De Profundis are a band from England that had their previous album reviewed in this zine and plays a blackened and progressive mixture of doom and death metal and this is a review of their 2014 ep "Frequencies" which was released by Terrorizer magazine.
A very heavy, dark and melodic sound starts off the ep before adding in brutal death blast beats along with some growls, screams and technical guitar riffing which also leads up to a more progressive death metal direction and after a couple of minutes melodic guitar solos and leads are added into the music along with some powerful bass lines.
A More progressive, melodic and technical musical direction is present on this recording while the black metal influences of the previous recording are still a very strong part of the bands musical style and they also bring in a good mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts and the last song is a cover of Death's "Crystal Mountain".
De Profundis concentrate less on the black and doom metal element s of previous recordings and go for a more progressive and technical style of death metal this time around while still having a small amount of their past in their newer material, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover negativity, solitude, despondency, and contemplation.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from De Profundis and if you are a fan of technical and progressive death metal, you should check out this ep,. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "A Strange Awakening" and "Crystal Mountain". 8 out of 10.
