Jon Schaffer's Purgatory - "Dracula" (audio)

Το συγκρότημα Purgatory ήταν η πρώιμη μορφή των Iced Earth. Για την ακρίβεια ο Jon Schaffer δημιούργησε το 1984 τους The Rose. Έναν χρόνο αργότερα τους μετονόμασε σε Purgatory. Κυκλοφόρησαν τρία demos και πριν την κυκλοφορία του τέταρτου μετονομάσθηκαν σε Iced Earth. Τα υπόλοιπα είναι ιστορία. Φέτος ο Schaffer αποφάσισε να επανεργοποιήσει τους Purgatory. Το αποτέλεσμα θα το ακούσουμε λίγο πριν τα Χριστούγεννα που θα κυκλοφορήσει το ομώνυμο ep...

Δελτίο τύπου: «Century Media Records is proud to announce a very special release: Iced Earth’s mastermind Jon Schaffer has teamed up with his old pals in Purgatory, the band that he originally founded in 1985, then later became Iced Earth, to record five tracks that were written between 1985 and 1987, now to be released as the “Purgatory” EP on December 21st.

All five tracks featured on the EP offer real US metal and perfectly capture the spirit of the mid 1980’s with a powerful production, rounded up by liner notes or comments of Jon Schaffer, Gene Adam, Greg Seymour and Bill Owen and a fitting cover artwork by David Newman Stump and Roy Young, known from their excellent work on Iced Earth’s latest album “Incorruptible”.

The greatest surprise might be Gene Adam, Iced Earth’s original singer who sang on the band’s self-titled debut album from 1990, who delivers his best vocal performance ever. The song “Dracula” can be checked out as of now. Enjoy!

Jon Schaffer’s Purgatory is for all Iced Earth maniacs out there, for all fans of real US metal in the vein of Omen, Liege Lord or Savage Grace, and for all metal fans in general - young and old. “Purgatory” is dedicated to Richard Bateman, the band’s original bass player, who passed away right before the EP went into production. Rest in peace, Richard.»
