Originally released in 1996. Now reissued by Greyhaze Records.Brazilian black metal Combining the speed of grindcore, the hardness and grit of first wave death metal, and the evil of early black metal (such as Mayhem – Deathcrush), "Into the ritual chamber" showcases Impurity’s unique take on extreme metal in its rawest, most unrefined form. This is an undeniable classic. The vocals are heavily influenced by the old school black metal style, fast-paced grunts and snarls that will remind the listener of Blasphemy, Beherit and why not Marduk; however there is also a bit of a more typical black metal rasp to them. The lyrics are the best kind of black metal lyrics, songs about genocide and satanic rites. Impurity is not to be missed, this album is still a great offering that not only rises above nearly every black metal album, EP or demo released back in the 90's, but its influence can be heard in nearly any black metal album these days. Instead of thinking like everyone else seems to “Wow, I wish I could find another band like Beherit/Demoncy/whoever,” you need to check the brazilian bands first. This is pure evil !
