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. The band belives that it is from these incidents that humans grow.
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.
“This one was really an outlet for our creativity and at the same time there’s so much influence from what’s going on around us and what’s going on in the world. It translated into the music and that’s why it’s more extreme - the world is more extreme, so the music is as well. There are more musical elements too, more guitar solos, more melody, there’s even a bass solo,” explains guitarist Eric Jarrin.
For many years, the band 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.
