Impiety

Impiety is a Singaporean black/death/thrash metal band, formed in early 1990 by Shyaithan and drummer Necro-Angelfornicator. They are notable for being one of the first extreme metal bands to emerge from Singapore, including releasing records on notable Western record labels. Originally heavily influenced by the likes of Venom, Hellhammer, Sarcófago, Possessed, Destruction, Bathory and early Morbid Angel.

The band have released a split 7″ EP “Unholy Masters of Darkness” with Paul Ledney’s US group Profanatica, through US label Samhain Records in 1999 and “Two Majesties” split EP with Thai act Surrender of Divinity in 2004. They recorded the eight tracks of their fourth album, Paramount Evil, at Ambox Studios in 2004. Reception was positive and further touring ensued, including the nine-date Mexican Assault Tour in August 2004 and a five-date Asian Desecration Tour during December 2004-January 2005. In 2007, they  released the Tormentors of Tijuana live album on Japan’s cult Heavy Metal Super Star Records and the studio effort Formidonis Nex Cultus, once again for Agonia.
