Description

Imperium is the solo project of Finnish drummer and songwriter Mika Brushane. Mika has been playing drums and percussion in various bands since 1981, has played all genres from jazz to metal and this is in the positive sense to listen to the Imperium songs. The music is melodic rock / AOR and has a big dose of 80s feel and sound. The project started in 2012 and in the following years three albums followed on AOR Heaven (Dreamhunter - 2016, Beyond The Stars - 2018 and Heaven Or Hell - 2020). In Imperium, Mika is responsible for songwriting and plays all drums, keyboards, bass, sings all backing vocals and produces. All lead vocals and guitars are played by top musicians from the rock/metal scene , including RobbielaBlanc, Michael Bormann, Joel Hoekstra. The post-production of the album was also done by top professionals. The album was mixed by Erkka Korhonen (Dark Sarah, Urban Tale, Northern Kings, Ari Koivunen, Raskasta Joulua Tour) and mastered by the legendary Mika Jussila (Nightwish, Children of Bodom, Stratovarius, HIM etc.).
