Review Submitted by Lauren Carney
Imminence formed in 2010 and has since then become one of Sweden’s most promising bands packed with a diverse sound embracing everything from metalcore to acoustic music.
After 2 years spent in the studio This Is Goodbye was dropped on the 31st of march which is the band’s second full-length album, while this album is differently not as heavy as their last album it will still see it’s listeners having a rather enjoyable listen and is definitely one that is worth getting your hands on for a listen.
I hadn’t listened to Imminence before doing this review but I do have to be honest in saying I really enjoyed it and could definitely see myself rocking out, front row at one of their shows.
This Is Goodbye is the first track on the album and it starts with those powerful screams. This track was definitely a great choice to kick off with, as it really gets the listener’s attention. The intense shredding and the powerful bass sounds, as the track goes further along it starts to slow down giving you a very rea; notion that this album is going to be awesome.
Diamonds was one of the standouts songs for me, the catchy lyrics that are filled with passion that makes it almost impossible not to be drawn into everything this track has to offer, the guitars offer quite the powerhouse riffs at times, that just leave you wanting more.
Broken love. It’s not very often that a vocalist has the power to bring you one catchy tune after another. Whatever Eddie is doing seems to be working, this is yet another track on the album that you will find hard not to turn up loud so that everyone can hear, Harald on guitar is just captivating and is the perfect fit for Imminence.
Coming undone. Peter’s drumming really shines throughout this entire track, giving Coming Undone just what it needs to really get your attention if they haven’t already. You can acually hear why the guys spent two years in the studio. Each track just comes out it just gets better and better.
UP. Starting with guitar and bass work that is so embracing it seems to captivate you, this track doesn’t full short of being another one of their better tracks on this album with an extremely catchy beat and easy to sing along lyrics this is sure to be one of the fan favourites at live gigs.
Daggers. Imminence almost makes it nearly impossible to just sit still and not at least tap along to their songs, and soothing vocals behind the story the bands telling. This could possibly be one of the must have albums this year in your collection.
Cold As Stone opens up with some crazy riffs that are definitely some of the best riffs we have heard on this album, vocals from Eddie claw their way through your entire body leaving nothing but goose bumps in their place.
Keep Me. It almost makes it hard to believe this is only the second full length album from the guys but I hope to see more like this in their future work, catchy tunes riffs coming left right and canter and intense beats there isn’t much more you could ask for.
Not A Rescue. The lyrics in this track leaves an imprint on you as you feel every kind of emotion that Eddie has to offer that seem to only get more powerful as this track is complemented by the work of Harald on guitar.
Ivory Black. As we almost reach the end of this album the tracks only seem to get stronger and more powerful which is no surprise from this young group, there is nothing more refreshing then a band that leaves a lasting impression on you leaving you wanting more.
Desert Place. The final track on this album while not as powerful or filled with those riffs we have heard with every other track. Desert Place seems to bring us back down to reality. It also has a very touching message in it, filled with raw emotions that leave a lasting impression on its listeners.
