IMPACT - DEBUT OFFERING TAKES FLIGHT WITH FURTHER TOUR DATES TO BE ANNOUNCED!
Sturdy UK Hardcore crew ‘Impact’ hurl out their impressive debut EP ‘Strength Through Loyalty’ for national consumption on 20th June 2011 and tour throughout Europe this summer.
Formed back in 2001 during their mid teens, the original members of Impact hooked up at their local skate and BMX ramps in their hometown, St. Neots. With a mutual obsession for the gritty hardcore of bands like Agnostic Front and Sick of It All, to the metallic guile of Slayer and Pantera, the young upstarts began to put down their own tunes and started to play shows in their local area.
Fast forward some years, and after a series of set-backs and some necessary line-up changes sparked by the band’s recent conviction and newly found drive, Impact have laid down their commanding debut EP ‘Strength Through Loyalty.’ The record is enthralling, energetic and earnestly intense. From the colossal opening of ’To Those Lives Lost’ to the slamdown supercharged phasing of ‘Bite the Bullet’, the boisterous quintet have crafted a debut offering that oozes honest fury and bursts with pounding riffery.
Pulling influences from a series of hardcore/punk and metal bands, and serving up intelligent lyrics with full on heavy, yet melodic riffage, Impact deliver a sound that is sincerely potent and uncompromisingly brutal. The fivesome have already amassed a hefty collection of support slots from the likes of Agnostic Front, Madball, This Is Hell, Wisdom In Chains and Death Before Dishonor, to name a few, and have broadly toured throughout the UK, heading out to mainland Europe this Summer. Aided with radio airplay on BBC Radio 1s ‘The Lock Up Show’ and acclaim from Metal Hammer, the Cambridgeshire hardcore crew are set to drive home their imprint nationwide.
