Eye of Purgatory – The Rotting Enigma

eye of purgatory – the rotting enigma

I have to admit I’m always sceptic when I receive a project or band with Rogga’s name on it, because the similarities are quite on the surface with some of them, also I’m more of a quality than a quantity person. But I do have to say I admire the fact that he is the only one on the world who can fool the system of time. Or he is one of identical triplets who have the same musical taste and skills, otherwise I just can’t understand he is able to create so much music.

Eye of Purgatory is a new one for me, although there are similarities with other of his projects. All tracks are in the Swedish Death Metal sound, although this time it is more melodic than for example Paganizer. It is more in the vein of the melodic side of early Edge of Sanity, Demonical’s “Darkness Unbound” and Centinex “Diabolical Desolation”. An enjoyable album and I recommend the opening track “The Hause On The Edge Of Hell” which is a 10 minute track with an unadulterated Black Metal part in the middle and well executed. Not a bad album at all… (Ricardo)
