You ok after Sam being a prize bellend last night?g

Friday, 28 December 2012


If you're reading this then you'll have heard our sad news that Sam Walker is no longer playing bass for IMPALED EXISTENCE, again we wish him the best of luck for the future and we will all be remaining the closest of friends.

That being said, we must look forward and we are excited to announce the search for our new bassist will start NOW! We want to make the application process as easy, and hopefully as fun as possible.

We need someone who is hard-working, ideally in employment and someone who can drive within the North Wales / Chester area. We are at a stage where we are piecing together our first full-length album, so there is a lot of technical material ready to learn and rehearse, safe to say we need someone who will be extremely committed to the band and putting in the hours to catch up with the progress the 4 of us have made. Ideally we will be looking for someone who shares the same musical influences as the rest of us and someone who is going to leave it all out there on stage. 

So here's how to apply -

Below you will see a .RAR/ZIP file containing the Guitar Pro file for our track 'Your Legacy, Lost' , for non-GP users we have included a PDF of the music sheet for the track and a MIDI version of the track so you know the structures etc. You will also find a Word Document with some of the basics we need to know about you as well.

We are looking for you to put a video together, nothing fancy, of you playing along to the track, in it's GP or MIDI form, if this is not possible we will accept audio applicants as well. Basically find a way to get something over to us of you playing the track. Videos can be uploaded to YouTube, feel free to mark them as unlisted and provide us with a link, audio can be uploaded to SoundCloud, or again, YouTube etc. Please also fill out the word doc so we know some of your basics as well.

This info can then be sent to us directly through to the Facebook Inbox (Please send all direct messages to www.facebook.com/impaledexistence)

Any questions, please don't hesitate to ask us on FB.

And for a potential better reference point, here is 'Your Legacy, Lost' filmed by a fan from Download 2012 -

There are other uploads of the track on YouTube also.

We haven't set a time limit on this So happy bassing and hopefully we will be speaking to you soon!

Best of luck,

Danny, Mike, Craig, Nathan


Ok, so a few of you have been asking when and where we practice each week so it's probably worth putting here just in case anyone else is wondering the same. 

We practice Monday evenings in Bagillt, near Holywell / Flint. 

Hope that helps!



To move forward with the search we have decided to hold an opening evening at our practice hall in Bagillt, Near Holywell/Flint in North Wales on Saturday March 16th! If you are interested in coming down to try out PLEASE LET US KNOW ASAP as we will be allotting times to everyone coming down so you're all not there at once! 

Ideally we'll be wanting you to jam through our song 'YOUR LEGACY, LOST' all details of which can be found in the blog above. Please also check the blog out for further information on what we are looking for etc. 

Hope to hear from you soon!

Good Morning World!

So now we are well and truly back to reality after The DestrUKtion Tour! A good time to reflect...

The first show was London Club 24, which means a ballache of a drive and west cake London drivers. We made it to the venue in good time for sound checks! Everyone was really cool and we were looking forward to kicking the tour off in style!

The show turned out to be a relatively quiet one, but it was good to chill and get into our groove! After the gig we were lucky enough to stay at one of Nathan's buddies houses, and it was a swish bad! Also the birth and death place of #sleepingbagairbed. Don't ask.

The next show was Bogiez in Cardiff, after FINALLY getting out of London we made good time getting back to the homeland. Bogiez is a nice little venue and the sound check was a beast so we were pumped! Before we played a band called Ten Cent Toy played, these guys were awesome and friendly dudes. Shout out to Pit Worker and his Lion outfit! Our set seemed to go down well and everybody had a good time! After the show it was party time, which we did. 4 minging kebabs later we slept in Danny's car, only...we barely slept. But hey ho! We were buzzing for the next day...

...For the next day was the home town show in at Wrexham Central Station!!! The shows at Central are always sick and we were playing alongside our buddies Severenth, A Hymn For The Fallen & newcomers In Depths. Everyone put on a hell of a show and the crowd went sick.

