Music Review: A Plea for Purging: The Marriage of Heaven and Hell



So I have been listening to A Plea for Purging's new album titled, The Marriage of Heaven and Hell, for a couple weeks now. First and foremost I'd like to say they have come a long way. Depravity, their release prior to Heaven and Hell, had some excellent ideas musically however they weren't executed quite as well as they could have been. I digress however, A Plea for Purging is a METAL band, so stop right thar if you don't dig. They are also a Christian band, which should not be a turnoff to how awesome they are. Even if you aren't religious their musicality on this album alone is reason to appreciate it. The album opens with a crazy preacher rant into some nice blast beats with a real break-chorus type feel. Don't forget the ugly chords, these guys love to throw those in. By ugly I don't mean power chords, I mean harmonically incorrect chords. Another really interesting thing about this album is their incorporation of some really technical parts. It honestly reminded me of Meshuggah on a smaller scale. Oh and the singing, they have some aweeesome clean vocals throughout the album, not a ton mind you, but enough to make you go 'wow'. I'd give this album a 9/10 it's really worth the listen.
