Highlights on Purified

The first notes on the album sound cold-blooded and ultra electronic. The track ‘Upgrade’ hammers its way forward epically beat by beat. A strong opener for a more or less debut. The second is the fantastic single ‘Death Blooms‘, which stays in your ears with electric guitar and a pretty catchy chorus.

The track ‘Radar’ reminded me somehow of the new tracks of ‘Duran Duran’. A very emotional vocal which is fantastic supported by a guitar. If you want to experience an 80s nostalgic feeling without leaving the modern age, you should listen to the song ‘Fear’. At least for me the song felt like a journey into the past. Also the song ‘Solitude (You Will)’ is fortunately breaking out of the typical song scheme. Beautiful song!

A fair verdict

The album ‘Purified’ is without any question a wonderful album. Personally I miss a little bit the variety on the album. But that doesn’t necessarily have to be interpreted in a netagative way. If you like the sound of one track, then you will certainly love the whole album. I definitely recommend to listen to it. Zoodrake have delivered a first class Synthiepop/Electropop album with ‘Purified’.
