    The Iconic Kenny G Plays Sax on Nightmarish New Death

    Who had “Kenny G. plays sax on a death metal song” on their 2022 collaboration scorecard? Though it’s something you might not have expected, it works marvelously well as the legendary sax player perfectly adds to the cacophony of heavy brutality being laid down in the the new Imperial Triumphant song “Merkurius Gilded.” And the performance turns out to be a family affair as Kenny G’s son Max Gorelick also turns up on the track.

    Kenny G. is one of the best-selling artists of all-time, playing soprano, alto and tenor sax while becoming a superstar in the smooth jazz genre. After starting his solo career in the early ’80s, he’s collaborated with Aretha Franklin, Dionne Warwick, Smokey Robinson, Patti LaBelle, Andrea Bocelli, Aaron Neville and many more, and now you can add Imperial Triumphant to that list.

    The musician also turns up in the video for the song, though you might miss him at first. He’s masked and mysterious tucked away standing still in a corner, until emerging mid video to take center stage, his curly locks peering out the backside of his mask as he unleashes a breathtaking sax solo perfectly complimenting the wall of guitar and drum chaos.

    The clip, directed by the band’s own Steve Blanco, is a decadent promo showcasing the band in a pull back visual playing amongst a group of beauties watching on as they crush their lavish surroundings. “What once was a gilded age of industry and exceptional growth only to be stricken with panic that shall leave the common man in the dust, dried up and faded away. Merkurius looks down upon Forty Second Street mobs releasing their fortunes into the sky of ignorance,” state the group of the song.

    As for how the sax superstar ended up on an Imperial Triumphant song, the group tells Loudwire, “Kenny’s son Max is a good friend of the band’s and has collaborated with us in the past. He was even a live member for a few tours in 2017. Zachary asked if he and his father would be interested in doing a duet on our new album. The rest is history and we are grateful.”

    Kenny and Max are just two of the guests turning up on the band’s new album. The group already released the song “Maximalist Scream” featuring Snake of Voivod fame, and others turning up on the Spirit of Ecstasy album that’s due July 22 include Testament’s Alex Skolnick, Mr. Bungle’s Trey Spruance, Andromeda Anarchia, Sarai Woods, horn players J. Walter Hawkes and Ben Hankle, Percy Jones, SEVEN)SUNS, Colin Marston and Jonas Rolef.