After the Wrexham show it was time for us all to go home and shower....we had a day off and then it was back out on the road!

We couldn't wait to get back out again, even if it did mean a drive to Glasgow! When we walked into The Vale we didn't know what to expect...unless the Glasgow scene is full of old men....luckily the actual venue was upstairs , there would be no hearing aids broken on our watch. All the bands we played with were cool as fuck, special shout out to the guys in Cemtex we were absolutely devastating and also cool enough to put us up for the night!

The drive the next day to Birmingham was special for two reasons. It was the birth of BILLEH! And we found out our first music video for 'If Error Were True' had been exclusively released through Terrorizer!

The Birmingham show at Scruffy Murphies was one of the quieter ones but we got our groove on none the less and enjoyed a few beers with Danny's old man!

Next it was off to Oxford, we had a day off before the gig at the O2 Academy so we thought it only right to go absolutely sick at the Travel Lodge. We stocked up on beers, spirits and all necessary ingredients to make alien brain hemorrhages. #nom. Safe to say it was a messy night.

So it was the day of the O2 show and we couldn't wait. With over 150 pre-sold tickets we knew it was going to be a busy one. And boy was it busy! Massive shout out to Geezer for the awesome mix he did for us and props to A Trust Unclean, ridiculous Deathcore band from Oxford. Time for more beers!

The final date of the tour meant a trip even further South to Brighton. What can we say about Brighton? It's fucking westville, within 10 minutes of being there we had seen a random women trying to eat her own face, Sharkboy, a man sounding like a bird and a guy trying to sell us chillis. WEST! After all that we had no idea what to expect from The Green Door Stoor. But it turned out to be a killer show. A perfect end to the tour.

After the long drive back and a month to reflect we can safely say that we had the best time of our lives, the shows, the banta, the KFCs. It was all amazing.

We'd quite like to tour again please?

Good afternoon one and all!

Ok....firstly all attempts to keep up to date with this weekly blog died a slow and agonising death. So the term “IMEX WEEKLY BLOG” is now a completely ironic term, the blog will be updated...for lack of a better term, when we can be arsed :D

Right then, onto this blogging shenanigans.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! It's 2012 and we could NOT be more excited for this year if we tried, last year was so amazing for us, playing Bloodstock, winning the Metal Hammer competition to open up for Evile in Nottingham, supporting Xerath and Annotations Of An Autopsy just to name a few highlights! The biggest highlight though has to be the release of our E.P 'THESE LIFELESS PLAINS' – it took us a while to finally release the bastard but the grind has been totally worth it, the feedback has been fantastic. Our primary goal for the first half of 2012 is to tour the hell out of TLP and hopefully shift a few copies in the meantime! So if you know your local promoter get in-touch with them or give us their name so we can spam them until they give a gig! OPERATION 'BUSYFUCKERS' COMMENCE!

Our goal for the second half of the year is already well under way and has been for a good while now. Our first full-length album! We have about 90% of the material written so far, and we couldn't be happier with the results. If you've caught us at a live show recently you will have hopefully heard our 2 new songs 'Your Legacy, Lost' and 'The Forgotten Deceiver'. These tracks give you a taster of the direction we're moving in, heavier, more progressive and more brutal whilst keeping the IMEX sound at the core! Your feedback on the new songs would be awesome, holla at us at shows or on FB!

In the next month or so we are aiming to record our first music video! [Whoop!] This will be for the track WORTHY OF REMAINS off the new E.P. More on this when we have it, keep checking the FB for updates!

Speaking of videos, during our Bloodstock set last year our track THROUGH STINGING EYES was filmed by professional filming company 'THE DARK BOX' [www.thedarkbox.co.uk] You'll have seen us spamming walls with the YouTube video, but if you haven't seen it...

