Impiety are a band from Singapore that h as been featured before in this zine with a musical style on this recording I would describe as being black/war/thrash metal and this is a review of their 2013 ep "The Impious Crusade" which was released by Hell Headbangers.
"Prelude)Arrival Of The Assassins" starts off with some evil guitar riffing which leads to drums and heavy guitar riffs which in return leads to a powerful guitar solo before going back into the rhythm's which sets up the pace for the blackened death metal growls also also keeping the solo's.
"Commanding Death And Destroy" starts off with heavy war metal guitar riffs which leads to the screams before going into a faster direction and after awhile death metal guitar solos make their presence known in the song before heading back into the rhythm's which start mixing in more old school death influences while also keeping the solos around and as the song moves on their are more mid paced sections.
"Accelerate The Annihilation" starts off with some death metal riffing before the drums and screams kick in which leads to a faster direction with blast beats and also switching back and forth between mid paced and fast sections and after awhile guitar solos make their way into the song.
"The Impious Crusade" starts off with fast and heavy guitar playing and screams before going into a faster direction and mixing in some brutal sounding blast beats and as the song moves on the riffs get more diverse and also mix in brief guitar leads while remaining heavy and brutal as well as mixing in some death metal style mid paced sections.
"Lucifer's Legion" starts off with noise and evil s creams before going into a fast black.thrash metal direction with the guitars and blast beats which also mix in death metal elements in the ryhthms and leads.
"Super Trooper" starts off with Asian style clean singing female vocals before adding in bass, drums and synths while also retaining the vocals and I think this song must off only been put on the album for comic relief considering the band's history, albums as well as the rest off the songs that are present on the recording.
Lyrics on the recording cover war and Luciferian themes, while the production has a very heavy, raw and primitive sound with the bass playing being mixed down low in the mix.
In my opinion this is another great recording recording from Impiety and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out t his ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Commanding Death And Destroy" and "Lucifer's Legion". RECOMMENDED BUY.
