Sacrilegious Impalement are a band from Finland that has been featured before in this zine and plays a very raw, satanic and misanthropic form of black metal and this is a review of their 2015 compilation album "First three Nails" which was released as a joint effort between Satanath Records, Black Plague Records and Desert Of Death.
A very heavy, raw and melodic sound starts off the album and starts heading for more of a raw black metal direction along with some deep grim screams that also gets very high pitched at times and when the music speeds up a great amount of blast beats are utilized and the music is very heavily rooted in the mid 90's second wave style.
Throughout the recording you can hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and some of the tracks are very long and epic in length and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and the band also shows a great amount of progression as musicians on the more current tracks on the compilation and one songs only uses a brief use of guitar leads while also remaining heavy throughout the whole recording with no soft or clean parts ever being utilized.
Sacrilegious Impalement plays a very misanthropic style of black metal throughout this compilation bringing in a great amount of raw aggression while also showing they are very talented as musicians, the production sounds very powerful while the lyrics cover destruction, misanthropy, Satanism and death themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Sacrilegious Impalement and if you are a fan of raw, misanthropic and satanic black metal, you should check out this compilation. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Total Annihilation" 'Sacrilegious Impalement" "Eternal Agonies" and "Behead the Infants Of God". 8 out of 10.
