Impiety has posted the following message online about dropping off the band's upcoming tour with Incantation:
"96 hours of trying to find a solution has come to an end. It's regretfully impossible. In the end Impiety cannot fulfill this European tour supporting Incantation due to a personal problem of Nizam's which we can't solve during this final weeks.
"We've tried to get a session guitar player, but time is not on our side and personally for me, it just wouldn't be as great. A new support band in replacement will be announced tomorrow. We wish the bands the very best on the Incantation Crusade of Vengeance Tour this November 8th til 23rd.
"And to all who await us, just exercise some patience til early 2014, when we return and bring the hammer down upon this politically retarded, godforsaken planet once again.
"We will announce all upcoming 2014 concerts this December - Burst Command til Death !!! - Later, Komrades!"

Texas is a large enough state, the largest of the lower forty-eight, and has so many metal scenes that its promoters have built festivals consisting solely of bands within its large borders. The Goregrowler’s Ball built its foundation on Lone Star groups. The first installment began five years ago, when festival organizer, Aaron Mendiola (read his interview) threw a thirty-band birthday bash in honor of his thirtieth birthday. Devourment headlined, a Texas band, albeit one of international acclaim. Since the first sanguinary celebration in 2007, Mendiola has continually increased the amount of signed bands with strong reputations in the metal underground, culminating with the strongest lineup yet at this year’s festivities.
As many festival promoters before him have done, Mendiola tapped some of the talent from ongoing tours. The Metal Underground-sponsored tour featuring Exhumed, Goatwhore and Havok provided day one’s headliners. Singaporean black metallers, Impiety didn’t have to board a plane for thirty hours (or however long it takes) to arrive in Texas. The festival comprised their San Antonio stop on the tour. Gravehill were part of this tour and were originally scheduled to play the Ball, but cancelled at the beginning of the month. Internal Bleeding, Hirax and Brutal Truth took center stage on Saturday and Suffocation ended the fest in a bone-breaking fashion.
The “A Clockwork Orange” dubbed Korova Club played host to the event. The club’s downtown location provided plenty of cheap parking, but the outdoor stage sparked controversy from townies and tourists alike. As if the festival were an odd, new River Walk attraction, people passing by often stopped and took in the strange noises that emanated from Korova’s parking lot stage. Food and beverages were prohibited from entering or leaving Korova’s gated premises, but allegedly one patron took a beer to the parking lot, which resulted in the club receiving a fine. On the third day, one of the fans alleged that the outdoor stage would be shut down due to excessive profanity. That never happened, but Goatwhore’s 11:30-12:00 outdoor showing went inside. Day two saw the indoor-outdoor shuffle retire at 10 PM and even earlier on the third day. More...

Impiety recently announced the recruitment of new drummer Dizazter. The band has now issued the follwoing statement about parting ways with former drummer Atum:
"Shyaithan and Impiety announces a line up shuffle this year, and this done so that logistically it may prove better for the band and it's continuous progress to wreak more chaos and carnage across this godforsaken globe, one we all call Planet Earth. It was never an easy decision to let Atum go but after much consideration it had to be done.
"Here is Atum's closing statement: 'After 10 months of hard work, worldwide touring and skullfucking recordings, i'm here to communicate my departure from Impiety. The recent events made me and Shyaithan come to the conclusion that our musical paths are taking different directions, so we decided to split in order to maintain a good friendship and keep in contact to support each other's career, which we are already doing. I'll keep working restlessly with Music as always, we're just done recording the new album with Divine Codex so stay true and keep supporting true Music. My Best wishes to Shyaithan and Impiety.'
"Impiety extends it's gratification to this brilliant drummer and thanks Atum for the greatest of times spent together rehearsing, recording as well as executing 10 hellish concerts together. Irreplaceable would be these greatest memories and achievements of Atum in Impiety and it shall continue to live on. We wish Atum every success with his main band Divine Codex and all future projects/bands he will work with. Despite different career paths now, we shall remain in close contact and support his every effort and endeavour being one of the best drummers and greatest komrade we've known. ALL HAIL ATUM!"
Impiety has checked in with the following update about recruiting a new drummer:
"Dizazter, the new full time drummer for mighty Impiety, 32 yrs of age - is from Perth, Australia and will make his debut appearance on the Asian Abomination Tour 2011 as well as other world tours up and coming. Total decimation awaits!"
Impiety, which recently signed to Pulervised Records, will be releasing a re-mastered version of "Skullfucking Armageddon" via Agonia Records as a limited digipak edition and on vinyl. The new edition will see release in Europe and the U.S. on June 24th, 2011.
Pulverised Records has welcomed Singaporean black/death warmachine Impiety to the label's roster for an upcoming eighth studio album.
Commented founding bassist/vocalist Shyaithan on the signing: "The best of Impiety has yet to come! Writing the upcoming storm serves as a greater challenge to myself and all previous endeavors. One thing definitely to expect is that this new full-length album will hammer you ten times harder than all previous revelations. Blood and Chaos shall dominate but Lightning Death will be its ultimate crowning glory!”
Added Pulverised Records A&R Manager Calvin Chiang: "Impiety, with their vibrant history as the first band to put Singapore on the extreme metal map, has grown rapidly in recent years with a fearsome reputation of being a no-holds-barred ferocious live act. And now it has come full circle; this formidable co-operation for the upcoming new full-length opus will prove once again that IMPIETY is truly at the top of their game, sitting proud and high at the blackened elite throne of blasphemy. Asian and Arrogant!"
