‘Purgatory’ was produced by Yannick St-AmandEric Jarrin and Alex Erian. The music was recorded by DESPISED ICON‘s former guitar player, now current front of house engineer Yannick St-Amand while the vocals were recorded by close friend Antoine Lussier of ION DISSONANCE. Mixing and mastering were completed by CRYPTOPSY‘s very own Christian Donaldson at The Grid in Montréal. For the album artwork, the band selected Eliran Kantor to create a piece that echoed the themes and concepts of ‘Purgatory.’

Without a doubt their most dynamic venture to date, DESPISED ICON have a fresh and energy-filled arrangement just waiting to see the light of day in the form of ‘Purgatory.’ For many years, they have laid the foundation of deathcore and spearheaded different sounds and movements within the genre.
