Canadian deathcore pioneers DESPISED ICON are back to reveal their 6th full length album: »Purgatory.« Not a theological band by any means, »Purgatory« is meant to represent the mortal experience of being trapped in a suffering state and left to brood; stuck in notions of great loss and permanent scars that will ultimately define you. It is from these incidents that humans grow.
As far as DESPISED ICON goes, fans can expect a bit more diversity and experimentation with »Purgatory« both musically and production wise. Songs like the second single 'Snake In The Grass' discuss the experience of holding someone in very high esteem in your mind, to then realize that they are not only imperfect, but often deceitful. The track 'Slow Burning' is a heavy reflection on violence amongst society.
The writing process was a bit different for »Purgatory« than with albums of the past. As far as production, the band handles everything internally with the help of their former guitar player/current front of house engineer, Yannick St-Amand. With a true understanding of the band, Yannick is viewed as their 7th member and once again took responsibility for the entire recording process. The band then had everything mixed and mastered by Christian Donaldson (CRYPTOPSY guitarist).
Perhaps their most dynamic venture to date, DESPISED ICON have a fresh and energy filled arrangement just waiting to see the light of day in the form of »Purgatory.« For many years, they have laid the foundation of deathcore and spearheaded different sounds and movements within the genre. Their latest offering will not leave those so impressed by their recent return in any way disappointed.
