Purified in Blood

Purified in Blood (PiB) is a Norwegian metal band from Hommersåk, near Sandnes. They started up in the winter of 2003, and dissolved in January 2007 though on April 25, 2008 they announced that they now are back. They play metal with roots in hardcore.

History

In the summer of 2004 they released the EP Last Leaves of a Poisoned Tree on the American underground-label New Eden Records. Later that year they won the Zoom-awards together with Rumble in Rhodos and Vishnu. As a result of this the band got to play during by:Larm and Øya Festival in 2005, and also tour around the country. They also toured several times in United States and Europe with bands like Undying, Heaven Shall Burn and God Forbid.

January 21, 2006 the band won the Alarm Award 2006 for Best Live Band, competing with huge Norwegian bands such as Madrugada, Kaizers Orchestra and Turbonegro.

The Break-Up

The band dissolved in January 2007. There was reportedly many reasons for the breakup, but one of them, and maybe the most significant one, is that several of the members had decided no longer to follow the Straight Edge lifestyle, which had been an important theme in the band's material. The band announced the break-up with this blog on their MySpace-site:

We want to thank each and everyone of you who supported us and helped us along the way.
-Glenn, Hallgeir, Sander, Tommy, Stig & Anders
"Good things never last"

The Comeback

April 25, 2008 the Purified in Blood-members announced that they were gathered again to play together, this time stronger, harder and better than ever.

The same way that the dissolvation was advertised, they gave notice of their reunion on MySpace:

Purified in Blood Reunion
To all our friends out there; we are back and we are stronger than ever!
This summer we will appear at the Norwegian Hove festival and at a show with the mighty Madball in Oslo. Stay tuned for news throughout the summer.
HORNS!
- Glenn, Hallgeir, Sander, Tommy, Stig & Anders
