (Cat not included 😉 ).

All Imperial Age CDs have been successfully released in Japan by Rubicon Music!
http://rubicon-music.com

P.S. follow us in real time as we conquer the world! 😉

First of all, I would like to say THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! Thank you all Imperial Age fans, because you mean the world to us.
This month has become very important for us. Because it became the first month in the lives of myself and @cornimperial when income from music (i.e. Imerial Age) became our main source of money.
We spent around 13 years getting to this point. We have always dreamt of living off our music, as it is the dream for most artists. But in reality just a handful of them ever reach it.
Of course, this is JUST the beginning. But years of extremely hard work in the music industry and 5.5 years of labour within Imperial Age have finally brought their fruit!
We are extremely grateful to all of you guys and we can say that this month we have finally reached Level 0! Now we can start the climb up to eventually become a stadium-sized band, with your help!! P.S. We also have newz for the crowdfunders: we are getting the tshirts (finally!!!) this Thursday - and we send out everything except the zippers (I said in a post previously that we had a problem with the manufacturer and we had to call abck the zippers - so we are still sorting that out). HOWEVER we will include a lot of valuable bonuses on top of the perks involved to reward you guys for patiently waiting for 2 years! Those who have tshirts in their perks will get +1 different shirt for free. Orhers will get extra CDs, posters, patches etc. we love you!! ❤️ #imperialage #thankyou
