Everything is awfully giant in the new 3rd full length from these 3-piece
of furies. A sort of professional hyperaggressive thrash/death/black/grind
metal makes them conquer the title of extremest act from Asia, with
a pretty high songwriting quality, who're based upon a most rapid rhythmic
section stretched to the maximum through ferocious vocals, sometimes
death metal (-effected); by the way, the production at Sweden's Berno
studios with Henrik Larsson stands in balance bewteen clearity of all
instruments and the right proportion of roughness. Yeah, we got downtuned,
crushing and sometimes chunky guitar sounds, still never rotten.
To give you a pale idea of the killer blend we're in front of, just
mix Impaled Nazarene with Krisiun, Angelcorpse, Devourment, Darkane
and, in a minor way, Dying Fetus. Isn't that stunning!
I really like the strangling pace of the nervous and - of course - highly
fast incredible drum parts, which sometimes go on machine-gunning when
all of the other instruments and the voice suddenly often stop (just
take "Christfuckingchrist", "Wardaemonic Overkill"
and "Bloodred Angelshred" as the plainest examples
of what I'm saying).
While "Apokalyptik Nuklear Battlebeasts" introduces
itself as the closest song to the canons of black metal, "Wardaemonic
Overkill" shows marvellous all-wiping out riffs, and "Atomic
Wrath of Azzazzel" begins in a catchy way, but after half
a minute we start again being run over by Impiety's exaggerated assault
metal, being thrown upside down at the end of the track by a hellish
summoning, Hellhammer-styled passages and, one more time, great guitar
stabs. Every time I listen to this track I feel I'm listening to the
best of the 8 here included (10 if you have a copy of the limited digipack,
released with a different artwork cover as shown above, or one of the
500 copies of the vynil, that is to say also featuring Sextrash's cover
version "Black Church" and the legendary Blasphemy's
cover version "Goddess of Perversity").
You wanna give a soundtrack for some 20 tank dozers? Then pulverize
and incapacitate thousands of goddamned moronic Islamic fundamentalists
with "Bestial Genocide Goatvomit" or, if you prefer,
"Abominate, Fornicate, Desecrate".
The finishing stroke is perpetrated by the title-track, which makes
me understand Impiety've found new ideas and methods to quite be extreme.
Usually I don't give such high marks for free, but this time 95/100
is wholly deserved.
The future of brutal metal lies in the hands of Impiety, so if you're
amongst those buying only 3/4 records a year, then needless to say "Kaos
Kommand 696" is a must have for every respectful death/black
