UK death metal veterans DE PROFUNDIS premiere new track via The Metal Wanderlust

DE PROFUNDIS_cover220727

De Profundis are playing a form of progressive death metal that’s far too aggressive to be called just that. With each album, not only have they become heavier, they’re also doing a lot more that can easily be overlooked if not listened to properly – not too unlike their UK counterparts and label mates, Live Burial. The Metal Wanderlust premiered an excellent track showcasing their melodic prowess AT THIS LINK

“De Profundis has shaped their sound into a special shade of death metal. Progressive, melodic, groovy, highly destructive, and at times blackened to a crisp, this band doesn’t fuck about with convention”


– “the band’s best record to date and a must buy” – Wormwood Chronicles (US) 5/5

– “it stands in the highest echelon” – No Clean Singing (US)

– “one of the most impressive creations of death metal that the year has seen” – Head-Banger Reviews (US)

– “most demanding, engrossing and impressive death metal albums of 2022” – Metal Purgatory (US) 9/10

– “truly outstanding album” – Dioses del Metal (Spain) 

– “De Profundis are excellent at combining brutality with ingenious melodies” – Metal Division Magazine (Germany) 8/10

– “an absolute treat for any fan of Death Metal” – The Headbanging Moose (Canada) 3.5/5

– “a must listen” – Extreme Metal Manic (US)

– “tremendously intense” – Broken Tomb (Spain)

Most bands mellow with age but nearly two decades since their inception, UK’s death metal stalwarts De Profundis have only evolved to become more and more extreme with each album, their latest probably being their most intense, aggressive and challenging release till date. The musicianship too has only grown over the years and the accomplished members are setting new standards for themselves with each one and complementing each other better than ever before. The interplay is absolutely remarkable on this one with the songwriting being way more intricate and engaging. The album almost comes across as a technical death metal one, with various facets revealing themselves upon repeat listens and parts clicking together as a whole. They’ve expanded upon their newly belligerent form of death metal while carefully counterbalancing it with emotive melodies which has been their forte since years, and the result is a terrific and impressive blend of sound that only a few can manage to pull off without overdoing either of it. The album is an absolute treat for any fan of death metal who likes his music to be demanding, engrossing and well thought out.
