IMPIETY is an established and well-known band into the most underground extreme Metal, as it has a long and successful career; they’ve managed been respected with huge and brutal albums, both studio or live albums. After their previous studio record named “Terroreign (Apocalyptic Armageddon Command” and with their annihilating live “Tormentors in Nagoya”, they’re back on track with an EP entitled “Advent of the Nuclear Baphomet”, which is the best appetizer for their new, and terrific as well, “Worshippers of the Seventh Tyranny”.
This time we’re going to talk about the aforementioned EP which contains 3 tracks that capture the whole IMPIETY’s essence. With razor-edged and fast guitar riffs, overwhelming drum beats and a rough voice that seems to come from the underworld these tracks are bullets directly from the machine gun from Singapur. The 3 songs have a considerable length (two 6 minutes tracks and one 8 minute track) where we can find fast passages and as well some moments where we can have a rest and which aren’t regular at all. Guitars are the outstanding element, with several great solos and riffs that combine like a charm with a double pedal drumming which pierces your brain without mercy.
Production is what this genre needs or, so to speak, not clean nor completely rough. Of these 3 songs, “Ave Satanas” could stand out, though the others are as well of huge quality.
Being briefly, “Advent Of…” is a really great EP from a great band with an almost completely renewed line-up and whom with their new full-length, “Worshippers of the Seventh Tyranny”, bode keep on bursting our eardums without pity.
