Announce debut album!

Danish teutonic thrashers IMPALERS will begin recording their debut album, entitled POWER BEHIND THE THRONE on November 18th at SIX STRING STUDIOS. The recording will be helmed by producer SØREN JENSEN. Of the announcing of the recording at SIX STRING STUDIOS, IMPALERS guitarist and singer SØREN CRAWACK commented: “I look very much forward to record with Søren Jensen. He was one of the first people I looked at, particularly because of his work with the thrash band EVILLIVE, who recorded two of my all time favorite demos with him. Other than that, he is well regarded in the danish metal scene, for being one of the founders of the awesome death metal band CORPUS MORTALE, as well as his work in his current band SIX STRING SLAUGHTER. It’ll be a great experience, and I’m sure we’ll produce some of the fastest, heaviest, most aggressive thrash ever to come out of Denmark together.” On April 15th IMPALERS released their latest demo outing in the form of the CD A NECESSARY EVIL.

Update 15/09/2010

It's been a while since the last update, so I thought I'd let you in on what's been going on. Over the course of the summer we have been rehearsing and getting ready for a tour with Battery and Ironguard. Unfortunately that tour never became what we intended, which is also the reason why the managament we signed a deal with (as described in the last update) have all been sacked. We will however thank the people and the bands that we met and played with over the last two weeks. So thanks to Artillery, Battery, Ironguard, Altar of Oblivion, Root, Essence and Martin Impaler (Serpent Saints). We got a great respons at the gigs and we really enjoyed ourselves, so thank you! Song wise we have been writing a couple of new ones, and we will be going into the studio soon to record what will hopefully be the last Impalers demo. More on that later. We can also confirm that we will be playing at next years Metal Magic festival alongside bands such as Essence, Ironguard, Ghost, Die Hard, Necro Christos and more! That's all for now. Keep it heavy, keep it fast, keep it thrash!

Impalers signs a booking/management deal with Chris Starkey Music

Impalers have just inked a deal with danish booking/management company Chris Starkey Music. So from now on all booking inquiries should be directed to mwa.csm@gmail.com! We are very happy with this deal and we look forward to (hopefully) years of prosperity, growth and of course, friendship together.

Thrash Assault 2010 (DK) press release (in danish)

Endnu engang er Månen hjemsted for Danmarks (eneste!) 100 % pure thrash arrangement – Thrash Assault! Det er tredje år i træk arrangementet bliver holdt, og denne gang er det lykkedes at få fat i nok det største danske thrash metal band. Arrangør og Impalers sanger/guitarist, Søren Crawack har dette at sige om eventet: ”Vi er utroligt stolte over at få et så fantastisk band med som Artillery. Det er personligt et af mine absolut yndlingsbands, så jeg er naturligvis meget tilfreds. Vi håber at vi med Artillery som hovednavn, plus tre andre rigtig fede up and coming thrash bands, vil være i stand til at elevere Thrash Assault til et højere stadie i folks bevidsthed. Thrash Assault skal være årets samlingssted for thrashere i hele Danmark. Og dette er forhåbentligt et skridt i den rigtige retning.” Artillery guitarist Michael Stützer tilføjer: ”Det er med stor glæde at Artillery kommer til Haderslev for første gang nogensinde og har mulighed for at trykke den af på en ægte thrash metal festival. I øvrigt sammen med nogle af Danmarks fedeste up-coming thrash navne. Vi ser frem til at spille for metallens mest dedikerede fans!” Udover en Facebook begivenhed dedikeret til Thrash Assault, har arrangementet også fået sin egen MySpace side, hvor man kan høre nogle sange fra hvert band der spiller, samt se enkelte video klip. Udover Artillery, byder Thrash Assault også på Battery fra Aabenraa, Phantomizer fra Odense og Impalers fra Haderslev. Running order (nøjagtig tidspunkt kommer senere): Battery Phantomizer Impalers Artillery

Niklas no longer in Impalers

After over a year of thrashing, Niklas have decided to call it quits. With two other bands, and a very demanding job, Niklas just didn't have the time to give himself a hundred percent to the band. We played a final show with him last saturday, which was ironically probably also the best show we've ever played. It was a fun ride, and we will surely miss him in the band. Of course we also wish him the best of luck with his other projects (the technical death metal band Purifactor and the power metal band Ironguard), and hope our paths may cross again soon in some way or another. Cheers mate!

New song on MySpace!

After much waiting, we can finally unveil a new Impalers track on MySpace. This one comes straight off of the new demo, and is none other than the title track - Army of Darkness. We are in the talks with Ed about airing the demo in it's entirety on Thrash Unlimited Radio. An event that will coincide with the release date of the demo. More on that subject in a few days. Listen to the title track of our upcoming demo, Army of Darkness on this link: http://www.myspace.com/impalersmetal Let us know what you think!

Video Diaries!

We've just wrapped up the first of the two weekends in the studio, and so far things have been going great. Videos have been posted from each day in the forum, which reveal a lot of the upcoming songs, like Aggressor, We Are Nothing and Automaton, as well as us goofing around. Be sure to check them out! http://www.thrashunlimited.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=158&t=5306

Demo recording next week! / Update

Hello ragers! We're finally closing in on the first weekend of recording madness, for what will be our very first proper demo. A few changes have already been made regarding the demo from last time I posted an update in the news forum. The first major change is this (and this might shock some fans of the bands early material): The demo will not feature the song Vlad the Impaler. So if you haven't downloaded the previous demo from our MySpace, you will have missed it forever (however you can always contact us if you really want it). The next thing is that the demo will be available for purchase as soon as possible after all. A lot more on that at a later date. Other than that, there isn't that much to say yet. But feel free to ask questions and we'll try to answer them the best we can.
