Purgatorio is the second part of the Dante trilogy that consists of the following albums:


The album was released on a double CD in March 2004 as a pre-release version available only via internet from the TDI site and selected mail order companies. Similar to Inferno, the official store release was issued a short time later, featuring slightly different cover artwork, including a barcode field that is missing on the pre-release copies. Furthermore the official release has a slightly different sound mix.


The music of Purgatorio is quite similar to that of Inferno but features more instrumental parts and has some stronger, sometimes even catchy melodies.


The Purgatory Painting

The cover artwork is based on an acryl painting by Bianca Froese-Acquaye, titled Still Life of Your Idea.

In March 2009 the album was re-released with different cover design as part of an extensive digipack series (consisting of a total of more than 60 CD and DVD releases) by the Germany based Membran record label.
