PROFANE ORDER "Tightened Noose of Sanctimony" CD
Import from Canada. Jewel case w/ booklet.
Review via No Clean Singing
"Profane Order are based in Montreal. Their line-up includes members of other Montreal black metal bands, specifically Spectral Wound and Taggarik... "Tightened Noose" is a finely crafted implement of destruction, a withering blackened death metal blitzkrieg full of toxically corrosive grinding and swarming riffs, crater-creating bass munitions, a thundering, head-cracking drum attack, and an assortment of sparingly used but freakish and incinerating solos. Ghastly howls and roars accompany the electrifying instrumental torrents.
And to be clear, the music here isn’t some murky froth of shapeless chaos. As ruthlessly destructive as they are, the songs are also heavy-grooved and catchy as hell, and more dynamic than you might be expecting. For me the standout track is “Terror Worship”, in part because of the bewildering black magic that the band practice when they slow the pace. But you can’t go wrong with any of these six obsidian gems."
