4 stars This my second-favourite Edge of Sanity release, after the mighty 'Crimson.' However, I warn anyone looking for the more prog aspects that featured on 'Crimson', you may want to avoid this. While it does have its progressive moments, 'Purgatory Afterglow' is mostly a straightforward death metal album, and a bloody good one at that. Death metal is a genre that plays host to a lot of imitators and repetitive bands; Edge of Sanity were not one of them. This album features amazing musicianship, vocals, and just some bloody amazing death metal songs!

I don't really need to tell you more than that. If you're not a death metal fan then I'd avoid this. If you are, and you're tired of all those bands that sound exactly the same as each other, get this. You will not regret it.
