Oakland, California's demented, maniacal surgeons known as IMPALED have been holed up in the studio the past month recording their highly anticipated Century Media debut offering and plan to emerge with their most outlandish work to date. Their new album, "Death After Life", shows the Bay Area unit in their most vile state, so expect nothing but sheer putrid insanity.
Sean McGrath (vocals, guitars) checked in with the follow studio report: "Contrary to what you've heard about us isolating ourselves in hermetically sealed rooms, saving jars of our own urine and refusing to cut our fingernails, we've been busy the last few weeks recording 'Death After Life', the new IMPALED album. With our new guitarist and all around nice guy Jason Kocol (MADERA ROAD, PUNY HUMANS, QOQOL, SLAUGHTERHOUSE FLIES) in tow, we entered Take Root studios in San Francisco on May 7 to begin recording what will no doubt be a turning point for music and dare I say, humanity as a whole. Trey Spruance (SECRET CHIEFS 3, MR. BUNGLE) is producing it and Billy Anderson (CATHEDRAL, MR. BUNGLE, L7, SLEEP, and many others on his long list of credits) is handling the engineering duties.
"After many sleep-deprived nights we're finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. We're finished recording all the music and vocals and Trey is now isolated in a hermetically sealed room mixing the album amongst jars of his own urine. It should be about a week or so until it's done, depending on how easy it is for him to use his keyboard with fingernails that have grown to more than six inches in length. Upon completion we will deliver it to Century Media in a Brinks Truck surrounded by armed guards, but it'll be awhile before those of you who want to hear it can. Maybe if you beg we'll put a track up on the website. MAYBE. You have been warned."
