Canadian deathcore pioneers Despised Icon are back with their sixth full length album, Purgatory. Not a theological band by any means, Purgatory is meant to represent the mortal experience of being trapped in a suffering state and left to brood; stuck in notions of great loss and permanent scars that will ultimately define you. It is from these incidents that humans grow. Not only do the themes of Purgatory reflect the personal and internal struggles of the band, but the struggles of modern day society as a whole, and the current lack of compassion amongst mankind.
