Purest of Pain reveal new music video “Vessels

Unleashing their debut album “Solipsis” earlier this month on March 1st to follow their 2013 single “Momentum” and 2011 EP “Revelations In Obscurity”, Dutch melodic quintet Purest of Pain (Ft. Members of Delain) have a treat for fans with their new video “Vessels” serving up a delicious platter of brutality,

ABOUT “SOLIPSIS” ALBUM

Combining Scandinavian metal influences with groove, ambiance, tone and melody, Purest of Pain is a force to be reckoned with. The band features lead guitarist and main songwriter Merel Bechtold (Delain, MaYaN and The Gentle Storm, Anneke van Giersbergen) with bassist Frank van Leeuwen, vocalist J.D. Kaye, guitarist Michael van Eckis along with Delain drummer Joey de Boer recently joining their ranks.

Their new album “Solipsis” has been seven years in the making for the band, from the writing process up to the final mastering to launching a successful online crowd funding campaign on Indiegogo that raised over 18,000 Euros (thank you video here). In addition, over the years Purest of Pain increased their recording funds through live performances, opening for such bands as Opeth, Textures, Suicide Silence, Unearth and Attack Attack! plus an unforgettable slot at Wacken in 2014.

“Solipsis” is 14 tracks of brutality blended with groove and emotion produced by Merel Bechtold with recording done at Mantis Audio Studio (Delain) and mastering by Jens Jorgen (Opeth, Arch Enemy, Soilwork).

Guitarist Merel Bechtold comments:

“‘Solipsis’ is a guitar oriented record, is has been recorded as organic as possible: partly at home, partly at Mantis Audio Studio. The song ‘E.M.D.R.’ is written by fellow guitarist Michael van Eck. All the other songs were summoned by myself. The lyrics are written by vocalist J.D. Kaye. And even though the music is at times technical and challenging, it’s undeniably driven by relentless groove, enhanced by hugely melodic passages, wonderful tone and moments of ambient clarity.”
