Song : Purgatory
Performer : Deathchain
Album : Sotajumala / Deathchain Split released, 2010
Deathchain is Finland death thrash metal. In the split released with Sotajumala, they covered Iron Maiden's classic "Purgatory". Again, as in Sotajumala, although coming from death metal background, the vocal is not in growling mode. This song with Paul Di'Anno in original form comes alive with crispy riffs and awesome drumming. The vocals mimic Di'Anno style in a good way. The breakdown with bass and drum maintained the spirit of this less performed Iron Maiden's classic.
One of great version of a rare Purgatory.
Styles: thrash / death metal
Faithful to Original version: yes
Re-Arrangements: 3.5/5 - (1=notes per notes, 5=extreme deviation)
Rhythm guitar: 4/5
Sound and Production: 4/5
