Middling Finnish death metal band Purtenance have an four track EP titled Paradox of Existence (sounds like Ripper‘s Experiment of Existence a bit too much?) coming out on September 12th on Spanish underground label Xtreem Music.
The preview track, “In the End Only Death Will Remain”, embedded at the bottom of this article sounds like a more boring, more Autopsy influenced, stale version of Demigod. The riffs are not all-together bad though but do not fit together well at all. I doubt the EP will be decent. I enjoyed listening to “In the End Only Death Will Remain” twice but the track is rather disparate and not very memorable and just makes me want to listen to Bolt Thrower and Demigod – Slumber of Sullen Eyes for the thousandth time instead of the rest of Paradox of Existence.
Legendary Finnish death metal masters Purtenance are back with a new release! It’s a four-song EP entitled Paradox of Existence, and it’s scheduled for international release on September 12th through Xtreem Music!
After returning to a five-piece lineup, Purtenance began to work on new tunes, which were recorded during the first half of 2017, and are now released as an EP that follows their trademarked heavy old-school Finnish death metal for which they’re known since their inception in 1989. Cover artwork was once again made by Chris Moyen, who’s done every Purtenance cover artwork since their debut album, Member of Immortal Damnation, in 1992.
Paradox of Existence will be released on CD format on September 12th via Xtreem Music. The first track from the EP, “In the End Only Death Will Remain,” can be streamed at Xtreem’s official YouTube channel HERE as well as the label’s Soundcloud HERE. Cover and tracklisting are as follows:
- In the End Only Death Will Remain
- Vicious Seeds of Mortality
- Paradox of Existence
- Nekro Orgy
