Purgatory "Death Toll" song premiere

Midwest hardcore act Purgatory unveil a track from their forthcoming EP.


In case you missed the news, Nebraska hardcore band Purgatory will soon release a new 7" EP titled Gospel of War. The outing was recorded by Andrew Nelson (Harm's Way, Discourse), mastered by Brad Boatright (Xibalba, Code Orange), and will be available this fall via Escapist Records.

Formed in 2011, the five-piece band has played throughout the U.S., including shows with Terror, Merauder, and Ringworm. Their brand of metallic hardcore should appeal to anyone who likes their music appropriately brutal. But if you'd like sonic proof, just refer to our exclusive stream of the band's new song "Death Toll" below.

Meanwhile, to check out the band's upcoming tour dates and stay abreast of all things Purgatory, be sure to follow them on Facebook.

These rapscallions sure do make a lot of noise. But I can tell they are enjoying themselves and that's what counts. I'm proud of you Kyle. Love Me-ma

anonymous 9/24/2015 2:45:47 PM

I too have heard the singer is a pretty big pssy/f*ck boy.

anonymous 9/24/2015 2:56:42 PM

I partied with some of these dudes and blacked out. Woke up with Hep-C. The song is pretty good though!

anonymous 9/24/2015 3:11:55 PM

They finally managed to put out a song that wasn't a ripped off Bent Lofe riff. Congratulations?

anonymous 9/24/2015 3:12:33 PM

The singers an jerk not a pssy get your body part metaphors right.

anonymous 9/24/2015 3:54:43 PM

Turns out I am actually not a big fan of Prince's new sound...

anonymous 9/24/2015 4:22:09 PM

saw the singer of this band smash a drunk dudes head into a trailer and toss him into a car. True mosh warriors are stoked.

anonymous 9/24/2015 4:24:39 PM

Ironsights isn't stoked.

anonymous 9/24/2015 5:16:45 PM

I figured Ironsights would be too busy counting all of their GoFundMe cash to take a stance on the new track.

anonymous 9/24/2015 5:46:36 PM

I don't know who posted, But Ironsights is beyond stoked for these guys. It's great to see some Nebraska dudes getting their name out there!

anonymous 9/24/2015 6:48:56 PM

Lol at the little kids trying to start Nebraska beef. It's Nebraska. You're not tough. And rip off another band some more while you're at it.

anonymous 9/24/2015 6:51:18 PM

If this song had a dong, I'd let it put it in my dirt button.

anonymous 9/24/2015 7:35:46 PM

Another "cool guy" hardcore band were people who only care about their stupid Internet personality will rave over. f*cking yawn.

anonymous 9/24/2015 7:59:12 PM

I now have AIDS from listening to this gay ass f ag music for f aggots!

anonymous 9/24/2015 8:04:42 PM

I found the cover of Hoagy Carmichael's Dishpan Hands to be derivative, at best.

anonymous 9/24/2015 9:18:42 PM

no penis or salvation

anonymous 9/24/2015 11:58:16 PM

Shit sounds way too much like taproot for me

anonymous 9/25/2015 12:59:34 AM

Not Nu-Metal enough.

anonymous 9/25/2015 4:27:57 AM

Another "cool guy" hardcore band were people who only care about their stupid Internet personality will rave over. f*cking yawn. Gosh if I didn't know better I would think you're talking about members of No Zodiac...Oooohhh
