Today (Nov. 29th), avantgarde metal trio Imperial Triumphant has dropped a new single via Century Media Records: a cover of Wayne Shorter‘s “Nefertiti”! The fifth (and final!) song in a series of covers, “Nefertiti” can be heard now HERE; the video [directed and edited by Brendan McGowan; produced by Vile Luxe Studios can be seen HERE.

Steve Blanco (bass) comments: “Occasionally in any art form there are works that stand out and define an epoch. A great work that is the apex and culmination of the very history it was built upon.  To say that the late 1960’s Miles Davis Quintet was part of such a moment is no understatement. The hand of time reveals. Humanity’s voice can be heard deep within the mystery. Here is our humble albeit a bit experimental homage to one of our favorite pieces of music. ‘Nefertiti’, to be heard now and through the ages.”

The previously released singles/covers can be heard below:
–“Paranoid Android” (Radiohead cover) – HERE
–“A Night In Tunisia” (DizzyGillespie cover) – HERE
–“Jacob’s Ladder” (Rush cover): HERE
–“Motorbreath” (Metallica cover): HERE
