A Killer Independent Record Label

The Vile Impurity


Swimming With Sharks Records is proud to announce the signing of Technical Death Metal outfit, The Vile Impurity, from Springfield, Illinois. The band recently recorded their debut E.P., ‘Anathema’, at Audio Aggregate Studios in Des Moines, Iowa with Engineer/Producer Dustin Miller, who has recorded albums for well-known Record Labels such as Metal Blade, Eulogy, Prosthetic Records, Trust-kill, Mediaskare and Sumerian. Bass tracks for the E.P. were recorded with Aaron Kaufmann, former bass player for After the Burning.
Drummer, Pete Rock states, “The Vile Impurity is pleased to announce our signing to Swimming With Sharks Records. We have found a tremendous home within SWS and are stoked to be affiliated with such a hard working label, full of talented artists. We will be releasing an E.P., entitled Anathema, first thing and will be hitting the road very soon to promote its release. Big things are in store for the future and we look forward to seeing you all soon! Keep it fucking brutal!”
The band got its start when guitarist, Miles Ellegood, and drummer, Pete Rock, united forces to create their own unique and viscous blend of brutal death metal in the Summer of 2010. They were soon after joined by vocalist, Dustin Ogle, and bassist, Aaron Kaufmann. The band self-released their first E.P. entitled, ‘Sanctity In Ruin’, under the moniker, After The Burning. The recording was released to much critical acclaim from the underground death metal scene and the group began supporting national acts such as Origin, The Browning, Periphery, Abysmal Dawn, Wretched, Goatwhore, and others. Aaron Kaufmann was eventually replaced by former Lividity bassist, Jake Lahniers. Shortly before signing to Swimming With Sharks Records the band collectively decided to change their name to The Vile Impurity, which they deemed a better fit for their newer, more powerful sound. The band plans on touring in support of their latest release, ‘Anethema’, in early Spring of 2012.
