For more than ten years, Franco-Spanish conquistadors Impureza have been pioneering their unique style, which combines Iberian soundscapes with brutal death metal. The band's ground-breaking second album, La Caída De Tonatiuh, was recorded and produced by Sylvain Biguet (Klone, Trepalium) and mastered by triple Grammy award winner Bob Katz, which resulted in a perfect blend of sonic extremes with the traditional instrumentation to achieve a warm yet aggressive organic sound.
Impureza express the traditional part of their musical heritage through the use of acoustic folk guitars, flamenco rhythm patterns, and exclusively Spanish lyrics. This concept derives from the interest of founding member Lionel Cano Muñoz and his "compañero" Esteban Martín, who are both of Spanish origin and draw inspiration from their identity. Esteban Martín adds his multiple vocal facets that range from death metal growling to clean singing inspired by the sadly late gitano-legend Camarón De La Isla among others.
In a similar way, Lionel Cano Muñoz shifts between the aggression and power of his 7-string electric guitar and the intricacy of the Spanish flamenco guitar. This is backed up by Florian Saillard, who complements the electric string section with his 6-string bass and the flamenco parts with an acoustic bass guitar. Even more string power is added live by rhythm guitarist Olivier Hanoulle. Drummer Guilhem Auge is perfectly complementing the band with his unique rhythm patterns and Hispanic groove.
