Impasse is another powerful melodic death metal band I have discovered through Metalhead Community Blog submissions about a month ago with this very song; Augmented Perception, off from their debut EP; Impasse, which was released in 2018. Impasse is surely making a big difference with their ideas in their music, sound quality, harmony, and professionalism, especially as an upcoming band. This EP is just their debut and we usually don’t expect to hear these advanced standards from new bands. In this matter, they have beaten many of their competitors and making the statement about how committed they are to what they do the best. They certainly have got great potential where you can see by looking closely to their advanced musicianship skills, instrumentation, composition, and the sound.
The song has a super dark moody atmosphere that immediately catches the full attention of the listener. It was their dark vibe who got mine to be honest. This song is not just a simple death metal song. There are much more than that. The composition is complex and unpredictable. The excitement is always at the top level, where you can always expect to be surprised such as we have experienced the same feeling by the greatest progressive black metal of all time; Opeth. In my book, this is a very serious compliment. Impasse is also showing similar potential with what they have done in Augmented Perception.
