    Indian throws a temper tantrum on From All Purity that goes beyond petulance and into an appropriately pure state of sanity-stomping anguish, purging the demons with sulfuric acid and a nail-studded baseball bat.

    This is an album whose every layer seems customized, whose every crease seems deliberate. That calculation doesn’t seem to have mitigated Indian’s power at all. Rather, this is the strongest they’ve ever sounded and the smartest they’ve ever sounded.

    Celeste put out a sludgy doom-inflected black metal record; this year, Indian turned the equation on its head and put out a blackened doom record, that's equally depraved, nihilistic, and crucial for any fan of truly heavy music.

    From All Purity at once epitomizes Indian’s sound and represents a leap forward into new levels of intensity.

    It’s all the necessary B-adjectives–bludgeoning, brutal, burly--but it’s something else too; Bloodcurdling.

    From All Purity will never have the impact of Earth’s second album, Khanate’s self-titled debut, Take As Needed For Pain by Eyehategod or Sleep’s drone doom bible Dopesmoker, but it contains all the important ingredients that made those records so essential.

    It's six tracks bleed with conviction and emotional commitment, while a sense of austere grace adds depth to the jagged musical content. [21 Dec 2013, p.69]

    Oh boy, another overrated and overblown Black metal release. An 86? Really? It is a decent album but goodness, way too high a rating. This is,Oh boy, another overrated and overblown Black metal release. An 86? Really? It is a decent album but goodness, way too high a rating. This is, i think, Their best release yet, definitely their most hellish. But not worth an 86, damn. Expand
