IMPIETY “The Impious Crusade”

“The Impious Crusade”
(Hells Headbangers)
I remember the first time I heard IMPIETY. It was on a 7” released by some microscopic Dutch label way back in the 90s. I was pretty impressed with what I heard and for a while I followed the progress of the band but somehow we got lost and I took a different route. I’ve heard a track or two here and there but this is really the first time in a very long while that we have the opportunity to meet for a longer session, even though this is just a MCD. Whenever I’ve returned to IMPIETY it feels like I’ve never been back. A thing that could be negative but like with AC/DC it is a strength. You know what you’ll get and you don’t have to ever worry that they’ll go loco on you. Which doesn’t really explain the ABBA song (the Sorcery one I get) that is tucked away at the end of this record (must be a joke and a huge mistake). As a Swede I like ABBA (who doesn’t) but to find it on an extreme metal record. Didn’t see that one coming. A really cool tie-over until we get a new full length album. Anders Ekdahl
