Format: Audio CD
A Plea For Purging caused a bit of a stir with the horrific looking cover art for `The Marriage Of Heaven And Hell' (2010). Only a year later they are back with their fourth album `The Life & Death Of A Plea For Purging'. The line-up remains as Andy Atkins (vocals), Blake Martin (guitar & clean vocals), John Wand (bass) and Aaron Eckermann (drums). Their style is still metalcore with brutal riffing, but also contains melodic parts and a mixture of clean and unclean vocals.

As suggested by the title, the topics covered are all taken from personal experience. There has not been a huge amount of publicity around this release and when you get to "My Song" you may understand why. But let's not jump ahead too soon as "The Life" asks you to take stock of your life. "It's hard to hold onto your ideals when you've lost your innocence/when the dreams you've caught aren't the dreams you've chased". Considering that this band conducts extensive tours, it should not come as a surprise that "Music City" is about being homesick and wanting to be back with your friends.

After a melodic interlude, they launch into "My Song" where Andy Atkins unflinchingly deals with tragic events "In the winter of 2010, I lost my mother to the barrel of her loaded gun/two weeks later my forgotten dad lost the battle of his life long suicidal run/he was dead to me years ago, but losing her was an eternal blow." This is followed by the acoustic "Skin & Bones" and the struggle within "Room For The Dead" is amplified by the mixture of melodic parts along with crushing guitar. "There's a battle for my soul between God, the devil, and rock n roll".

This is such an incredible album; from the artwork to the audio, it provides a truly enriching experience. They've gotten pretty djenty over the years, and this album is full of djen-djen-djenty goodness. I play this album whenever I'm having slumber parties with aliens, beating up prosperity gospel preachers, or recording my own metal album to get $ and chicks. Buy it today!

It took me a long time to come around to this band, but the last 2 cd's have been some of the best music I have ever heard. This band in my opinion is very underrated. I love the diversity in this project and it's just as hard hitting as anything else out there!