Our first gig of 2012 was at De Bees in Winsford, with our good buddies THIS IS TURIN [www.facebook.com/thisisturin] and Hymn For The Fallen [http://www.facebook.com/HymnForTheFallen] The night was a huge success, with many heads packing into the venue to support local metal, was awesome to see. HFTF delivered their crunching deathcore sound and TIT were as tight as ever, can't wait for your album boys! Sortit aaarrrrrrt!

Future shows are looking like this -

Feb 4th – Salford w/Candid Iniquity & Infernal Creation
Feb 25th – Ellesmere Port w/Last Baron
March 11th – Stoke-On-Trent w/Wolfcrusher

However, WE WANT MORE SHOWS! Keep your eyes peeled to the FB for new show announcements etc.

Well that just about does it, thanks for taking the time to read this week's blog and hopefully we'll be a bit more frequent with them in the future! NEXT TIME we should have more news about the video and we will be revealing a little more about the album!

Muchos Love, The Boys From IMEX.

Greetz All!!!

It’s been a busy few weeks for us! But we’ll start by discussing the gig with Apollyon from Saturday 28th May at Tribal Jam in Oswestry! We haven’t played Tribal Jam in almost two years, what a way to make us feel old! The show was great, but the beer was expensive, luckily Jay from Primal State [Also the promoter of the Tribal Jame events] was on hand with some free beer for the bands. Win! Also great to catch up with our Apollyon buddies, who also played a sick set! There new tunes were banging, they will also have a new E.P out very soon so keep an eye out for that! All in all, a quality night, we hope it isn’t another 2 years before our next Tribal Jam gig!

This past Saturday we played Club Academy with Killshot & Propax! We were pretty much blown away by the venue, awesome sound and a great feel to the place. A better turn-out would've been nice but we weren't expecting much having never played Manchester! We're hoping to confirm some other gigs around Manchester later in the year. Again, free beer was awesome! Cheers to the organisers for having us!

We have officially placed orders for our E.P THESE LIFELESS PLAINS this week! Everything is finally ready to send off! We should hopefully be able to announce an official release date next week! Thanks for being patient with us on this one, means a lot. We have also ordered some other bits of merch! More on this soon as well :P

We have had a make-over on our Facebook, a sexy new design by Richie Design, who did our old MySpace design, and has also helped us out with gig posters etc. Check out his website over at http://www.richie-design.co.uk/ You can check the new IMEX page on the "Welcome Page" tab on our page.

Twitter users will also notice a nice new background on our page, also courtesy of Richie Design. If you follow us, send us a mention. We are @imexofficial

Richie also put together this sweet little flyer for us, we will be updating this with other confirmed gigs as and when we announce them!
We have some gigs updates for you guys as well! We have been confirmed to play The Krazy House in liverpool on Friday July 1st! And also The Green Star in Stoke on Sunday October 9th! These will be added to the flyer soon! There are also a few other offers we are just waiting to confirm, so the summer is shaping up to be an immense one!
That's pretty much us for now, we have some awesome pics from Saturday's gig in Manchester that will hopefully be online over the next few days, other than that, keeping checking the FB for updates and keep the spreading the word! You're help is in-vauluable to us! THANKYOU!!!!

Muchos Love, The Boys From IMEX.

First and foremost A HUGE MASSIVE THANKS to EVERYONE who came down last Sunday night and went absolutely sick for us. We owe you guys so much; the harder you go…the harder we go!!!

Hope all that came had a sick time and felt the bruises the day after =P There are a few sore necks amongst us guys don’t you worry!!!

To those who don’t know and are wondering what the hell we’re talking about…last night we won our heat of the Metal To The Masses competition to play the New Blood stage of this years Bloodstock festival! So know we are through to the final!!!

We would love to see all of you guys come back for the ride one more time, and hope that anyone who couldn't make it down can make it down this time!!! So far we are in talks to put on mini-buses from The Coast, Liverpool and Winnington! So if you live in those areas and want to come, get in-touch with Sam Walker on Facebook and we’ll add you to the list for your local area! We have some awesome plans for the final and will be WELL worth your trip. Also confirmed for the final are Apollyon, Severenth and Spires, so the competition will be tough! But it’s a credit to our local scene that there is this much talent around!!!

