Band Biography

If anything can be said for The Puritan, it is that they do not care for fame, fortune or pretension. They care about music for the sake of music. Despite hailing from a variety of infamous Finnish metal acts, The Puritan remain shrouded in mystery and would much rather let their bludgeoning and suffocatingly heavy music do the talking than let their reputations precede them.

Clocking in at just over an hour, “Lithium Gates” compiles the band’s two previous LPs – “The Puritan” and “The Black Law”, both of which were in such high demand that they are now out of print. The band is clearly unafraid to experiment and push the musical envelope as evidenced by the use of scrap-iron and various items of ‘junk’ as instruments.

Creating atmospheres darker than any of their contemporaries, “Lithium Gates” is an oppressive take on mankind and the death of modern culture. The lyrics are riddled with metaphors regarding Western culture and its plague-like influence on the world, but rather than explain their views in depth, The Puritan would prefer to distance themselves from the surrounding world and create music that can stand on its own.

“Lithium Gates” certainly delivers what some would consider a harsh message to mankind, but it is up to the listener to decipher precisely what that message is.
