The death metal bug bit me in about late 1990. After 20 years, there isn’t a ton of it that really excites me – especially newer stuff. But a couple years ago I literally stumbled onto the best death metal/grind band that I’ve heard in a long time.
Profanation – hailing from Görlitz, in East Germany near the borders of Poland and the Czech Republic.
They switched singers recently (from a bloke named Hippi to a youngin’ named Jeff) – but they remain crushing. Like many underground bands they self finance their own albums and are unsigned. They have just finished a new album, but again no label. So here you go – a nice healthy swallow of broken glass force fed by a metal funnel emblazoned with the name Profanation. Yep.
