Germany based Doom Metal band Purple Dawn released the single “Old Fashioned Black Madness” taken from the upcoming new album “Peace & Doom Session Vol.II” which will be released on March 11, 2022 via Electric Valley Records. Watch the official video through the Youtube player below:
It’s always the balance between things. Hard riffing energy and heart hitting melody, good and bad, high and low, future and past and sometimes far and beyond. That’s why Purple Dawn call their music “Peace & Doom.”
Heavily inspired by bands like Pentagram and Black Sabbath, Purple Dawn offers a perfect blend of Classic Doom Rock and modern Slow-Metal like Windhand, REZN or even Mastodon. In contrast to the majority of bands in the genre, Purple Dawn has got a variety of styles in their songs – it’s like putting on a Led Zeppelin record where no song sounds like the other. Keep your eyes open and praise Iommi.
“Death To A Dying World is about these times and times again when the burden of reality hits you down and ties all the lies you hear every day into a dark and depressed atmosphere in your life. Down that rabbithole you see the intrinsic evil that lurks inside humanity since forever and you don’t wanna be a part of. An existence to harm and waste all in the name of the maker. Full of sin, blinded by gold. Hard to imagine, a catch 22 and you can’t run out, but it starts over and over again. That isn’t the world worth obtaining. This world is dying – so let it die.
Death To A Dying World is written like a circle of that evil. Starting heavy and dark with plaintive lyrics, it falls into calmness after the first chorus with nothing left but a heartbeat. Maybe it’s the last, maybe it’s the beginning of something new. The song builds up to full energy again and takes you up and down to contradictory parts like the life you live every day. And in the end it returns to the main theme and will start over again.”
