You'd never guess how great this unassuming little record is looking at the terrible fucking artwork, but this one's a ripper. Purgatoria weren't around for long, but they're one of the great unsung bands of the late 90s. Their five tracks on here are straight-up death metal (the good kind) in style and have the beefy production to match. It blasts away with the kind of unrelenting speed and intensity that makes you wonder why nobody talks about them today. Grot aren't quite as good, but stacked up against Purgatoria, they didn't stand a chance. Their hybrid of death metal and grindcore sounds a bit dated today. It's noisier/sloppier in execution and the recording fluctuates somewhat, but it's a fun listen. Their drummer went on to form a band called Brutal Insanity. This record was mastered really low, so the record plays with a lot of surface noise. It was co-released by Agitate-96 (go fuck yourself, Richard) and Pentagrandma Records in 2000 in a one-time pressing of 512. #purgatoria #grot #grindcore #agitate96 #pentagrandma
7" Pick Ups from Ft. Wayne on Saturday. Found a good selection of some early 90's Crust, Grind and Powerviolence along with mid period Priest and an original DEVO "Whip It" single. I still love EP's, that why I always like to release them. They never sell as good as LP's but people can be lazy and that's a bummer. Split 7"s are a gray way to hear new bands, not as cheap as it used to be $3/4 a record put manufacturing g cost is way more than back then also. We paid about $5+ each on our 7"s just to have them made. Back in 2000 I think it cost $1.50 each and that included a 6 page booklet... #judaspriest #devo

Casually living out my Flashdance dreams in the middle of dancing in the woods and rolling in the mud. Excited to see what the future holds for this wildly sinful (and dirty) piece. #purgatoria #seniorproject #rutheatreanddance
