Imperanon was a Finnish melodic death band (just like Children of Bodom and Wintersun) that existed for almost ten years, but only professionally released one album, which was under the Nuclear Blast label. Oh, I think I should mention that their lead guitarist is also one of the guitarists fo. ait for i. INTERSUN!

Imperanon was a Melodic Death Metal band from Finland. The band was formed in 1999 by Jaakko Nyland and Asko Sartanen. They were joined by Aleksi Sihvonen and Eki Nurmikari and recorded their first demo in 2002, titled Until The End. After this, Sartanen left the band to be replaced by Aleksi Virta and Lauri Koskenniemi. A further demo was recorded (called Imperanon) before the band signed to Nuclear Blast Records.

This song is by Imperanon and appears on the album Stained (2004). Blinded by a betrayel scene,No one there to keep my trustAll these serpents in my head,Make me see what I must. Scarred heart and wounded mindMy own blood now stains my handsFueled with rage, to stand and fight,I will be the last who stands. Haunted by a murder scene,My weakness was my only hopeBroken alliance, broken trust,From now on I live for myself.

Imperanon embodies nearly everything that is both good and bad regarding the Finnish melodic metal scene. Stained is a highly technical, spirited album that features an excess of classical melodies and audacious synth arrangements. As such, it can be enjoyable on a superficial level, but has little lasting power or deeper meaning on the whole. As most of this lineup moved on to bigger and better things, Stained can at the very least be viewed as a requisite stepping stone and time capsule of the scene in which it was released. What needs to be dealt with right away is Sihvonen's vocals

Imperanon’s lone release goes about cloning the Children of Bodom sound admirably. Never before in the history of heavy metal has one band sounded so alike another. As impossible as it sounds, Imperanon makes Kalmah and Norther look like avant-garde bands when it comes to innovation. However, the reason the big red . hangs on the left corner of the screen is because these guys manage to infuse the power metal/growling vocal formula with excellent song writing.
