The second album from Finland's Purtenance is finished and will be released through Xtreem Music on October 1st, with a vinyl version to follow later this year.
After 2012's comeback EP "Sacrifice the King," the band added second guitarist Ville Nokelainen and entered the studio in spring 2013 to record this new album entitled "Awaken From Slumber." Xtreem Music comments:
"For those who expect a 'Member…II,' they won't find it here. That album was done over 20 years ago with a different line up. The 'Awaken From Slumber' album 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!"
The track listing is as follows:
3. What Was Hidden

After the 2011 re-issue through Xtreem Music of 1992 debut album "Member of Immortal Damnation," Finnish death metallers Purtenance decided to reform. The band is more motivated than ever and has already inked a deal with Xtreem Music for the release of a new mini CD as well as upcoming albums, the first of which is expected for 2013.
The new mini CD is already recorded and entitled "Sacrifice the King," featuring 6 songs in the style Purtenance is well known for. The current line-up consists of original members Juha Ranniko (guitars) and Harri Salo (drums) plus new member Ville (bass/vox).
"Sacrifice the King" is expected for release this coming June with a vinyl version coming later, and the band is already working on 12 new songs for a sophomore album. Check out the new song "Demon Gods" in the player below. More...
