||The classic sound of death metal with the
unholy cries of black metal, combined together to form Impending Doom's
third full length CD entitled "Apocalypse III - The Manifested
Purgatorium." While listening to this disk it reminded me of
the sound of the early days of both black and death metal, classic
in everyone form. A very good mix of the two genres. The nine tracks
take you through the minds of the German band for over thirty-four
minutes. My favorite tracks include "Burn The House Of God,"
"Revocation Of Creation," "Atone For Your Mistake,"
"Frozen Empire," and "Where Sinners Bleed." Throughout
the CD the riffs an the cries tell you why Impending Doom isn't your
typical black and death metal band. Some of the riffing could make
the mosh pits start in the middle of the Vatican. This CD should show
you that this band has dimension and hopefully a promising future.
