HELLS HEADBANGERS is proud to present IMPIETY's classic debut album, "Asateerul Awaleen," on vinyl format again. Only 300 copies pressed on red vinyl and 222 copies pressed on picture discs, both with gatefold covers and silver hotfoil.
Singapore's foremost extreme metal import, IMPIETY began in the dark, fateful days of the early '90s, and thus their debut album is a sign of the times. Back then, IMPIETY took the more goatly aspects of their early, EP-era sound and here kicked up the blitzkrieg speed immensely, harshing out the production in a more blizzard-like aspect not unlike their Norwegian contemporaries. What resulted on "Asateerul Awaleen" is a unique synthesis of north and south, frost and fire, of nuclear barbarism and icy majesty.
A corrosive mix of death, doom, psychedelia, and black metal, the Portland quartet’s debut full-length is a bona fide underground monolith that shapeshifts with each listen, all while maintaining its essential heaviness. Bandcamp Album of the Day Feb 1, 2019
