Los Angeles, CA
Continuously evolving metal act, Heart Impaled. First started by as an entirely electronic project created for the purpose of putting music to PC games in 2001. Around 2003-2004 a heavy emphasis on guitars, sampling and distortion was added to achieve a heavier tone. 2005, onward live instrumentation and the crossover into the metal genre proceeded.
Influenced by the sounds of Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Meshuggah, Anthrax, Testament, Soilwork, In Flames, Dark Tranquillity, Black label Society, White Zombie and many others. Also video game music and movie soundtracks.
My goal is to make video games based on metal albums.
And to make metal albums based on video game ideas.
To bring these multiple arts together through music. The purpose is to possibly inspire the creation of something beyond just the music itself. Books, games, animation. A plugging into a sound of hard and heavy music to inspire new media. Completely influenced by the use of hard music to blur the lines between the two and altogether create this unique genre that takes metal to this next generation of the metal fans who didn’t exactly grow up reading just about dragons and superhero comic books, but playing video games, watching movies, animation and listening to the metal.
Thank you all for the support and appreciation!
