Profanatica hate God. The American black metal band have spit on everything holy since they were playing the backroom of Chinese restaurants alongside Gorophobia, Immolation and Incantation.
Led by drummer Paul Ledney, these heretics have wiped their ass with the Bible for 30+ years. They’ve hurled everything from profanities to their own feces at the heavenly host (not to mention other, more nefarious bodily fluids).
This Friday, Profanatica are releasing their new album ‘Crux Simplex’. As you can see from the cover art, it’s so blasphemous, that you just might lose your head.
Listen for yourself on our YouTube channel, where Pronatica is streaming all of ‘Crux Simplex’ a few days ahead of its release.
‘Crux Simplex’ is vile even by Profanatica’s lofty standards. The album takes things another step too far by mocking Jesus on the day of his crucifixion (talk about kicking someone when they’re down). Each bastardizes a different station of the cross. “Take Up the Cross” ushers in a fresh plague of stain and sacrilege with Ledney’s rotten death growl, while “The First Fall” gives our precious lord and savior a good lashing with cymbals that clank like rusty chains. By the time “The First Fall” comes around, you can practically hear those blackened chainsaw guitars ripping the king of kings limb from limb.
“These 10 tracks represent the first 10 stations of the cross,” says Mayhemic Slaughterer of the Heavens Paul Ledney. “It took well over a year to create, and for all those who know us we consider it our gift to you.”
