The German four-piece Imparage came together in 2001 with the intention of creating "groove and technical death metal". The groove aspect is apparent, but it's a little more difficult to spot the technical facets in the music. The Germans don't pull out any surprises at all on Depraved Disposition, but it's also uncommon that a band get everything right on their debut. The music is fairly varied, but not in a very captivating way.
There are three blatant explanations why that is - the first and most noticeable is the lack of momentum making Depraved Disposition a snooze fest at times. The second is that the vocals have a tendency to become rather same-sounding after a while and the third cause is the thin guitar sound. It differently doesn't provide the music with a very compact and meaty expression. The band recorded, engineered and produced everything themselves and it can be discussed whether that was a smart move? No doubt that Imparage have some alright ideas, but they sure need to work more on the element of surprise as it is nonexistent today.
