Sin & Rapture
Purenform hails from the great north woods of NH. Their recently released "Sin and Rapture" album demonstrates their originality, intense riffs, headcrackin' percussion, and seductive lyrics. The alluring songs embrace a modern day hard rock feel yet are also melodic with hints of old school metal influences. Purenform was formed in early 2000 and began work on their first singles released on the 4 song EP, "No More". In late 2004, a new line-up was put into place and writing for new material with a new feel began. Purenform started recording in 2005 and released their first full length 12 song album titled "Sin and Rapture" in July 2006. The album was self-recorded, mixed and produced by Purenform. Former Third Degree basher Elvis Houle on the drums, along with former Stereo Type bassist Scott Richard lay down a tight rhythm section, while newcomer Mike Hall nails down the guitar section. Gritty topics with high intensity from founder, vocalist, and guitarist Greg Dobbin compliment the music. The group has opened for 6 Feet Under, Gilby Clarke, Brother Cane, Fastball, Sacred Reich, and 6 Gig. In August of 2006, Purenform played at Locobazooka held at the Tweeter Center in the Boston area with national acts Alice in Chains, Buckcherry, Powerman 5000, RA, Travis Meeks, Wicked Wisdom, to name a few, along with approx 50 other local bands.
