"Baton Rouge black metal project Barghest return in 2014 with a new full-length, The Virtuous Purge. On this follow up to 2011’s Untitled LP (Gilead Media/Howling Mine), and 2012 split 12″ with False (Gilead Media/Mirror Universe), Barghest emerge from the shadows with a refined sound and an increased intensity.

Though their past recordings were deeply rooted in the realm of lo-fi black metal, with The Virtuous Purge, Barghest have shifted their focus, crafting subtle hints of death and doom throughout their new work without abandoning the harsh anti-human/anti-life aesthetic. This amalgam was brought to life under the guidance of recording engineer James Whitten, who worked with Barghest to tread this new sonic ground. Long-time fans will notice the significant change in recording fidelity as James and Barghest have taken a different approach to production, all the while remaining true to the vicious aggression and atmosphere for which Barghest are known."
