LP - Black Vinyl. 1992 debut album of classic UK Death Metal from Impaler with artwork was created by guitarist/bassist Chris Drew.
UK based Death metal outft Impaler formed under the name of Carnage in 1988, before changing their name in 1991 upon signing a deal with Deaf Records, sublabel of Peaceville Records which spawned the likes of At the Gates.
'Charnel Deity' was the band's only full-length album release, though it has grown over the years to be considered as an underrated & often overlooked "lost classic" of early 90's UK death metal, when rated among some of the more known acts in the scene from that period. A work of catchy, often thrash-tinged death metal riffs & frantic soloing, backed up by sick vocals, 'Charnel Deity' at times evokes a similar feeling in their compositions to bands such as UK greats, Cancer, with effective, well- crafted headbanging anthems.
The artwork was created by guitarist/bassist Chris Drew, who also designed the cover art for other early Peaceville bands, Baphomet & Accidental Suicide.
