Happy birthday to this website! It was a year ago that this website was created as The Metal Foundry. It was a great first year meeting new bands, covering great albums and sharing news from amongst the metal community and thank you all who have tuned in and read the reviews, interviews and news! We here at Metal Purgatory are striving for more bands to interview, events to review and always looking for new music! Lets kick back and celebrate the great year we have shared together with some good ol’ folk metal and some great brew! Cheers metal family!
