DESPISED ICON To Release 'Purgatory' Album In November

Canadian deathcore pioneers DESPISED ICON will release their sixth full-length album, "Purgatory", on November 15 via Nuclear Blast. The video for the first single and title track from the album, directed and produced by Jessy Fuchs of Les Films 37 Superkick, the video can be seen below.

DESPISED ICON comments: "At long last, we finally have new music for you! This is the most time we've ever spent writing and recording. We could go on and on about how this is our heaviest, fastest and most diverse album yet, but we'll let the music do the talking. We've been a band for 17 years and are thankful to have such a loyal and supportive fan base. Prepare for 'Purgatory'."

"Purgatory" was produced by Yannick St-Amand, Eric Jarrin and Alex Erian. The music was recorded by DESPISED ICON's former guitar player, now-front-of-house engineer Yannick St-Amand while the vocals were recorded by close friend Antoine Lussier of ION DISSONANCE. Mixing and mastering were completed by CRYPTOPSY's very own Christian Donaldson at The Grid in Montréal. For the album artwork, the band selected Eliran Kantor to create a piece that echoed the themes and concepts of "Purgatory".
