International band The Way Of Purity announced their mission:
The Way Of Purity are a group of people who have come together with the common goal of taking action. Animals liberation from the anthropocentric lie is the push that made us move and we have taken the step of forming a music project with the specific purpose of spreading this message.
We will always stay away from the fame, the scene and the music business since we will return back in darkness one day.
This is the reason why a lot of people out there dont support us or change their minds in the same moment they understand that we are extreme, incorrect and maybe violent in real life We are not that band they would like us to be, we are not clean and nice like all musicians out there: we said that since the beginning.
We are just working to destroy humanitys worse disease, that is called specism, as we consider it equal to Nazism.
Everyone in The Way Of Purity will follow this path because music is just a possibility for us. Too much attention on the band and not enough on the reason could make EQUATE our last album; on the other hand, if you all understand what we are trying to say you will keep us alive as a music project.
Most of the people compromise, some dont.
Talk to you again with the first song, album cover, tracklist. Till then, fight with us.
