Originally Edge of Sanity wanted to release two separate EP's: ''Purgatory''; the more traditional death metal oriented songs & ''Afterglow''; the experimental/hard rock songs. However Black Mark warned them it would be a huge financial & career risk so the band opted to release all of the material together as a full length. A music video was made for song "Black Tears". Comes as a silver CD with black writings and a black CD with gold writings. Layout & typography : The Graphic Beat, Berlin, Germany.

Edge of Sanity were quite busy in the early part of their career and as if it wasnīt enough that they had released one album per year from 1991-1994 (including this one), they also had time to record and release the "Until Eternity Ends" EP earlier in 1994. The material on "Purgatory Afterglow" was originally meant to have been released on two seperate EPs. One EP (titled "Purgatory") featuring the most death metal oriented material, and one EP (titled "Afterglow") featuring the more progressive/hard rock/metal oriented tracks . No matter what musical style they play on the album, Edge of Sanity deliver the material with great skill, conviction, and passion. Dan Swanöīs growling vocals are intelligible and commanding and his clean vocals (which there are more of on this album than on any of the predecessors) are also performed with great skill. Swanö has a strong and distinct sounding voice and he sounds less restrained and more confident delivering his clean vocals than on the previous releases.
Edge of Sanity, in my opinion, were one of the best bands of their time, they really took Death Metal to a new level and transported the listener to their own world in their songs, this album is a perfect example of why they are so unique and respected in the metal scene, although it will always be overshadowed by the bands epic ‘. Crimson’, ‘Purgatory Afterglow’ is still a beast of an album, worthy of sitting alongside ‘Crimson‘.
