California metal vets IMPENDING DOOM have dropped a new music video today, this time for their track “Paved With Bones.” The video was directed by J.D. Butler and shot at the band’s recent sold-out album release show at Chain Reaction in Anaheim, CA. The band comments:
“We wanted to have an event in our hometown where fans could come to the show early, hear our entire new record before the rest of the world does, and shoot a music video. Chain Reaction was the perfect place, it’s where we all grew up playing and makes for an intense show with being all crammed into a somewhat small space and getting rowdy with our fans!“
IMPENDING DOOM released their sixth studio LP, The Sin and Doom Vol. II on June 22, 2018, via Entertainment One (eOne). The new album is the widely anticipated follow up to Death Will Reign (2013), which sold 4,300 copies its first week of release and debuted at 116 on the Billboard Top 200 Chart.
IMPENDING DOOM commissioned artist Colin Marks (Fleshgod Apocalypse / Whitechapel) to do the cover art for the latest release. Marks had also done the artwork for The Serpent Servant (2009).
Impending Doom arise once again from where they began, their own alpha and omega as a band, crafting the sixth album as punishing, focused, bottom-heavy, and musically blood-soaked as the earliest efforts that first won them notice before any notions of commerce beckoned them toward the more commonplace career path of the metal music industry.
They’ve worked with top-tier genre producers in the past, including Zeuss (Rob Zombie, Hatebreed, Queensrÿche) and Will Putney (Every Time I Die, The Amity Affliction, Thy Art Is Murder), but for album number six, they’ve returned to the grassroots and hands-on way they engineered and produced their earliest recordings, cloaking it in grimy sonic mysteries anew. Christopher Eck, who produced their first album, oversaw the proceedings once again.
This is musical blunt force trauma, from a personal place of desperate salvation and resolve. No competition, no compromise, no careerism. Impending Doom are renewed, purer than ever, united in their collective vision to create the heaviest metal missives imaginable.
