DE PROFUNDIS ~ The Blinding Light Of Faith (Transcending Obscurity Records 2018)


De Profundis ~ Blinding Light Of Faith

Gospel of the band ~ " 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."



The fifth release from De Profundis showcasing the bands ability to inflict aural wounds in a frenzied death thrash attack, with riffs that flay skin from bone rather than bludgeon through brutality. 

Blinding Light Of Faith continues a growing trend of extreme metal bands that has sought to expand their sound by blending ferocity with progressive intricacies and De Profundis pulls it off with aplomb, the relentless pace melding perfectly with the bands instinct for melody, barbed as it is. 

De Profundis, on their fifth release, definitely have their shit together.
