Album Review: IMPERIAL SAVAGERY - Imperial Savagery

Title: Imperial Savagery
Record Label: Independent
FB: Imperial Savagery

Reviewed by: Dave Wolff
Date: May 2014

Imperial Savagery is brutal death metal in a semi-vein of traditional Morbid Angel, with deeper vocals and briefer time frames. This last aspect of their musicianship makes for a tighter series of progressions jammed into a two to three minute space. This in turn provides a greater sense of having your consciousness assaulted as each progression launches a new offensive immediately on the heels of the last. Almost before you’re aware of what’s happening the next song wastes no time to unravel you all over again. The longest track on the band’s self-titled full length is just under four minutes; the shortest just under two. All this consolidated songwriting will have you checking this album out several times to fully experience the technical aggression, relentless blast and interesting tempo changes they’re capable of. And nothing here is overdone or excessively long so you won’t grow bored with each successive listening session. This album was released independently by the band and is available for streaming and purchase at Bandcamp (see the above address to find it directly). Contact them through their Facebook page for information.
