US traditional doom outfit Purification to release new full-length album »Elphinstone« on October 21st; European tour dates for this November announced!

Portland, Oregon based traditional doom metal outfit Purification is gearing up to release their fifth full-length album »Elphinstone« on October 21st, 2023.

“»Elphinstone« marks the end point of the first phase of Purification’s assault on morality, religion, and life itself. A double-album that spans the creative work of almost 2 years, »Elphinstone« will be the heaviest and most exotic jewel yet in Purification’s heavy metal crown. Those who ignore this tome, do so at their own mortal peril. I an that I am…” – Our Dark Lord Crondor

Physical copies of tape and CD will be produced and distributed directly from the band, which will be only available in extremely limited quantities and initially will only be available at the Euro gigs. This information is subject to change.

If you are one of these wild freaks who love wax, there are currently no plans to release »Elphinstone« on vinyl. If that annoys you, take it up your favorite heavy metal label, as they all have abandoned their duties to produce our disgusting waste. We have hopes for a vinyl version to appear sometime next year. This information is subject to change.

Sound clips and general promo dregs to whet the greedy appetite of the impatient will follow in the coming months, as well as Euro gig information.

“The wicked man travaileth with pain all his days, and the number of years is hidden to the oppressor. A dreadful sound is in his ears: in prosperity The Destroyer shall come upon him. He believeth not that he shall return out of darkness, and he is waited for of the sword. He wandereth abroad for bread, saying, Where is it? he knoweth that the day of darkness is ready at his hand. TROUBLE and anguish shall make him afraid; they shall prevail against him, as a king ready to the battle…” ~ Job 15:20-23

  1. Pathetic!!!! One of the best doom bands on the planet and they don’t have a record deal. There is nothing wrong with being independent but having the backing of a true label like shadow Kingdom records goes a long way develops your growth. I really should not be surprised these so called “metal” labels refused to sign Chicago’s Avernus for over two decades. SMFh
