Russian symphonic metal act Imperial Age has announced a live stream of an exclusive 120-minute set with a full stage production. See the details below.
Imperial Age is a real symphonic metal wonder notable for immense professionalism and remarkable vocal diversity of three vocalists Jane “Corn” Odintsova (mezzo-soprano), Anna “Kiara” Moiseeva (soprano) and Alexander “Aor” Osipov (tenor). Formed in 2012 by singers/composers Alexander Osipov and Jane Odintsova, Imperial Age have quickly become not only the second most-internationally touring metal band from Russia, but also attracted the attention of the legendary maestro Christofer Johnsson (Therion) – the very founder of symphonic metal himself – and Sergei Lazar (Arkona) – co-leader of the most famous Russian metal band.
“While most of the world is in lockdown, live music moves to the Internet, and so we are doing something we have never done before! On 25th April we will play a full show in Moscow, Russia, with costumes, stage decorations, sound and light,” revealed the band on April 10th. “We will be playing a 120-minute set including most of our songs plus some new ones from our upcoming album which have never been played before. In between the songs we will be chatting and answering your questions in real time – directly from the stage.”
For this show, the band rented a venue and the sound will be transferred directly from the mixing console and the picture filmed with four professional TV cameras. “All of this will be mixed and STREAMED LIVE IN REAL TIME WORLDWIDE in FULL HD quality on our website through a dedicated broadband Internet connection,” says the band, adding: “The broadcast is delivered by the same team of professionals who brought you The Legacy of Atlantis music video under the leadership of our friend and film director Alexander Kadyanov. This will essentially be a live music video of 20+ songs broadcast in real time.”
You will be able to watch the show from all around the world and free of charge, but it will be possible to donate to the band during the stream. The band explains: “We are putting significant costs towards it from our own pocket, and all the musicians and crew involved (14 people + venue) have to be paid, so there will be a ‘DONATE’ button right under the video – so that those of you who are able to do so might support the event with as much as you can.”
Furthermore, there will be a live chat right below the video so don’t hesitate to ask some questions. The band members will be taking turns to answer them in between the songs.
So don’t forget to tune in on April 25th at 19:00 CET / 6pm GMT / 13:00 EST!
