”For us it‘s not a step back, but rather a step inwards. We didn‘t want to write something that was expected of us, we wanted to make music that was meaningful to ourselves and didn‘t limit the outcome of our new songs. There was definitely a sense of pressure regarding our future sound. Coming from taking such a big step with our last album, we didn‘t know where to start or where to go. I think we also concerned ourselves too much with what other people would think. After trying a lot of different directions we opened up all the doors and broke down the barriers. Feeling compelled to only trust our own instincts and challenge the position that we gained after ‘This Is Goodbye‘. You can expect something darker and more personal from us than ever before.” – Eddie Berg (vocals/violins) and Harald Barrett (guitars).
‘Paralyzed‘ displays one of the sides of what IMMINENCE is and always have been. Once again the band wanted to show that they can write and release any kind of music as long as it‘s honest and sincere. After finishing a long studio session, ‘Paralyzed’ is the first single of an imminent new album.
Catch the band live on their headline tour in December!

Fronted by vocalist and violinist Eddie Berg, guitarist Harald Barrett, drummer Peter Hanström and bass player Christian Höijer; IMMINENCE was formed in Trelleborg and has over the years become one of Sweden’s most promising acts with a diverse sound and universe, embracing everything from metalcore to acoustic music. Founded by Eddie and Harald when they were just teenagers, the band grew organically with a constantly expanding fan-base from all over the world while being a highly active touring band in Europe since 2014.
