Limited triple vinyl LP pressing. Days of Purgatory is a 1997 release by heavy metal giants Iced Earth. It is a collection of remixes and remakes from previous albums. Most of the songs from the Enter The Realm EP, Iced Earth, and Night Of The Stormrider were re-sung by Matt Barlow, and on some of the songs the drums and bass were redone. It also contains rough mixes of several songs from Burnt Offerings with the opening to the titular track re-recorded. The album cover features artwork of the Chaos Comics character Purgatori. The reason for the album was to improve the original songs, create nostalgia for older fans and introduce newer fans to Iced Earth's older work. Days of Purgatory was the last new release from the band featuring longtime guitarist Randall Shawver, and the first to feature bassist James MacDonough and drummer Brent Smedley.
