There is a revival going on in the underground metal scene for the days of old school heavy metal. Remember bands like Iron Maiden and Judas Priest? Well, a six piece band is bringing that sound to the Central Illinois area, Imperius. They say on their Facebook page as “We are ready to Rock/Metal the area!”

Heavy Metal at it’s Purest

Here is an excellent demo for their song “Driven to Madness” which you can also find on their Reverb Nation page.

Also check out them performing this song live last December. They have a few videos also available on their YouTube page.

How to See Them Live

If you are in the Central Illinois area you can check them out live on May 11 at the Brass Rail in Peoria as they open for Tyrant and Cypher Six.
