Prog Reviewer
4 stars Edge of Sanity's Purgatory Afterglow shows that by this point in their career the band had become masters of balancing entrancing melodic passages with outbursts of unrestrained death metal brutality. This juxtaposition of melodic prog with crunching heaviness shows a high level of versatility on the part of every performer involved, right down to Dan Swano's singing style, whichs range from the most gutteral of death grunts to fairly capable clean vocals. Although the subsequent Crimson shows a significantly greater level of ambition on the part of the band, it was Purgatory Afterglow which proved they had the chops to put that ambition into effect.
Warthur | 4/5 |
