United Kingdom's De Profundis have returned with a new recording which continues their progressive form of blackened death metal and this is a review of their 2018 album "The Blinding Light Of Faith" which was released by Transcending Obscurity Records.
A very dark and heavy sound starts off the album along with some blast beats a few seconds latter while the vocals are mostly blackened metal screams and death metal growls as well the solos and leads are done in a very melodic style and at times the music gets very progressive.
All of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them while the songs also bring in a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with a brief use of spoken word samples as well as a couple of the tracks being very long and epic in length, acoustic guitars and jazz elements can also be heard as the album progresses and tremolo picking can also be heard in some of the faster riffing.
De Profundis creates another recording that remains true to their progressive mixture of black and death metal, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover anti Abrahamic religion themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from De Profundis and if you are a fan of progressive black and death metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Obsidian Spires" "Bastard Sons of Abraham" and "Bringers Of Light". 8 out of 10.
