All over the world there are bands seeking to play the fastest music possible and there is no shortage of entities jumping into the worldwide competition to see who will survive. Many bands are forgotten. This technical brutal death metal from Topeka, Kansas, U.S. was probably in some people’s minds all finished and long gone. The previous album Unmercifully Beaten is from 2006, but they have returned with recorded output to show their wares to the hungry masses yearning to travel the soundwaves of inhumanly frenzied music. The new album is called Ravenous Impulse and is devoted exclusively to the art of making music that takes it to the end of the line. What is there beyond Unmerciful? Nobody knows because human beings so far have not been able to play much faster than this style. The band features current and former members of the big dog of Topeka, Kansas technical brutality: Origin.
This publication has recently reported about Unmerciful’s return to action, but now you don’t have to read about it, listen to the complete recording with your own ears. Just understand that you have to be mentally ready for this. You either keep up or the warp speed will leave you behind lost in space.
OFFICIAL: UNMERCIFUL - which unites the extreme metal ingenuity of bassist Jeremy Turner (ex-Origin), guitarists Justin Payne and Clint Appelhanz (ex-Origin), drummer John Lonstreth (Dim Mak, Origin, ex-Gorguts etc.), and vocalist Kris Bolton (D.F.W.B.) - unleashes the sonic brutality of their Ravenous Impulse full-length via Unique Leader Records. Captured at Appelhanz's own Waveworks Studio with drums recorded at Chapman Studios (Origin, Tech N9NE) with longtime producer and friend, Robert Rebeck, Ravenous Impulse raises the proverbial bar of inexorable, unsparing, belligerent, and plainly vicious death metal.
Founded in 2001, UNMERCIFUL released its debut, Unmercifully Beaten, in 2006. With intensive tour runs from 2006 through 2009 with the likes of Cannibal Corpse, Dying Fetus, Necrophagist, Decrepit Birth, Cryptopsy, and more, the band went through various personnel changes before deciding to disband in 2009. What started out as just a reunion show in 2012, quickly returned the band to working status. With consistent live shows and numerous metal fest appearances, the band released a self-titled demo in 2014 as a first step in the process to completing its first full-length release in nearly a decade. After the abrupt departure of drummer James King, John Longstreth was enlisted to record drums for Ravenous Impulse.
