Rating: 9 The only Edge of Sanity album that can look the Crimson brothers in the eyes (for one second).

  The Iron Maiden of death metal. Epic melodies, grandiose songs.

Dan Swanö actually sort of looks like Bruce Dickinson in a few photos too!

Rating: 8 This is a great album, I sort of prefer Crimson more, but this album has so many damn awesome songs. Dan is the man.

Sami Nerberg possibly.

Rating: 9 My favourite melodic/progressive death metal album of all time. Along with Crimson, for sure, but Crimson sounds more consistent while Purgatory Afterglow sounds more diverse.

The album booklet says that vocals were recorded by Sami Nerberg and Dread.

I sure don't.

Rating: 9 Absolutely phenomenal album IMO and probably their best actual album.

Period 1992-96 did indeed have some phenomenal stuff though I discovered it later in the 1990s. In 1992-96 it was Guns N Roses, Metallica, AIC, Iron Maiden, Slayer, Sepultura etc.

Wasn't until about 1997-98 I discovered the world of more underground metal.

Rating: 10 Lit man this is the profit of being born in 1977 i am really proud to buy freshly recorded and reviewed longplays in early 90's, i will create my list of favourite probably will be interested for you.

Rating: 7 Not a particularly special album in their discog imo. Suffers very much from the fact the first couple of songs are great but plummets rapidly after. Generally not a good sounding album either I don't think.

Tempting, but I'd have to decline. I don't care for... any of those bands, really, sans Edge Of Sanity. I mean it in terms of not remembering those bands you listed "ruling the world between 1992-1996." What dimension are you living in that those bands were suddenly popular?

Rating: 10 Lit i checked you profile and understand that you are from US and mostly you are interesting in your region so european market can be a little bit wild for you Trust me that in Europe this bands had more respect than Rob Zombie, W.A.S.P., or Queensrÿche

While I still find that incredibly difficult to believe, I don't live in Europe so I really couldn't care less.
Here in the greatest country on earth, they were barely recognized then and they're only recognized by the trve metalheads now. Deservedly so in some cases. The above mentioned bands are much more respected than most Eurodeath. So stop being a know-it-all, know-it-all.
