Formed in 1990, Finnish extreme metallers Impaled Nazarene have managed to piss off a substantial amount of people throughout their long career. With 2000's Nihil, their sixth album overall, the band was up to its old uncompromising antics. Impaled Nazarene enlisted Alexi Laiho (Children of Bodom) as lead guitarist and wrote an album that got banned in Germany because of lyrical content. They were subsequently banned from playing in several European countries. Nihil was recorded and mixed at Astia studio by Anssi Kippo and mastered at Finnfox studio by Mika Jussila. The infamous black metal classic is presented here in its first ever domestic LP release courtesy of Osmose Productions.
"Our album 'Nihil' has officially entered Germany's Index list A...This means that 'Nihil' is officially banned in Germany...being unable to play concerts in Italy, Austria, France, Poland and Germany, one can only conclude that freedom of speech and freedom of religion, things that are supposed to be the foundation of the European Union, are not existing. Your lives are terrorized by deranged Catholic sects and glue-sniffing communists. Braindead imbeciles tell you what you should/what you cannot listen to, read or watch. Happy fucking middle ages part 666 and fuck off." - Impaled Nazarene
