August 2019 Music Update
Our upcoming album “The Ruthless Divine” is almost complete. Aaron Robitsch (Crepuscle) is finishing composing the keys for a few remaining songs and then we will have 1 last round of mixing by Zack Ohren before mastering this beast of an album. All artwork once again has been completed by the superbly talented freelance artist Dusan Markovic. We are very excited to get this album completed, packaged and in your hands early 2020.
We currently are deep in the preparation stages to shoot our next music video at the end of September for a track off the upcoming album. This one will be very different from our last video release. As you all know last month Niviane released our 1stmusic video for our song “The Berserker” and it was really well received. If you haven’t seen it yet you are a total slacker!! HA HA! Here’s the link to watch and remedy that: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KbwHhFinD4E
Niviane has a couple upcoming local shows. 09/24 we will be main support for the mighty Amon Amarth and then on 10/08 we will be supporting Amorphis & Delain on their tour stop in Sacramento, CA. Tickets to both of these shows can be purchased through our website here:
Speaking of our webstore we just placed an order for restock of 3 of our most popular shirt designs and will have all sizes before the Amon Amarth show at Ace of Spades on 09/24. New store items also include the 2 sided “Druid King” guitar picks for just $1 and the 16 page full color Niviane program for $7.
And lastly as always… we are always writing and recording. 2 songs are officially completed for album #3 and the band will be starting on a 3rdtrack shortly plus a few other surprises we are working on so stay tuned.
Imagika will release our 8thstudio album “Only Dark Hearts Survive” on Dissonance Productions (UK) worldwide September 13th, 2019. Preorders are now available for North America through my online store here:

The 1stsingle and lyric video for the title track was released a week ago. If you haven’t heard or watched it please check it out here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BhU6hyH-yBg
The band has confirmed to local CD release shows for our faithful longtime fans. If in or around the area mark your calendars and watch as Imagika takes the stage for the 1sttime in almost a decade.
09/13/19 – Evolution Nightclub (Sunnyvale, CA)
09/14/19 – Toot’s Tavern (Crockett, CA) Potential tour dates may be in the works as well for those around the US and across the Atlantic. Lastly… mark this date down… 09/02/19… Imagika will be releasing something very cool.
No new update on Skinner this month. I have Zack tied up with completing the Niviane album. Once that’s done guitar tracking will move forward. A music video is in the planning stages and there has even been some chatter about a few live dates as well. I am very excited about this album as it is shaping up to be a killer release.
The new Hellscream release “Hate Machine” was be released July 26thworldwide on Pure Steel Records on both CD, Vinyl & digital. The album is in your face hyper power metal or speed metal or something. All I know is it is Metal!!! If you are a fan of the 1strelease you will not be disappointed. Order your copy of either album or a shirt even via my online shop: https://www.normanskinner.net/store
