Greetz!

So it’s Blog O’Clock again! Hope everyone enjoyed last week’s blog and you’re getting use out of the desktop wallpapers we gave you! Gonna start with this weeks freebies! Hopefully you should have noticed our youtube video trailer for THESE LIFELESS PLAINS by now [If not the link is below!] Well we have made an alternative video featuring various shots from the recording process [Some serious and some…not so serious!]

Check it out! - 


It’s been a fairly busy week with regards to our online content! We’ve had a youtube channel sitting dormant for over a year or so and we thought it was about time we started to utilise it! Head over to http://www.youtube.com/imexofficial and check out the three videos we have uploaded. So far we have –




Go and watch these if you have 10 minutes free, let’s get the views up and see if we can make it on to rudetube! We’re gonna be uploading much much more in the future so keep checking back for more updates!

There’s a small local movement gathering some momentum that we thought worth mentioning. You may have heard about “Unknown Sound” [http://www.facebook.com/Unknownsound] These guys are offering a great service for local bands to unite together and spread the collective word, not only in the local area…but all over the country! Go over to their FB page and read more about it! But if you’re in a band and want the chance to have your name passed about…get in-touch with the dudes and put your names forward! Over at their blog [http://unknownsound.tumblr.com/] they have done an in-depth review of our track “IF ERROR WERE TRUE” It makes for a great read…with Danny being described as a “bear of a man by all descriptions” being one of the highlights. Look out for an online interview they have recently done with us being uploaded soon!

So today is the deadline we set ourselves for choosing which printing companies to go with for the upcoming merch, hopefully next week we will be able to let you know which companies we thought were best prices / quality etc. More on that when we know more!

For those of you who use SoundCloud, we have uploaded two tracks off THESE LIFELESS PLAINS on there. If you’re a user head over to http://soundcloud.com/imexofficial and leave us some abuse. If there are any other websites you feel we should be using to help spread our music about, please let us know, feedback and suggestions are most welcome and encouraged!

That pretty much has everything covered for this week, so as usual stay sick and see you fuckers tonight at Hammerfest! If you see Danny, Sam and Nath knocking about [Ticket winning!] then make sure you say hey!

BE SAFE!

IMEX WEEKLY BLOG


Hope you guys all had a great week doing the things you do!
Firstly, we hope you enjoyed last week’s blog, we’ve had some great feedback on it which is EXACTLY what we want so keep it coming!!! The more the better!
Anyway…onto this weeks blog! Up first to mention is the gig from last Friday at The Parade in Llandudno! We had a FANTASTIC night and it’s safe to say everyone who came down enjoyed themselves. The support from all you Coastal metalheads is UN-REAL and we can’t thank you enough for doing your bit to keep the local music scene alive and kicking! It was panic stations to begin with as we had were struggling to give life to the P.A that we had borrowed for the evening! But Mikey came to the rescue and “Tweeked” life into it! So were up and running eventually! Was great to see MotherWrench and Inferno doing their thing, both bands OWNED it and guys was great to have you down. Everyone brought the COASTAL CARNAGE for us and we loved every second of our set, seeing you fuckers go crazy is what it’s all about! We will be putting on MANY more gigs at The Parade and make sure you keep coming down and supporting local music! Hopefully this venue might fill the void that Speaker’s Corner has left. Before we move on from the gig, we want to thank Carl Harris and James Cooper for helping us promote the night, without you two guys the gig would not have been the success it was. Mark Coxon of Jaded Images fame has reviewed the gig and you can read his thoughts here! - http://www.facebook.com/note.php?note_id=206730479338738&id=109486822419323
More info on future gigs at The Parade next week!
Our next gig is on March 27th at THE MASQUE in Liverpool supporting the death metal juggernaut that is MAN MUST DIE! These guys are a personal favourite of ours and we’re honoured to play with them once again. Here is the full line-up with MySpace links –
Man Must Die
With tickets being just £6 for this incredibly stacked line-up, this is NOT one to be missed. Tickets are available from the following website -http://whiplash4metal.bigcartel.com/
SEE YOU THERE!
So we’re another step closer to releasing THESE LIFELESS PLAINS! We think we have found the CD printing company for us, the samples we have seen are JUST what we want to achieve. Don Jackson-wyatt and the www.circlepit.tv team were recently given the first promo copy of the E.P for review and the review has gone online just in time to make this week’s blog! So check out their thoughts on our new E.P here! - http://www.circlepit.tv/album-reviews/impaled-existence-ep-review We’re gonna be wanting for as many reviews as possible so keep a look out in the future for more reviews!
We cannot wait to get this out there! Not long now…By next week we hope to give you the official date of release.
Last week you’ll remember we were having our first band practise in Bagillt. This little gem of a hall Is perfect for us, has it’s own little stage and the natural acoustics there are sounding awesome! Think we have found our new home. But an apology to the neighbours…as it is situated in the middle of a residential street… =P
