PROFANITY Fragments Of SolaceHot
On December 4th German tech-death veterans Profanity returns with their fourth full length studio album. Fragments Of Solace was recorded during the first half of 2020 in various studio locations, and then mixed and mastered by Lukas Haidinger at Deep Deep Pressure Studios. Profanity has been around since 1993 and according to themselves the vision for this album was to mix the vibe of the most important death metal albums from the early nineties until now with their own vision of extreme music. The album consists of seven tracks of various length, where the shortest is two minutes long while the longest clocks in on just above nine minutes. I really enjoyed their 2017 album The Art Of Sickness, and the new material is certainly following in the same foot print. All tracks are premium quality technical death metal, but with elements of more traditional 90’s death metal and of course strong melodies it should appeal to not only the tech death fans out there. The album features guest appearances from among others Terrance Hobbs (Suffocation) and Matt Sotelo (Decrepit Birth). Profanity is not reinventing the wheel with this release, but if you’re looking for some new quality death metal Fragments Of Solace is definitely one to check out.
