Official press release: "Under Black Skies," the second full album from Norwegian sextet Purified In Blood, is set to be released on June 7th via Spinefarm Records UK. The follow-up to "Reaper Of Souls" (2006), this 11-track outing has been produced by Ashley Stubbert (a U.S. producer/engineer/mixer who moved to Norway two years ago) in the band's hometown of Stavanger, and mixed by Matt Bayles (Mastodon, Isis, Botch) over in Seattle. Since first coming together in 2003, PIB have toured throughout Europe and the US, shared stages with the likes of Slayer, Mastodon and In Flames, and picked up the occasional award along the way (i.e. the Alarm Award for Best Live Act in 2006). Now, the six are back with a new album that, in the words of guitarist Tommy Svela, "reflects a decade of terror and decay. It drags you down and rips you apart. With 'Under Black Skies,' we have evolved musically and lyrically into something we are really proud of."
