NEWS: DE PROFUNDIS (UK) Is Now Streaming New 2018 Album

The British death metal crew De Profundis in 2018 have their fifth album ready for your ears. Titled The Blinding Light of Faith, the album takes you through a physical session of bootcamp headbanging and air guitar, and the drumming to make those legs muscles get stronger. Gruff vocals, riffs from the left and from the right, a bit of melody to spice up the extreme metal, and the lyrics to grab your attention. One song is called "War Be upon Him" with the aural chaos that you would expect. The organized religions of Abrahamic traditions do not enjoy the approval of this British quintet, as you shall see.
Keep in mind that the band has been around for more than ten years and they are at this point doing death metal with a fearless attitude. They are not afraid to shred and do some melody and even throw you for a loop a time or two. Their horizons are bigger and this new album points to exciting directions. They have changed a lot from the old days, but this new album is full of energy, creative and features lots of music for banging your head.
Be sure to listen to the album at the link below. The album is recommended for fans of extreme metal that is skilled, intelligent, but that also does not forget the speed and intensity of death metal.
OFFICIAL: Long-running death metal band De Profundis have had an illustrious career. Over the years, they've kept perfecting their sound which incorporated progressive as well as melodic elements, and for their fifth full length, they've distilled only the best qualities into a massive death metal slab that's emotive yet powerful. 'The Blinding Light Of Faith' is a bold step forward for the band into heavier territories as they eschew long, winding songs and go straight for the jugular. With a new logo made by Gary Ronaldson (Misery Index, Benighted) and a gnarly album artwork by Alex Tartsus (Sinister, Depravity) depicting the band's anti-religious stance, De Profundis are confident of their direction and this promises to be their best album thus far. It's a quintessential death metal album that manages to showcase diversity without compromising on the heaviness.
About the album, the band says, "The Blinding Light of Faith is an album about three of the most merciless and bloodthirsty institutions in human history. There is no nation or people on this earth who haven't suffered under the savagery of at least one of the Abrahamic religions and to reflect that suffering we have made the heaviest, most aggressive record of our career."
Biography:Over the course of their career DE PROFUNDIS have grown and developed at a prodigious rate, their music blossoming into ever more imaginative and challenging forms, reaching out in a multitude of diverse directions, leaving limiting genre definitions and regulations shattered in their wake. Blending unfettered creativity, fierce ambition and outstanding musicianship the band have so far unleashed four magnificent albums, including the ground breaking The Emptiness Within and the stunning Kingdom Of The Blind.
Kingdom Of The Blind, which was released through Wicker Man Recordings, a new subsidiary of ATMF, in 2015 was afforded lavish praise from critics across the world and hailed as undoubtedly the greatest De Profundis album to date. The torrent of glowing reviews lead to prestigious live appearances for the band, as they were invited to play with Enslaved, Grand Magus, Gorgoroth, Kampfar and Gehenna. In 2016 they also appeared at the Incineration Festival in London, one of the major extreme music meetings on the global calendar.
2017 marks the 10th Anniversary since the release of De Profundis’ first album, Beyond Redemption and a yearlong celebration of major events is well underway. The band started the year by hitting the road around the UK with Norwegian black metal kings Taake and renowned weavers of atmospheric darkness Fen. This tour marked the first appearance in the De Profundis live set of new song ‘An Orgy Of Grotesqueries’, a masterpiece of old school death metal, performed with De Profundis’ trademark skill and ingenuity. With the tour complete, ‘An Orgy Of Grotesqueries’ was then released as a powerful video single, with the dark and disturbing imagery created by Andy Pilkington of Very Metal Art (Flotsam And Jetsam).
With the new video still making waves with metal sites across the net, De Profundis were back on the road again for a full European tour with David Vincent of Morbid Angel’s new band, I Am Morbid. The package was completed by gore legends Necrophagia, US pagan metal warriors Helsott and openers The Heretic Order and saw De Profundis take their anniversary celebrations to Italy, Switzerland, Germany and The Netherlands.
Upon their return from Europe it became clear that ‘An Orgy Of Grotesqueries’ was not destined to be just an addictive addition to the live set and the soundtrack to a chilling video release. The next announcement from the De Profundis camp was that they would be releasing a celebratory career retrospective album, entitled Decayed: 2007 – 2017. Decayed... is to be released exclusively with issue 079 of the world’s number one extreme music magazine, Zero Tolerance – no fewer than 10,000 copies heading out to every corner of the globe.
With album number five already recorded and plans for an autumn headline tour of the UK in the works, De Profundis’ 2017 celebrations look set to run and run... “...every song is a brilliantly constructed whole...” 5.5/6 Zero Tolerance Magazine
