Work began on ACT OF IMPALEMENT’s second album in February 2020, when all instruments were recorded; vocals were then done in March 2021, with everything recorded & mixed by Yautja’s Shibby Poole. The wait was definitely worth it, for Infernal Ordnance is a monstrous work, with ACT OF IMPALEMENT at their gutsfucking and most focused best. Eschewing some of the variety of its full-length predecessor, ACT OF IMPALEMENT’s second album surges forward with more songwriting finesse; every riff is given maximal room to inflict damage, every segment carried forward to its conclusion, and every transition seamless. That the power-trio can still show traces of Cianide, Bolt Thrower, Prophecy of Doom, and even Archgoat – often, all in the same song – and make it meld together consistently and compellingly is no small feat. Add to that their characteristically GUTTED guitar & bass tone and Infernal Ordnance verily becomes its namesake. Perhaps best yet, the album doesn’t overstay its welcome: ACT OF IMPALEMENT get in and slaughter in a mere 29 minutes.
