Hailing from Virginia Beach, VA, death-grind outfit Applaud the Impaler has resurfaced and established auditorial decimation with their distinctive ferocious speed, tremor-like heaviness, and vacillating grooves as incontestable vigor united again with Unique Leader Records and their arsenal of monolithic brutality.

Assembled in 2008, Applaud the Impaler set out to embark on a journey of musical conception by combining utter brutality with unique creativity. The bands decisions to remain glued to it’s roots, composed of extremely diverse influences among each band member, fundamentally created a reputable and diverse sound unparalleled with what was modern at the time.

Applaud the Impaler was able to fuse the taste buds of Death Metal and Deathcore with a hint of Grind to allow their music to position itself into a rare category of it’s own, and concrete a redoubtable nature. Applaud the Impaler then emerged through an ambivalent era of new heavy music appropriated with heavily bias opinions- the all out war of “Death Metal vs.

Deathcore.” The band was left splashing against the rim of a self-created cocktail of accepted recognition, equivocal opinions, and absolute repudiation. It was then, in 2010, while wading through the recipe of ambiguity, Erik Lindmark had contacted Applaud the Impaler to sign with Unique Leader records.

Erik had foreseen great opportunity in the band and Unique Leader Records released their first EP, “Anthropophagi” on November 23, 2010. The journey on Unique Leader had initiated and Applaud the Impaler had started their imprint across the country with forthright devastation on several tours including a stint on the labels own yearly tour, Bloodletting 9, featuring Gorod.

Some time later, the band had finished writing for their debut album and ventured to Knoxville, Tennessee to record at The Sound Lair with MiAH Lajeunesse (Whitechapel, Aegeaon, etc.). After completion of the new album recordings, Applaud the Impaler had no choice but to go on a temporary hiatus due to internal personal dealings- a set back to the release.

Erik Lindmark had remained patient and supportive of Applaud the Impaler until they were ready to exhume their course. In the second half of 2018, after some member changes, Applaud the Impaler cranked back up, put it in gear, and got the wheels spinning on releasing their new album. Remaining an armament in the Unique Leader army, and in an era of: savage, ruthless, and merciless new music tangled with indubitable talent, Applaud the Impaler find themselves once again on the battle ground sided with some of the most extreme bands to date.

The release of their new music will see to it that Unique Leader has added a devastating weapon to their armory. .
