IMPALERS – demo 7”

Details: Normally I’m not a fan of pressing demos to vinyl, but this is certainly an exception. These chaps are from Austin and play some ripping metal-tinged D-beat. The vocals have a cool, tunnel-y echo effect and the riffs are bona fide (although a couple of the solos are a bit over indulgent). You need solid guitar work in bands like this; otherwise the songs can be super-generic and instantly forgettable. Luckily, these guys can really shred. I’m stoked to see this band at Chaos in Tejas and am expecting that their live show will meet, if not exceed, the ardent nature of this records. Highly recommended for everyone, not just genre fans.
