Season of Mist sign IMPUREZA


Season of Mist are proud to announce the signing of IMPUREZA. Not counting the compilation of earlier material, the Spanish flamenco death metal extremists will release their sophomore album via Season of Mist.

Regarding their signing, IMPUREZA comment: “We are extremely proud to announce that we have inked a deal with Season of Mist, one of the most influential metal labels ever. This is a great chance to become part of the Season of Mist family and their prestigious roster including such favourite of ours as MAYHEM, ABBATH, ROTTING CHRIST, BENIGHTED, INQUISITION, SHINING to name but a few. We greatly thank them for the trust that they are giving our project. This is a huge opportunity for us to introduce our cultural roots and musical concept in the beautiful language of ‘Don Quixote’ author Cervantes to the world!”

Founded in 2004, IMPUREZA are playing Hispanic Extreme Metal. For more than ten years, the French-Spanish band has been pioneering their unique style, which combines Iberian soundscapes with a solid base of death metal.

The traditional part of their musical heritage is expressed through means such as the use of acoustic folk guitars, flamenco rhythm patterns, and exclusively Spanish lyrics. This concept derives from the interest of founding member Lionel Cano Muñoz and his “compañero” Esteban Martín, who are both of Spanish origin and draw inspiration from their identity.

Esteban Martín adds his multiple vocal facets that range from death metal growling to clean singing inspired by the sadly late gitano-legend CAMARÓN DE LA ISLA among others. In a similar way, Lionel Cano Muñoz shifts between the aggression and power of his 7-string electric guitar and the intricacy of the Spanish flamenco guitar. This is backed up by Florian Saillard, who complements the electric string section with his 6-string bass and the flamenco parts with an acoustic bass guitar. Even more string power is added live by rhythm guitarist Olivier Hanoulle. Last but not least, drummer Guilhem Auge is perfectly complementing the band with his unique rhythm patterns and Hispanic groove.

IMPUREZA have been amused to find the nickname “French Nile” being attached to them at times for combining the ferocity of death metal with “exotic” sounds. The band’s influences range from BEHEMOTH and MORBID ANGEL to PACO DE LUCÍA.

The Spanish-French outfit quickly gained a reputation of an excellent live act, which was well earned by capturing audiences across Europe alongside acts such as GOJIRA, SUFFOCATION, CATTLE DECAPITATION, and BENIGHTED as well as performing at prestigious festivals such as Hellfest, Motocultor, and Wacken Open Air – the latter as winners of the W.O.A Metal Battle France.

IMPUREZA first created a buzz within the underground metal scene by the release of three demos ‘Y Correra Tu Sangre’ (2005), ‘Ruina De La Penitencia’  (2006), and ‘En El Desierto De La Creencia’ (2007) – all of which were compiled under the heading ‘Inquisition Demos’ in 2007 – as well as two split-contributions on the ‘Tworzenia, Resurrezione, Démence’ (2006) and ‘Reincremation’ (2007) samplers. These prepared the ground for the band’s acclaimed debut full-length ‘La Iglesia Del Odio’ (2010), which considerably widened their international following – a trend that continued with the following 2013 EP ‘El Nuevo Reino De Los Ahorcados / Leyenda Negra’.

Taking their time to refine their self-developed, unique style and to come to terms with several changes in the line-up, IMPUREZA are now preparing to spearhead Hispanic Extreme Metal worldwide. The Spanish metal conquistadors will release their sophomore album via Season of Mist. Watch this space for more news soon.

Line-up
Esteban Martín: all vocals
Lionel Cano Muñoz: rhythm, lead, and Spanish guitars
Olivier Hanoulle: rhythm guitar
Florian Saillard: fretless bass
Guilhem Auge: drums
