THE WAY OF PURITY “Equate” /Digipack CD/

The second full-length album by Melodic Death Metal/Metalcore band.
There are few bands with a common purpose beyond that of the music they create, who ardently stick to that purpose and become a genuine force for change. Animal Liberation Front supporters The Way Of Purity (all the members are vegan), are one such band. Their sophomore album "Equate" features ten tracks of brutally Blackened and detuned Metalcore with synth flourishes, married with empowering empathetic lyrics, all captured in a vicious bass-laden analog recording.
The Way Of Purity is a mysterious band. The musicians, apart from the female singer, hide their faces, names and nationality. They are convinced that in the future animals and men must be equal and they fight for this objective. The “Equate” is about this subject and moreover, it denounces one of the cruelest sins of our times: speciesism. That is a theory according to which men are superior to animals and justifies acts like vivisection.
After an EP, released some months ago, The Way Of Purity has recorded this new full-length that keeps intact the main features of the band. It is opened by “Artwork of Nature”, a violent, very aggressive track that mixes Blackish riffs, female growling vocals and a little bit of melody that makes everything more dramatic. In “Death Abound Everywhere”, Death Metal guitars are mixed with just a hint of Electronic, quite Groovy. “Eleven” showcases female clean vocals and they are really beautiful, warm and elegant; they shine through the record and are a nice change to the usual growl. The music is less brutal, a bit more “symphonic”. Generally, the songs are very short, but it's really good, because this way you can enjoy the true essence, the brutality without getting lost into details. Quite different from the rest is “The Last Darkest Night”, a slow/mid-tempo song compared to the others (apart from the usual Black Metal moment) and it has an interesting bridge.
The Way of Purity has managed to write an album which is catchy, but aggressive, which delivers a message but it is able to entertain a wide audience!
