IMMINENCE began as a music project, the fall of 2009, with roots in the melodic death metal genre. The project was founded by guitarist Harald Barrett and the former percussionist in the southernmost part of Sweden.
After a couple of creative months they recruited a bass player, and shortly after, Eddie Berg on vocals.
As the group developed, another space had to be filled. In late February 2010, guitarist Alex Arnoldsson joined the group. Simultaneously a decision was made, the band were to be called IMMINENCE.
By this time they had slowly started to leave the original genre, melodic death metal, and begun breaking new ground. With a more open-minded character, new influences were gathered from a variety of different metal genres. The sound created was far more unique, and the quality of the music became more atmospheric, dynamic and powerful than before.
Six months later IMMINENCE entered the studio for the first time and recorded their first demo.
The composition of band members has changed along the way; and until finally Peter Hanström took over the drums, other drummers had filled the place. Short before their first self-issued EP “Born Of Sirius” was to be recorded in March 2012, former bassist left the band and was temporarily replaced by Patrik Tynell during the recording session.
Ultimately Fredrik Rosdahl joined the ranks as the new fifth member and bass player.
”Born Of Sirius” was met with great appreciation and enthusiasm by the fans as well as the critics, whereof one striking review by Close-Up Magazine (8/10).
The band has since then opened for acts likes HAMMERFALL, AMARANTHE, HARDCORE SUPERSTAR and been hand-picked by CLOSE-UP MAGAZINE to perform at Sweden's largest metal festival, METALTOWN, with bands such as SLAYER, LAMB OF GOD, MARILYN MANSON, KILLSWITCH ENGARE, IN FLAMES and many more.
2013, IMMINENCE signs with ORKA NETWORKS too handle all their promotion and booking in southern Asia as well as a record deal with WE ARE TRIUMPHANT RECORDS distributed by VICTORY RECORDS. The band is current with their second music video "Wine & Water" and the release of their second EP "Return To Helios" through WE ARE TRIUMPHANT RECORDS.
