Heart Impaled – Rotation

Wow this one just jumps right on in there and starts kicking your ass from the first note. Now that is what you need for your alarm clock! I would call this a driving pace but that doesn’t even seem to be adequate. I feel like my heart is going to explode out of my chest if I don’t get up and do something soon the energy of this track is that intense. The percussion just never lets up, I mean this guy could go toe to toe with the best drummer you can think of and then kick his ass. The guitar work blazes by so fast, I can’t for the life of me imagine playing this. It’s hard and heavy taking no prisoners or making any apologies for what it is.

Seriously, is this what a heart attack feels like? Oh my god… I feel like I should do some stretches or something so I don’t hurt any muscles. I loved it! Despite the fact that this song has no lyrics, I loved it. I can’t see how any vocalist could keep up with the musical composition any way. I need to get this song. I have to have it, it’s a moral imperative. And you should listen to it too.

Who They Are:

Continuously evolving metal act, Heart Impaled. First started by as an entirely electronic project created for the purpose of putting music to PC games in 2001. Around 2003-2004 a heavy emphasis on guitars, sampling and distortion was added to achieve a heavier tone. 2005, onward live instrumentation and the crossover into the metal genre proceeded.

Influenced by the sounds of Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Meshuggah, Anthrax, Testament, Soilwork, In Flames, Dark Tranquillity, Black label Society, White Zombie and many others. Also video game music and movie soundtracks.

My goal is to make video games based on metal albums.
And to make metal albums based on video game ideas.

To bring these multiple arts together through music. The purpose is to possibly inspire the creation of something beyond just the music itself. Books, games, animation. A plugging into a sound of hard and heavy music to inspire new media. Completely influenced by the use of hard music to blur the lines between the two and altogether create this unique genre that takes metal to this next generation of the metal fans who didn’t exactly grow up reading just about dragons and superhero comic books, but playing video games, watching movies, animation and listening to the metal.

Thank you all for the support and appreciation!
