Upcoming Release:

Impact Approved Charges Ahead with "Way of the Warrior"

Impact Approved feat. Lewis of April in Flames - The Truth

Prepare yourselves, metal warriors, because Impact Approved is back with a vengeance. Following the seismic waves created by their 2021 debut, "Into the Fray," the band is ready to unleash their sophomore effort, "Way of the Warrior," on June 14th, 2024. And trust me, this is an album that hits harder than a Spartan shield bash.
The journey to "Way of the Warrior" began in the aftermath of the band's explosive debut. Witnessing the electrifying reception of live tracks like "The Truth" and "Atelophobia," Impact Approved set out to push the limits of melodic death metal, infusing it with djent and deathcore elements. Guitarist and drummer Uwe led the charge, penning 90% of the new material, while bassist Maurice added his signature flair with atmospheric basslines that elevate the band's sound to new heights.
The band’s collaborative spirit shines through in tracks like "Isolation," where final touches and structural tweaks create a polished and powerful sound. Phil’s vocal delivery is the final layer of intensity, with each track showcasing the band’s diverse influences and relentless experimentation.
Maintaining a thematic connection to their debut, "Way of the Warrior" features the iconic Spartan warrior on its cover. This symbol of resilience and strength perfectly encapsulates the album’s spirit. Impact Approved isn’t just delivering music; they’re telling a story of fortitude and unyielding will.
