"We all grew up on old-school Rock and Metal"
Merging influence from guitar-heavy bands like
Pantera, Meshuggah, & Lamb of God; to the Seattle grunge sound of Soundgarden & Alice in Chains; to the soaring vocal styles of bands such as Scorpions, Skid Row, & Alter Bridge; and including but not limited to the psychedelic and progressive grooves of bands like Porcupine Tree, Tool, & OSI
The Impurity's music has been described as a
of "Heavy and Beautiful, both Classic and one step ahead of 'Modern'"
"Our mission is to write music that stands the test of time."
Being a 'Metal' band however, The Impurity does not consider itself 'genre-confined'. "We take influence from the expressions of all walks of life, whatever has feeling and the right meaning. The 'Heavy' sound will always hold the greatest place in our hearts, though."
"We are artists, aware of the ever evolving, creative-collective-consciousness of the world's soul, and ready to leave our mark in this timeline to the transcendental, like those before us who answered the call."
