We’re pleased to bring you the exclusive stream of Purgatory‘s new track “Season In Pain” (listen below). The song is taken from the band’s upcoming EP Gospel Of War, out December 18th through Escapist Records.
The 7″ EP is fueled by a spectrum of influences (mid-90s hardcore, 80s thrash, and early 90s death metal,) with an appeal to fans of all things heavy. On their first proper release Purgatory delivers six tracks of aggressive, unrelenting metal-driven hardcore that moves at a furious pace, never letting up from start to finish. Purgatory pays homage to the band’s influences as Gospel Of War unfolds but invigorates those influences with new life, demonstrating that the Midwest band is a force to be reckoned with in today’s hardcore scene.
Since their formation in 2011, Purgatory has supported themselves with a persistent work ethic including self-released recordings and self-booked tours. The band’s hard work has paid off for the band. Since toured relentlessly – allowing them to share the stage with the likes of Terror, Merauder, The Beautiful Ones, and Stray From The Path, among many more peers – and shows no signs of slowing down.
