Brutal and technical Death Metal
Since 1993, the underground is shaking under the sounds of Profanity. The German tech death three-piece set a heavy mark with their albums “Shadows To Fall” (1997) and “Slaughtering Thoughts” (2000) as well as their tour in support of Cryptopsy in 2002 and their appearance at the Maryland Death Fest 2004 alongside Misery Index and Exhumed. After some years of silence, the band spew out a new sign of live with their EP “Hatred Hell Within” (2014). It was recorded with producer Christoph Brandes in his Iguana Studios (Spheron, Imperium Dekadenz, Necrophagist o.a.).
On April 21st, 2017, Profanity were returning with a new full-length: “The Art Of Sickness” released by Apostasy records. Its title reveals the route of the new material which is full of playfulness and technical brilliance while it strikes a balance between art and insane chaos. Recorded again at Iguana Studios with producer Christoph Brandes the new songs will bring all tech death gourmets to the scene. To make the album even more diverse, the band invited guests like Terrance Hobbs (Suffocation), Adrie Kloosterwaard (Sinister), Ricky Myers (Disgorge, Suffocation), Christian Münzner (Alkaloid, ex-Obscura) as well as their ex-bassist Martl Bauer. The artwork was done by Pär Olofsson who already created images for albums by Exodus, Unleashed, Malevolent Creation o.a.
