Filmed by director Kirk Farrington and adapted from a concept developed by bassist Jay Liff and vocalist Keith DeVito, the video was shot in a chaotic style to match the frenzied mind of the video's protagonist. The theme behind "Fabricating Bliss" revolves itself around the chaotic decent into the mind of someone who suffers from symphorophilia, a mental disorder in which sexual arousal is achieved by watching disasters and catastrophes. In this case, the disaster is a traffic accident.
"'Fabricating Bliss' is a great opening song for our Imperium album," notes DeVito, "and we're really glad that we got the chance to do a video for it. Kirk really helped our vision come to life. We hope our fans dig it."

"There's a charisma and personality in an album like Imperium and in a band like INTERNAL BLEEDING that is simply absent in so much of the brutal, technical or slamming death metal that's put out there these days...This is an album worth going out of your way to hear," - The Sludgelord
"...a massive slab of slamming death metal, but done with some actual intellect..." - Dead Rhetoric
"The band has taken great care to come back with an album that not only fulfills a gap in the band's career but also looks back to the reasons why INTERNAL BLEEDING made such a mark in the death metal community to begin with." - Selective Memory
"Play Imperium at full volume, then quickly get out of its way as it destroys everything nearby." - Wonderbox Metal
"...a few moments of fun...mixed in with all the Dying Fetus-by-way-of-Cannibal Corpse sounds that you'd expect, delivered with the whiff of originators, not followers, adds up to a solid, and surprisingly fun, slammy USDM experience." - Brave Words
"Imperium finds the band incorporating new layers into their sound, and features atmospheric passages complete with synths and acoustic guitar work...While maintaining their raw approach, the album is much more polished than their early releases, and the new elements provide an interesting departure from an otherwise predictable sound." -- Exclaim
"It's inspiring to hear one of the bands that pioneered a genre almost a quarter of a century ago stretch it into new and refreshing territories." - Angry Metal Guy
