De Profundis biography
Founded in London, UK in 2005

DE PROFUNDIS was formed by vocalist Craig LAND and guitarist Roman SUBBOTIN. The band underwent several personnel changes until a stable and committed line-up was completed with the recruitment of Aleksej OBRADOVIC (bass) and Shoi SEN (guitar), with David ANDREWS stepping in to play the drums on the recording.

Delivering unique-sounding progressive extreme metal, DE PROFUNDIS has many genre-bridging elements to their sound; spanning across death, black and doom metal right through to jazz and progressive rock. These draw on a wide range of influences and the diverse nationalities of the band members.

In April 2007, DE PROFUNDIS recorded its first album, entitled Beyond Redemption. While preparing for their second album, growing musical differences resulted in Aleksej OBRADOVIC departing from the band and being replaced by Arran MCSPORRAN in May 2009.
In the months of June and July 2009, DE PROFUNDIS recorded their second album A Bleak Reflection

5 stars Over the course of the last decade De Profundis have built themselves an enviable reputation for delivering music of staggering power and breathtaking skill, both in the studio and on the stage. Although many think of them as a technical death metal band, I actually believe that they would be better stated to be extreme prog metal as they continue to transcend any particular genre, using one form as a base and then going wherever they wish. Earlier this year they released their fifth full-length album, 'The Blinding Light of Faith', through Transcending Obscurity Records and they have now signed a deal with Lusitanian Music to release the album as a limited vinyl edition. This allows the listener to study in detail the intricate, nightmarish album artwork created by Alex Tartsus (Sinister, Depravity etc.) while the band's new logo, also stands out far more than in would in the smaller CD version.

The band have been known to be influenced by doom in the past, and it does point its nose in at different points during the album, but what makes this such a delight is the sheer refusal to conform to any particular pre-conceived ideas. There are times when this is out and out technical death, others when it is almost power metal in its approach, but it is consistently bending and melding, creating something which is always powerful and dynamic, but twisting into different directions so that no-one can work out where and how it is going to end. I find the production really interesting as well, as in many ways it exaggerates the melodic power of the music, with a bass line that is often found to be wandering along creating a sub-melody without the level of attack that one may expect from this form of music.

Incredibly detailed and layered, this is an incredibly complex album which listeners will gain more from each and every time it is played. It is hard to imagine an more imaginative death metal album being released by anyone this year.

Thanks to bonnek for the artist addition. and to Quinino for the last updates
