Sorry everyone for the month hiatus. We have all been facing tough times lately and like everybody else, this site has taken a hit during this pandemic. With most of us here being out of work, struggling to get by and dealing with the outside world problems, this site runs off of what we can try and do as well as from the help of those who support us. As of now, we can not financially support this site with […]

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 […]
I don’t personally write many editorials on here since I’m sure not many of you want to hear my rantings and droning stories but since it is winter right now and one of best seasons for metal, this is the perfect time to talk about…well…metal. Many albums are coming out this month to close out 2014 but do we actually think about what genres and bands fit our cold and cozy moods? Is your soul freezing and frostbitten like Norwegian […]
Here at the secret The Metal Foundry lair (well pretty much just myself with a laptop at anywhere I can plug in and get wifi) came up with a brilliant idea to really introduce some amazing bands I have heard from all over the world. I was thinking of creating a Kickstarter to put out a compilation album featuring some new talents from all over the world. The plan would be to have it featured as a name your price […]
Blackforestmag.com made such a wild post on Monday, Apr. 28, that it had to be researched. Sure enough, this is not a hoax- there was a lamb named Batlam born in Nærbø, Norway on Easter Sunday whose fur looks like corpse paint. There is no way that could have worked out better! I mean really, a satanic looking lamb born on the day Jesus may or may not have risen from the dead? Doubly so given lamb being the symbol […]

My friend Resington on YouTube posted this video last year to show how he records music on GarageBand for all you metal artists who would like to either start recording or want to get a better sound. Hope his video helps and please subscribe to him!
There has been much discussion over religion in all types of music, especially metal but can Christianity really break through into the black metal scene? Bands like Antestor and Horde wanted to prove just that in the 1990s. The exact start of the Unblack Metal movement is still disputed to this day.
