Argentine melodic death metal solo artist Plaguestorm will release his new studio album, titled “Purifying Fire“, on the German Noble Demon label on June 4, 2021.
Founded by Sebastián Pastor in early 2014, and with two releases that have taken the heavy scene by storm (featuring well known guest musicians such as Björn Strid / Soilwork, Mikael Sehlin / Engel, Fabio Bartoletti / Fleshgod Apocalypse and more), Argentinian solo artist Plaguestorm is about to get set for the release of his highly anticipated brand new studio album, due out on June 4th via Noble Demon. With a wide range of furious and raging melodic death metal and featuring nine tracks full of anger, desolation and sadness, the upcoming record “Purifying Fire” is in fact Pastor’s most mature release to date.
Not only musically, but also thematically Plaguestorm offers a work full of depth. After the already released single “Evolution Towards The Edge“, there is now a further foretaste of Plaguestorm‘s soon to be released album with the lyric video for the title track of the record.
“The title track of the album is a song with many changes of rhythm and full of melodies. It begins with quite an epic introduction, but soon everything gets out of control and the speed and blast beats arrive. It is a fast and aggressive song, but at the same time quite emotional since loaded with melancholic melodies and many clean voices, but also with many fierce voices. The lyrics are about the fires that have occurred in recent years in many parts of the world. Sometimes I do think that those who cause these great fires will make everything burn, burning ourselves, some people do not understand that their own actions are counterproductive for ourselves. Beyond all the damage, nature always prevails.” Sebastián Pastor comments.
As on his previous releases, on “Purifying Fire” Sebastián Pastor was in charge of composing and writing all the lyrics and music (as well as recording the acoustic and electric guitars, bass, drum prog, and keyboards / synthesizers / strings), while the vocals do come from Mikael Sehlin (Engel). For the guitar solos Plaguestorm got the support of Diego Martinez, as well as Pablo Roman, and a wonderful orchestral arrangement for the song “Purifying Fire” was made by Sebastián Nuñez Szymanski.
