Season of Mist are proud to announce the signing of IMPUREZA. The unique Spanish death metal band will release their sophomore album worldwide later this year.
Regarding their signing, IMPUREZA comment: “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!”
For more than ten years, IMPUREZA has pioneered a unique style which combines Iberian soundscapes with a base firmly planted on death metal.
The traditional part of IMPUREZA’s musical heritage is expressed through 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 band member Esteban Martín, who are both of Spanish origin and draw inspiration from their national identity.
Esteban Martín adds his multiple vocal facets that range from death metal growling, to clean singing inspired by the gitano-legend CAMARÓN DE LA ISLA among others. In a similar way, guitarist Lionel Cano Muñoz and shifts between the aggression and power of his 7-string guitar and the intricacy of the Spanish flamenco playing. IMPUREZA also features bassist Florian Saillard on the acoustic bass guitar, live rhythm guitarist Olivier Hanoulle, and drummer Guilhem Auge.
IMPUREZA have been touring throughout Europe alongside bands such as GOJIRA, SUFFOCATION, CATTLE DECAPITATION, and BENIGHTED, as well as performed at prestigious festivals such as Hellfest, Motocultor, and Wacken Open Air – the latter as winners of the W.O.A Metal Battle France.
2010 saw the release of the band’s first 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’.
Fast-forward to 2017, IMPUREZA are now preparing to spearhead Hispanic Extreme Metal worldwide with their forthcoming new record.
