Avantgarde metal trio Imperial Triumphant has dropped a new single via Century Media Records: a cover of Rush’s “Jacob’s Ladder”! The track is the third in a series of covers.
Steve Blanco (bass) commented in a press release stating: “Ascension towards a higher place through twelve ancient steps of Jacob’s Ladder. Rush’s influence is undoubtedly far and wide in so much heavy music, and although we consider our music quite different from theirs, a strong thread holds it all together. As big fans of their giant body of work, we wanted to include a song in our cover series to pay tribute to this great unique band. We also wanted the cover image to reflect the legendary ‘Permanent Waves’ artwork.”
