Australia's black and death metal legions respectively known as Impious Baptism are truly sadistic and wickedly sick in their old school mixture of black/death metal. I love the fact these guys play with a lot of conviction and disgust, whereby tearing off your ears and head with their relentless sonic brutality. With influences from early Morbid Angel (Altars Of Madness) to the likes of Bestial Warlust and even Sadistic Execution, the latter of both groups from Australia.
Will Impious Baptism move mountains with their music, most likely not as this was done and perfected 20 years ago. Originality does not matter here because at the end of the day it is about darkness and the evil spirits this style of metal conjures up. With almost 45 minutes worth of music here, you'll definitely be thrown around by the ungodly musical forces their songs throw at you.
I thought these guys were good, however, most of their guitar rhythms, drum assaults and the raspy/growls vocals were borrowed from earlier masters of death metal and black metal as mentioned above. However, this should appeal to fans of rehashed extreme, old school death and blackened metal. [Hells Headbangers]
