Preceding their upcoming descent upon the shores of Europe, Oakland, California-based extreme metallers IMPALED have unleashed a new video onslaught. Culling from its latest album for Willowtip Records/Candlelight UK, "The Last Gasp", the band has self-produced a cinematic abortion for the song "G.O.R.E."
"Heading to the Old World this summer for our second European tour, we wanted to celebrate, via film and song, the true achievements of Western idealism," says bassist Ross Sewage. "Namely, conquest, war, mechanized death, and endless, bloody reams of mellifluent 'G.O.R.E.'"
Edited by guitarist Jason Kocol along with drummer Raul Varela through his Evil Morgue Entertainment video company, the video features production work done entirely by bandmembers along with some live footage by Kill That Cat Productions. Varela adds, "Despite a low, DIY budget and rigging our own shots and cameras, everyone in IMPALED pulled together valiantly and we were able to puke this together right before going on tour and are happy with the entrail result."
The band has made the video available online through popular streaming sites, such as YouTube and MySpace, as well downloadable versions on their web site for portable video players and smart phones.

IMPALED will be seen this year at the 2008 Maryland Deathfest, followed by a tour of Europe in June with ORIGIN and HOUR OF PENANCE.
