Impaler - Rise Of The Mutants/If We Had Brains...We'd Be Dangerous

IMPALER - sounds like Death Metal of the brutal kind, right? Well, that's not exactly it, but what it actually is, I am not sure of either... OK, I'll let you in on a few details.

IMPALER call themselves "Shock Rock" and put together a very crude mixture from Punk, Rock and Metal, which is nothing, not Punk, not Rock, not Metal and even more so - not good!

This here are documents of their beginnings at the beginning of the Eighties, but when you listen to their new album "One Nation Under Ground", then IMPALER have gotten stuck in the absolute beginnings of their evolution (OK, you better shouldn't use this word as far as IMPALER are concerned).

Save the money, it would be a real waste...
