Dark Harvest Records has announced the signing of Philadelphia's I AM THE TRIREME.Few bands can match the ferocity and sheer brutal combination of melodic death and vile symphonic black metal that I AM THE TRIREME (pronounced "i am the tri' reem") has conjured. The group brings forth a relentless, fast-paced, crushing wall of blackened brutality and haunting melodies. Listeners can expect to hear a searingly dark, aggressive blend of brutality and purely sinister blackened metal that is sure to leave them foaming at the mouth. Conceived in 2008, I AM THE TRIREME quickly began to heave their mass out of the dark abyss and shape themselves into a great leviathan in the world of extreme metal alongside acts such as ROTTING CHRIST, GOATWHORE, SUFFOCATION, EXHUMED, and literally countless other heavy hitters in the extreme metal community; proving I AM THE TRIREME themselves as equals in the genre. While never claiming to be strictly black metal, I AM THE TRIREME holds strong to belief of black metal in its purest form — unencumbered and in direct opposition of ALL religious ties and affiliations. In a time where ideals and strong beliefs have shifted into trends and thoughtless practices, leaving the scene littered with hollow shells in the image of our forefathers, I AM THE TRIREME sets a course true to their convictions and shines an unapologetic ghostly light through the fog into the beyond.
