Crimson Relic - Purgatory's Reign (1996)


Death Metal / Doom Metal

Recorded and mixed in July 1995 at Grand Avenue Studios, Santa Ana, California.
Co-produced by Crimson Relic.
Crimson Relic deserves "in a way", credit for plowing the old school death metal furrow back in 1996, when there were almost no retro/revival death metal bands. These guys kept the torch burning through the darkest times of the genre.