Here is the Facebook even for our campaign. Please check it out and invite as many people as you can get away with =P -http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=167710109956375

But before that we have lots of exciting things ahead! We are playing Tribal Jam [Fox Inn] in Oswestry this Saturday, 28th May! It’s been a good while since we’ve played there and plan on getting Oswestry up to speed! We’re playing with 4 other bands including Apollyon, The Misty Blue Trio, The Albino Excuse and String The Marionette. So if you’re local to there or can get down, come join us!!!

The E.P is good to go! We will be placing our order for THESE LIFELESS PLAINS in the next week or so, so expect more news on the release date VERY soon! We also have other exciting merch news, but we will save this for next time =P

In other random news, Danny, Sam and Craig [Keith] went to see The Faceless, Born Of Osiris, Veil Of Maya & Gorod this past Friday at Moho Live in Manchester and hooooly hell what a gig, Veil Of Maya stole the show for us, with Born Of Osiris coming in a close second. But the story of the night is that we ended up heading to Satan’s Hollow and ended up partying with the Born Of Osiris, Gorod & The Faceless guys until the early hours!!! Those guys know how to party and harass local women! Danny’s bank account was £150 lighter after buying shots for them all night! But it was highlight of the year so far for sure!

Once again, apologies for the lack of updates guys, normal service shall now be resumed! Spread the word on Facebook, suggest us to your friends and follow us on twitter!

And any Impaled Existence related Planking wins a prize =P

Until next week, BE SAFE!

The boys from IMEX.

So it’s Blog O’Clock again! Hope everyone enjoyed last week’s blog and you’re getting use out of the desktop wallpapers we gave you! Gonna start with this weeks freebies! Hopefully you should have noticed our youtube video trailer for THESE LIFELESS PLAINS by now [If not the link is below!] Well we have made an alternative video featuring various shots from the recording process [Some serious and some…not so serious!]

Check it out! - 

It’s been a fairly busy week with regards to our online content! We’ve had a youtube channel sitting dormant for over a year or so and we thought it was about time we started to utilise it! Head over to http://www.youtube.com/imexofficial and check out the three videos we have uploaded. So far we have –

Go and watch these if you have 10 minutes free, let’s get the views up and see if we can make it on to rudetube! We’re gonna be uploading much much more in the future so keep checking back for more updates!

There’s a small local movement gathering some momentum that we thought worth mentioning. You may have heard about “Unknown Sound” [http://www.facebook.com/Unknownsound] These guys are offering a great service for local bands to unite together and spread the collective word, not only in the local area…but all over the country! Go over to their FB page and read more about it! But if you’re in a band and want the chance to have your name passed about…get in-touch with the dudes and put your names forward! Over at their blog [http://unknownsound.tumblr.com/] they have done an in-depth review of our track “IF ERROR WERE TRUE” It makes for a great read…with Danny being described as a “bear of a man by all descriptions” being one of the highlights. Look out for an online interview they have recently done with us being uploaded soon!

So today is the deadline we set ourselves for choosing which printing companies to go with for the upcoming merch, hopefully next week we will be able to let you know which companies we thought were best prices / quality etc. More on that when we know more!

For those of you who use SoundCloud, we have uploaded two tracks off THESE LIFELESS PLAINS on there. If you’re a user head over to http://soundcloud.com/imexofficial and leave us some abuse. If there are any other websites you feel we should be using to help spread our music about, please let us know, feedback and suggestions are most welcome and encouraged!

That pretty much has everything covered for this week, so as usual stay sick and see you fuckers tonight at Hammerfest! If you see Danny, Sam and Nath knocking about [Ticket winning!] then make sure you say hey!
