First Impressions: Impending Doom – The Serpent Servant

Impending Doom is back and this time, they’re gunning for that number one spot! This was both a shock and relief to me as anyone who has followed UTG from the beginning would know, Nailed. Dead. Risen., the band’s first release, got a ridiculously low score with us. In fact, it is still one of the lowest reviews we’ve given an album. So I was less than excited to hear what this self proclaimed “gorship” band would bring my way on round two. However, they’ve not only evolved, but thanks to selling over 20,000 units last time, got a real producer to help them find a much more cohesive and brutal sound. The heaviness is still there, but more mature and actually accessible to many, many more people than the initial release. Some early adopters may hate the new sound, but those who don’t will most likely find themselves surrounded by a horde of new fans/friends. This album gives this band more than hope; it gives them promise of a much longer career than the first release ever could.
