Christian deathcore group Impending Doom is hard at work on a new studio album, due out sometime next year. They are currently in the pre-production stage for what will be their third full-length release on Facedown Records. The new material has been described as “sounding way catchy.” A video update can be seen at the end of this post.

I found their “pig-squeal”-filled debut to be nearly unlistenable, but this year’s follow-up, The Serpent Servant, was a definite step forward. Even so, I wouldn’t recommend them to anyone who doesn’t enjoy the breakdown-filled heavy music of today’s scene.

Hopefully the new album has more sick nu metal breakdowns like the one in “More Than Conquerors.”
