HardTimes.ca conducted an interview with California-based Christian death metallers IMPENDING DOOM on March 11, 2009 when the band made a stop in Montreal, Quebec during its Canadian tour with BLEEDING THROUGH, THE ACACIA STRAIN and AS BLOOD RUNS BLACK. Watch the 11-minute chat below.
IMPENDING DOOM will film a new music video on Sunday, April 5 in Orange County, California. The band says, "We're looking for 125 fans to be a part of it. You must be at least 18 with proof of ID. If you are interested, e-mail [email protected] with your name and contact info. Time, location and more details will be e-mailed back to you as soon as we get them."
IMPENDING DOOM's new album, "The Serpent Servant", was recorded at Lambesis Studios in San Diego with Tim Lambesis and Daniel Castleman (AS I LAY DYING, WAR OF AGES, WINDS OF PLAGUE) and was released today (March 31) through Facedown Records. It was mixed and mastered by Zeuss (HATEBREED, SHADOWS FALL, TERROR).
"We've broken down the musical boundaries for this album," guitarist Manny Contreras previously said. "We're just playing what we love and bringing together several different genres while staying true to who we are as a band."
IMPENDING DOOM's debut album, "Nailed. Dead. Risen.", was released in September 2007 via Facedown Records.
IMPENDING DOOM refers to its style of Christian metal as "gorship" — a portmanteau of gore and worship. The band also clarify on their MySpace blog that "gorship" is their way of worshipping God through their gore-sounding music; not worshipping "gore" as some are led to believe.
