Born in 2004. Buried alive in 2009. Resurrected in 2018.
Belgian Black Metallers PARAGON IMPURE are set on spewing forth blasphemy and perversion again! The new and second fulllength “SADE” will be unleashed via Ván Records on 2nd November.
In December 2017 and after eight years of silence, Noctiz (the project’s founder and driving force) breathed new life into PARAGON IMPURE and teamed up with drummer Svein (LUGUBRUM) to prepare for the re-recordings of the second album, which wasn’t completed in 2009 due to technical and personal setbacks. Thus, the initially entitled “The Fall Of Man” transformed into “SADE,” a homage to the legacy of Marquis de Sade. PJ Turlinckx became the band’s third member and produced “SADE” at his studio, while the mastering was handled by Jéremie Bézier (EMPTINESS, ex-ENTHRONED) at Blackout Studio.
“Let no one accuse me of being evil’s apologist; let no one say that I seek to inspire wrongdoing or to blunt remorse in the hearts of wrongdoers: my sole purpose throughout these endeavors is to articulate thoughts which have gnawed at my consciousness since I first was able to reason; that these thoughts might be in conflict with the thoughts of some other persons, or of most other persons except me, is not, I believe, sufficient reason to suppress them. As to those susceptible souls who might be “corrupted” by exposure to my writings, I say, so much the worse for them. I address myself only to men who are capable of examining with an objective eye everything before them. Such men are incorruptible.” – Donatien Francois Alphonse de Sade, “La Philosophie dans le Boudoir”, 1795
