|Swedish alternative metalcore outfit Imminence have, during the last few years, established their own highly unique brand and have done their part to push the genre beyond expectations. With the distinct use of classical string arrangements blended with the influence of ferocious Scandinavian metal, the sound and visual universe of the quintet stands out as incredibly innovative and exciting.
Fronted by vocalist and violinist Eddie Berg, guitarists Harald Barrett and Alex Arnoldsson, drummer Peter Hanström, and bassist Christian Höijer, Imminence release the heaviest and most extreme song in the quintet’s history with “Heaven Shall Burn.” Letting influences from melodic death metal, and unexpectedly even black metal, Imminence took the opportunity to premiere the brand the new single live at Wacken Festival 2023, leaving a crowd of more than 20 000 people in a state of amazement and asking for more.

After opening a new release cycle with the success from the two latest singles “Come Hell or High Water” and “Desolation,” quickly achieving millions of streams and a rapid growth in social media following, Imminence recently announced their very first tour in North America. As always, the group never ceases to do the unexpected, and decided to embark on the tour as a headliner. Within 48 hours, the entire tour was sold out and upgraded, recognizing Imminence as one of the most strongly demanded act on the international market today.
The cycle of the previous album Heaven In Hiding closed with an exclusive Deluxe Edition release, including the single “Jaded,” Imminence continued to gain viral attention on all social media platforms, partially due to the remarkable Live In Studio recordings, and experienced an impressive growth of +100,000 followers and millions of streams over the course of just a few months this year.
With four full length studio albums, over 220,000,000 streams, +570,000 combined online followers, and closing in on 800,000 monthly Spotify listeners, Imminence monumental touring history continues this summer. After selling out headline shows all over the continent and supporting metal legends In Flames in late 2022, the bands festival season includes some of Europe’s most significant anchor festivals such as Wacken, Summerbreeze, Reload, Tuska Open Air, along with supporting genre pioneers Architects.
