Biography

Hommersåk, Rogaland, Norway (2003 – 2007, 2008 – present)

Purified in Blood is a Norwegian band that formed in Hommersåk, Rogaland, Norway in 2003. The band had two diverse vocalists in Hallgeir Skretting Enoksen and Glenn Cato Rasmussen. Stig Skog Andersen handled bass guitar, Tommy Svela and Sander Loen handled guitar duties, while Anders Mosness played the drums. They released their first EP Last Leaves Of A Poisoned Tree in 2004. Their first full-length Reaper of Souls followed in 2006. Due to differences in regards to their initial common straight edge philosophy the band decided to pull the plug in 2007.

After almost a year and a half later, Purified in Blood reformed in 2008 with shows at the Norwegian Hove festival and a concert with Madball in Oslo. 2010 was the year Purified in Blood returned with fire. The new album Under Black Skies will always be a milestone representing a fresh start with no genre shackles. Heaven knows the horizon has expanded to the unlimited regarding making music and Under Black Skies is the result of this. The new album unveils a band that has developed ferociously since their first full-length Reaper of Souls in 2006. Heavier than ever before, these Norwegians are ready to conquer and destroy all that comes in their way. Still contributing to the awareness of our earths withering condition; they continue to dethrone injustice with all their strength through their lyrics and apperance. Recording Under Black Skies took place, with producer Ashley Stubbert behind the table, just outside Stavanger, their hometown. With the heavy swells from the North Sea being their nearest neighbor they laid down the tracks that later would be mixed by Matt Bayles (Mastodon, Isis, Botch) in Seattle, US.
