SWEDISH SUPERGROUP IMPERA TO RELEASE EMPIRE OF SIN ALBUM IN JANUARY; DETAILS REVEALED Swedish hard rockers, Impera, will release their new album, Empire Of Sin, on January 23rd via Escape Music. Impera are a melodic rock “supergroup” that consists of a guitar player who, seemingly effortlessly, delivers stunning solos and riffs of that classic, timeless grit you thought were killed off by grunge coupled with a pounding bass that will put you through the wall. Add blistering drumming that’s as solid as it is technically challenging and on top of all that, add a vocalist that sings circles around the competition. The whole band consists of solid musicians who have earned their wings through hard work with an impressive number of world-class stars over the years. Their combined CV reads as a who’s who in today’s rock. In various constellations they have played with Vinnie Vincent and Bruce Kulick from KISS, Brian Robertson from Thin LIzzy, John Levén from Europe (who guests on this new album) and many more. Guitarist Tommy Denander alone has played with almost everyone. His track record is jaw-dropping, having made solo albums with key members of Toto and performed on albums with Michael Jackson, Paul Stanley, Alice Cooper and Ricky Martin. His own project Radioactive has recorded some fine melodic rock songs. “We all started to play because of KISS”, J.K states. We’re huge KISS fans and collectors and even good friends with them. KISS is the reason we discovered how great rock and roll is. And following their tradition, you can count on a stage show that will take your breath away, complete...
