Ever get whacked in the clavicle with a tire iron for Jesus?
Well, now you can feel the pain -- metaphorically speaking, of course -- as that's the sensation that Christian battering ram Impending Doom tends to elicit with their equally primal and pious deathcore.
Heavy as a lead crucifix, the band pummels with meat cleaver riffs and guttural vocals suggestive of a perturbed orc -- you know, as opposed to a happy orc.
Secular types fear not, for these dudes don't beat you over the heard with their beliefs.
They let their tunes do that, instead.
