IMPURE WILHELMINA have recently premiered a new video for the song "Murderers" which was taken from the band's latest album 'Radiation' (2017). Watch the clip via the official Season of Mist Youtube Channel here.

The band comments on the video: "We are proud to present our new video for the song «Murderers» taken from «Radiation». This song is about the loss of spirituality in the contemporary world, although it is still perennial around us. The religious representations are often seen as empty shells, and they are, because they can't make sense to a faithless soul. To catch the particular spirit of this song, we worked again with the talented Brunelle. Hope you will enjoy it as much as we do."

IMPURE WILHELMINA will be touring in support of their latest album, 'Radiation', which has been released on July 7th, 2017. The record is still available in the Season of Mist shop HERE.

Biography

Impure_wilhelmina-0999-rebecca_bowring

IMPURE WILHELMINA have been creating music on the border between rock and metal for over 20 years. Founded by vocalist and guitarist Michael Schindl and his brother David on drums in 1996, the band from Geneva made a strong impact with their self-released debut album 'Afraid' (1999), which saw the Swiss being regarded on the same level with compatriots such as NOSTROMO and KNUT from the local metallic hardcore scene.

During the next years, the line-up of IMPURE WILHELMINA underwent many changes, while revolving around main composer and lyricist Michael Schindl. These creative encounters allowed the band to endlessly rethink their direction and turn each of their albums into a singular piece, while keeping a unique touch, mixing intensity, heaviness, melody and melancholy.

IMPURE WILHELMINA released a self-titled 7" in 1996, the 'Undressing Your Soul' EP in 1998, a split EP with ORDEAL in 2001, and five full-lengths so far. The critically acclaimed 'I Can't Believe I Was Born in July' (2003) and 'L'amour, la mort, l'enfance perdue' (2005) have been viewed as key albums regarding the band's style, while 'Prayers and Arsons' (2008) marked a new step in their evolution with the inclusion of more rock elements.

Not resting on their laurels, IMPURE WILHELMINA generated much enthusiasm and surprise with their recently released full-length 'Black Honey', which was first released on vinyl in 2014 and followed by a CD in 2015. This album features more prominent and clean singing. Overall less aggressive, 'Black Honey' boosts emotional intensity and melodic atmospheres, while revealing multiple new facets of the band.

Over the years, IMPURE WILHELMINA have garnered an excellent reputation as a particularly strong live entity and shared stages with illustrious groups such as NEUROSIS, ENTOMBED, THE OCEAN, GOJIRA, ISIS, ZATOKREV, and KRUGER.

With 'Radiation', IMPURE WILHELMINA have created an album that invites the listener to explore and discover new hidden treasures with every spin. Welcome to this journey into uncharted musical lands…
