album review : Necromantaeon (2011) – Purgatory

album : Necromantaeon

artist : Purgatory

genre : Death Metal

year : 2011

Not a name that has been making waves in the death metal category, German band Purgatory has been constantly releasing full-length albums. Could be because they want everyone to be aware of their presence, or maybe they are doing it just because they know they have it them. Yes, they do. But the problem is they aren’t unique enough as they make it visible with their sixth album Necromantaeon. I do not hate the album but I did not enjoy it either.

I’ll put it like this. There is the death metal genre and there are infinite death metal bands. Now if I pick up Necromantaeon and blast it I would not be able to say that this is a Purgatory release simply because the growling, the drumming and the riffing do not dare to differ from the usual. It’s like the legendary bands have started their own tutoring sessions and several bands are getting trained under them so they can start playing the same stuff. Not something to be proud of, and that is my honest opinion after listeing to Necromantaeon.
