Nokia, Finland-based death metallers PURTENANCE will release their second album, Awaken From Slumber, on October 1st via Xtreem Music. A vinyl edition will be released in November.
After 2012's comeback EP Sacrifice The King which got mixed feelings from fans, the band not only continued working on new songs, but also added a second guitarist named Ville Nokelainen and entered studios in spring 2013 to record this new album, at the same time they offered their first shows in 20 years.
For those who expect a Member…II, they won't find it here. That album was done over 20 years ago with a different lineup. Awaken From Slumber shows the heaviest and darkest side of the band. This is how Purtenance sounds 2013. A fucking crushing, heavy and gloomy death metal with inhuman brutal vocals. Those who weren't satisfied with their previous EP should give it a listen to this new album cos they'll be gladly surprised!!
Awaken From Slumber tracklisting:
'What Was Hidden'
