Editorial Reviews

Impending Doom took the metal and hardcore world by storm in September of 2007 with the release of their debut album Nailed. Dead. Risen . Since then, the band has scanned over 20,000 copies of that album and toured alongside of Unearth, Bleeding Through, Acacia Strain, Whitechapel, Emmure, As Blood Runs Black, and many more. They have also headlined Scream The Prayer tour, Facedown Fest, and Cornerstone Festival s Underground Stage. The new album The Serpent Servant is a crushing & heavy evolution of Impending Doom that was recorded at Lambesis Studios with Daniel Castleman (As I Lay Dying, Winds Of Plague) and mixed & mastered by Zeuss at Planet Z studios (Shadows Fall, Hatebreed, Whitechapel). 2009 will be the year of Impending Doom!

Customer Reviews

A must have for Deathcore/ Brutal Death Metal fans.
Zachary Desroches
I understand nowadays that metal bands are doing the whole "we didn't want to write the same album twice" thing, which is something I 100% agree with.
Ryan Farwell
Personally not my favorite of their albums, but non the less still good, to each his own.

Plain and simple, it really does grow on you. After my first and second listen, I agreed with the other reviewers about it being boring. But today I went through my 3 recently purchased CDs, this being one of them, and I liked it a lot more the third time. Its a very different sound from Nailed. Dead. Risen. They DID drop some of my favorite things about this genre, and I think it isn't very safe to call this one Deathcore. But that doesn't mean its terrible. I agree that it is a little generic, but I think its a very solid album. If you give it a chance, you might come back to it.

Impending Doom completely floored me with this release. I had heard the singles "Serpent Servant" and "anything Goes" a while back and was so excited for this release. In my opinion it's a massive improvement from Nailed. Dead. Risen., but don't get me wrong, I love that album too, but this album, although still as brutal as it gets, is now audible too. They've kind of developed a WhiteChapel-esque sound, but they actually have a positive message in their songs. A must have for Deathcore/ Brutal Death Metal fans.

Impending Doom is one of the most interesting death metal/deathcore/metalcore bands in the industry today. They're devout Christians, as can be seen through their lyrics, imagery, and testimonials, a fact that is almost non-existent in the genre of music that they play in (at least when speaking on a broad scale of popularity). Death metal, or the genres that fall beneath it are generally not known for Christian themes or bands, but somehow Impending Doom has risen to popularity despite these trends.

That being said, let's get to the album. Their first album, Nailed. Dead. Risen., was an interesting release to say the least, certainly not putting off a sound to appeal to the masses. Yet, with this rough and unpolished release they garnered broad attention from Christians and death metal fans alike with their brutal sound and unapologetic lyrics. I first found them right after they had released Nailed. Dead. Risen., and was not initially fond of the sound to be completely honest. But alas, the sound grew on me, and I eventually fell in love with the band, leading me to go to two of their live shows and speak with some of the band members personally. They are wonderful people, and strong Christians, and I was overjoyed at these facts. So needless to say, this new album was certainly one of my most anticipated albums in a long time.

The new album has a MUCH more refined sound, quality, and cohesiveness, but with these steps forward come a few steps back. I love metal, death metal, hardcore, and much more, and anyone who knows these genres, more likely than not, has a love for breakdowns to some extent. What I'm getting at is that Impending Doom has gone the way of popularity here and gotten a bit breakdown happy.

is the honesty in their lyrics. These guys love God, and want to make a loud noise for Christ. Deathcore at its finest, this is a rockin' c.d.

They have some brutal merch as well, you should check it out.

WORSHIP+THE SERPENT SERVANT=GORSHIP!

Deathcore, metalcore, grind, hardcore... Whatever you choose to label "Impending Doom" they're certainly awesome. I'll be the first to admit, bits of this album REALLY remind of "Plagues" by The Devil Wears Prada, (who is actually one of my favorite bands.) However, "Impending Doom" definitely takes the heavier stance and is completely devoid of clean singing and/or synths. (Take that as a warning, if you don't want to be pummeled with 40 minutes of bellowing, blasting and riffage... this album is not for you.) All of that being said, there is a distinctly melodic voice in all of this craziness that really stands out on most tracks. "Anything Goes" is a great example of a gothic melody layered over the top of crunchy guitar chords with a huge percussive foundation of growling and double bass drumming.

I don't have any reservations in recommending this album to even the most skeptical death metal fans! I'd also like to point out (to any concerned parents or guardians) that this album may be titled and illustrated quite darkly, but is actually a very positive album. There is nothing lyrically that will affect teenagers negatively... The band is Christian, so that pretty much steers the entire album to a very clean and positive place.

I'D ALSO RECOMMEND
Out of Darkness-In The Midst of Lions
The Infinite Order-Living Sacrifice
Plagues-The Devil Wears Prada
The Raven and the Reaping-The Famine
O God, The Aftermath-Norma Jean

I can't believe how many people who have written reviews don't like this album. It is so heavy! I am an avid death metal/core fan. I love everyone from Nile to Whitechapel and Malevolent Creation to Oceano. I get pretty much every death metal album when it comes out, and I have listened to The Serpent Servant more than any other in a long time. The guitars are tuned LOW and the vocalist is top-notch. The songs vary between slow-paced breakdowns to mid-paced chugging to full-on blastbeats. If you are a death metal purist, I can understand you not liking this album because it is definitely deathcore, but if you like hardcore or deathcore, or are a death metal fan open to the 'core,' this album should please you immensely.
