IMPIETY “Worshippers Of The Seventh Tyranny”

Release Date: January, 2011

Label: Agonia Records

We know them and we love them. For 20 years, IMPIETY from exotic Singapore with mainman Mohammad Abdul Ariffen Deen or simply Shyaithan, hand one-piece, brutal black/death mercilessly attacking our ears. After the leader of the band changed the rest of his team, he put forward the ambitious project, namely the new full-length “Worshippers Of The Seventh Tyranny”, which consists of a single track with a duration of slightly more than 38 minutes!

“He’s out of his mind!” one would say (and probably he’d be right), but the composition proves remarkably solid and hard as steel. Throughout its duration “Worshippers…” impresses with its skillfull moving across sub-genres of extreme sound. Inside this musical piece you get fast blackthrashing metal in the veins of BLACK WITCHERY and DESTROYER 666, war-like marching death metal (BOLT THROWER surely mean something to you), but also swampy doom/death straight from the early 90s. Specifically, the can’t-get-slower part at about half-point of the song, surely aims to crush bones. And if all this music seems an odd mix to you (it shouldn’t though), please note that the result is sufficiently consistent, assisted by the notable, dry production.

Undoubtedly, “Worshippers…” requires the attention of the listener, since it is not easy listening, mainly because of the duration. But it rewards with great, harsh music those who choose to stay with it until the end. And the concept has to do with nuclear devastation accompanied by a booklet with lyrics and great artwork, making the package absolutely complete. Rush towards it without fear.
