For 30 years Profanatica has been bringing their blasphemy laden Black Metal to the world and here is the latest in their offensively brilliant offering to the world.
Aragon Amori, Paul Ledney, and Brett Makowski formed Profanatica back in 1900 and is influenced by Venom, Necrovore, and Bathory, the three set out on their Blackened voyage, releasing four full-length albums and copious amounts of demos, splits, and compilations the band split until Ledney found two new members to bring the second vile offering of the band. The debut album Profanatitas de Domonatia was release some 17 years post inception.
If you look down the tracklist you will see that the content of the album is not going to be for the faint of heart or easily offended and as soon as the track opens with slicing chainsaw guitars and drums that sound painful, you know that this is going to be as Black as Black Metal can be. Then the lyrics are spewed in a blood-curdling fashion that sounds utterly wonderful.
As we reach ‘Broken Jew’ the darkness has fully descended and you can feel yourself getting colder as the subject matter isn’t the easiest and is matched by the disgusting noises created by that constant droning guitar that worms its sickening way into your head and starts to make you question yourself.
‘Mocked, Scourged and Shit Upon’ continues this tirade of offensive yet utter stunning Black Metal that has to be experienced to be appreciated. Musically it is as good as you will hear and vocally as disturbing and night terror provoking as you could imagine.
The drums are constantly there gnawing away at your resolve as the guitars chip away like a cheese grater to head and the bass slaps you like a slab to the temple, before having bile spat over the wounds by the vocals, yet oddly it becomes rather moreish.
The 10 tracks last around 38 minutes of a non-stop top draw Black Metal that is dark as you can possibly imagine. This is a wonderfully disturbing release that may make you feel like you need a wash and a cuddle after listening, but you will also be listening to it again and again.
