More information about Dead Decades
As soon as Impure Wilhelmina got the idea for a covers album, they knew that “Fallen Angel” was a lock to make the track list.
“King Crimson is a band that all of us listen to regularly”, the band says, “and ‘Fallen Angel’ was a song that we quickly and unanimously agreed upon”.

“Fallen Angel” is the second single from the band’s upcoming EP. The first was a cinematic cover of Serge Gainsbourg’s “La Javanaise”, which you can watch HERE.
‘Dead Decades’ comes out on October 6, 2023. The EP also includes a cover of The Cure, along with two unreleased songs from their latest album ‘Antidote’.

It makes sense that Impure Wilhelmina are fans of King Crimson. After all, the Geneva quartet have followed the British prog legends by constantly breaking the mold. For 25 years now, they’ve rolled hardcore riffs, velveteen cleans, atmospheric sludge and gloomy melodies into post-metal that’s as sharp and versatile as a Swiss Army Knife. No wonder they’ve earned comparisons to KEN Mode, Paradise Lost and The Smiths.
“We didn’t really know what it would sound like to cover such a prog monument”, the band said about “Fallen Angel”. “But we were surprised – and also, very proud – to see how well it suited out harmonic style.”
