Rated 4.33/5 (86.67%) (15 Votes)

I liked the last Impiety album I heard (Terroreign), though I seem to have missed their most recent full-length, which is kind of annoying. I get this instead, a new EP by a band that seems to love them. If you are familiar with Impiety, then you know to expect to get your face ripped off by blasting riff-crazy speed and wrath, but this one does somewhat less with the face-ripping.

For one, the recording kind of bites. The guitars are a bit weak and the drum sound is flat and fake-sounding. The vocals are iffy here, as the regular old raw throated rasp is just fine, but sometimes trades out for a more ‘spoken' kind of style that calls to mind Suicidal Tendencies or something – kind of annoying. The riffs here are pretty strong, but the songwriting is a bit jerky and lacks cohesion. It keeps stopping to jazz around with bad leads or drum fills instead of just raging away. I can understand the band wanting to do something a little different, but this doesn't really work.
