||Purge, a Christian metal band from Kenner,
Louisiana puts forth what I believe is their first album, which is
self-titled. I know some of you people out there think that, "Oh
great, another crappy religious band." This is not true. They
have some really catchy riffs throughout the CD. But the lyrics get
boring after a while as much as those satanic bands that all they
talking about is how they hate god. The music is composed pretty well,
if it had a little better production it might be really good, it's
a little sloppy. There are 37 minute of metal on this CD with 10 tracks.
Their sound is like an Alice In Chains crossed with a straight ahead
metal band. Sometimes the vocals sounds almost exactly like Layne
Staley. There really weren't any songs that jumped out at me, but
all songs have their strong points. Im sure Purge will have another
CD out in the future, if they have a little bit better of a direction,
I wouldn't be surprised if some record label picks them up. But for
now they are put on my back burner.
