One of the heaviest tours of 2022 is coming to North America this winter. Death metal legends Immolation will bring the new masked face of experimental metal, Imperial Triumphant, on the road alongside death/doom up-and-comers Mortiferum. Immolation have also released the new song “Apostle” from the upcoming album Acts of God.

Immolation’s Acts of God, their first album in five years, will be released Feb. 18 via Nuclear Blast. Pre-order the album here. The first single, “Apostle,” is a classic piece of Immolation violence, blending dark moods with break-neck death metal. Listen to the crushing track below and check out its lyrics below.

Immolation, "Apostle"

Immolation, "Apostle" Lyrics

From the bloodied altars
Of the wicked king
Come poison doctrines
Of Godless rage

From the fetid gutters
Of sickened minds
Come corrosive diatribes
Aimed to destroy

Lead them to madness
Let me haunt you with these words
This chorus of evil
Resounding, dark, triumphant

Worship and trust, devote yourselves to us
Murderous lust, follow through you must

In flashing scenes of horror
Come pestilential storms
Piercing placid dreams
Awoken by our thunder

Explosive bursts of death
Bring coffins to the earth
In chaotic waves of hate
The skies rain down our venom

Sacrifice, the hounds will bleed
Crippling fear, bait them with terror
Growing beneath, our roots, so far will reach
Programmed to destroy, our perfect soldier

Forever the monster
Our secrets held deep
After the purge
Their silence will keep

Lead them to sorrow
Through taunting cryptic verse
This chorus of pain
Resounding, dark, triumphant

Immolation received near-universal acclaim for their most recent album, 2017’s Atonement, as have Imperial Triumphant for their 2020 breakout album, Alphaville. Multiple generations of top-tier metal will collide for the 2022 tour, giving fans a unique banquet full of metal’s evolution over four decades.

The tour will kick off Feb. 18 in Richmond, Va., and will end on March 19 in New York City. Imperial Triumphant will play until March 13, with Black Anvil taking over from March 15-18. For the tour’s final show in New York City, Immolation and Black Anvil will be joined by Demolition Hammer, Mortician and Funeral Leech.
