4 stars This album is one of the most interesting I've heard lately. Imagine a KING CRIMSON even darker than it already is, add a gothic and oppressive atmosphere, and you've got a good initial idea of ​​what this album sounds like. David KERMAN wrote all the pieces for the album, in addition to taking charge of almost all the instruments: guitars, keyboards, drums, bass, vocals, and strange noises. On this occasion, the rest of the group consists of Sanjay KUMAR (keyboards), Keith MACKSOUD (bass), Mark McCOIN (percussion), Deborah PERRY (vocals) and Charles TURNER (piano). The album, as its title indicates, reflects on the purgatories we have in life, and deals with themes such as loneliness, alienation from modern life and the force of destiny. Most of the compositions are based on dense layers of guitars and keyboards, marked with KERMAN's characteristic arrhythmic bars, on which they put irregular melodies, sinister songs, and a lot of strange noises. Quite a hearing challenge, which of course, I do not recommend to those with delicate ears! - Martín HERNÁNDEZ
