Also included is an "Oddities and Rarities" section with an all-new band interview and video for the track "The Last Ride" from the CD "Habeas Corpus" among others. More information is available at this location. IMPALER recently contributed a track to the new Llyod Kaufmann film "Poultrygeist". The band's song "Dead As A Doornail" was requested by Troma Films head honcho and director Mr. Kaufmann himself. Look for the soundtrack at Tromaville.com or fine stores everywhere!!
Also on the IMPALER front, the band has a live CD on the slab for European release this year via Codiac Records. "Alive Beyond The Grave" was recorded at Star Central last summer and is IMPALER's first official live album. IMPALER was nearing the end of its set during a hometown Halloween show in Minneapolis, MN on October 27, 2006 when two guys in the crowd began taunting the group's sideshow sicko Dr. Corpse. In a matter of seconds, one of the men threw a punch at Dr. Corpse and then all hell broke loose. According to an eyewitness, "the band and their fans all joined together in teaching those two guys a lesson." A six-minute video clip capturing the entire incident has been posted online at YouTube.com. For more information, visit www.myspace.com/impalerhorrorrock.
