IMPIETY (Singapore) 
Skullfucking Armageddon
Dies Irae Productions, 1999
S.E.A. extreme black metal terrorist are back their most wicked album ever. After hearing some sound samples from their website prior to the release of this CD, I was hoping that this album can outcome the previous cassette EP, Funeralight... because from listening to the samples it can and it does ! Funeralight... already top out their debut Asateerul Awaleen, so rationally, can you think how great and barbaric Skullfucking Armageddon are. This time, IMPIETY has add more speed, fast drum attack even to the re-recorded tracks from the EP. You will not hear even a single second to 'relax' your ear, all songs are really torment to your ears (in a positive way, that is). Some thrash also can be hear but not too retro (except for Shyaithan vocal) like most of the band now who are trying to copy what Kreator have done like Torment In Fire for example. IMPIETY is still stick to what they have started since the beginning while some of their compatriots either lost the will to fight or change to a totally different concept. The songs in this album and the track title like Skullfucked : The Speed Metal Hell, Ironflames Of Hate, Diabolical Witching Aggression proved it. But after hearing it many times, I still love Funeralight... more than this CD though. Musicwise, Funeralight... is more black and wicked but this one is speed thrash/black. The music, vocal are different. Rating Skullfucking Armageddon in all IMPIETY, it will be put in the second place after Funeralight... . Yes it will earn 6 out of 5. This CD is released in limited digiHellpak edition. A cool one too. Get it before it run out of sale.

PROFANATICA / IMPIETY 
(USA / Singapore)
Split 7" EP
Samhain Records, 1999

A limited of 400 red vinyl and unfortunately I bought the red one instead of the limited 100 copies in gold vinyl ! No need to introduce these bands as they are 2 most wicked band around and everyone who are into black/death metal should know about them and heard of their previous releases. This is not the resurrection of PROFANATICA as they are dead long time ago and here you will only hear their reh and demo songs. Just plain raw black/death, in their trademark that is. While IMPIETY side feature the song Dragonoath Diabolus, originally appeared in "Funeralight..". Cassette EP release by a Malaysian label a while ago.  That EP was a cult release for me. Pity for those who haven't yet heard it.

Impiety - Skullfucking Armageddon (Europe Version)

IMPIETY (Singapore)
Skullfucking Armageddon
Drakkar Productions, 2000

I don't know what is going on with Impiety and their label but I hope everything will be solved and come to a happy ending. I reviewed this album last time, but this one is the French edition. More artwork from Desmond Sia available in this release, but the booklet design does not top out the luxurious digipak version. What will make this a great purchase are the extra songs in it. 1 song from "Funeralight..." EP and songs from "Salve The Goat" EP. So here you will hear how they progress all these years. I still like "Funeralight...' though. For those haven't yet heard the now sold-out cassette EP, listen to this CD or get the limited edition of Impiety/Profanatica Split EP release by Samhain Records.

IMPIETY (Singapore)
Kaos Kommand 696
Osmose, 2002

If you think "Skullfucking Armageddon" is their most brutal release, then think again. The statement in the press release "Most extreme black/death metal band from Asia! Unchallenged to date!" is not just a marketing strategy but that's the truth. I don't know what to say if the next album goes beyond "Kaos Kommand 696" which I know IMPIETY will not sacrifice their style and slowing down the music. Never! 8 tracks of…what should I call it?… black atomic warmetal? The digipak and LP version will have 2 extra tracks. I am now hoping for all the three versions to be able to pass through Kastam Malaysia.
