Imperium is the solo project of STRIKE drummer Mika Brushane.
Mika has been playing drums and percussion in various bands since 1981 and has played all genres from jazz to metal and composed songs for different genres and this legacy of mixed genres can be heard in the IMPERIUM songs! The music is a combination of Hard Rock and Melodic Metal and it has a big dose of 80’s feel and sounds in it.
The project started in 2012 when Mika composed a new song for the new STRIKE album and realized that there were more songs in him that needed to be released. For this project, he wrote all songs and lyrics, and was playing all drums, bass, keyboards and singing backing vocals.
All lead vocals and guitars were taken care off by various very talented musicians from the Finnish metal/rock scene. The album’s post production was mixed by Erkka Korhonen (Urban Tale, Northern Kings, Ari Koivunen, Raskasta Joulua) and mastered by the legendary Mika Jussila (Nightwish, Children of bodom, Stratovarius, HIM etc.) The album was produced and recorded during 2012-2015 by Mika himself at his Groovehouse studio in Vantaa, Finland.
