After supporting the mighty Iron Maiden in 2009 and playing as co-headliners with Lacuna Coil to 30,000 people at the Kingfisher Octoberfest in 2010, DE PROFUNDIS have been busy over the past few years touring relentlessly and planning their new studio releases.
6 years after their first Bloodstock appearance in 2008, DE PROFUNDIS descend upon the Sophie Lancaster stage determined to prove that they are a force within UK’s Extreme Metal scene that cannot and will not be ignored. The band will play Bloodstock on Friday August 8th.
Self-releasing their full-length debut Beyond Redemption to critical acclaim in 2007, the band wasted no time in making themselves known as a live experience to be reckoned with. With the bands second release A Bleak Reflection (2009) and third album The Emptiness Within (2012) the band developed a sound which was colossal in scope and far more progressive in nature than Beyond Redemption.
2014 sees the band working hard in the studio and on the live stage. Along with the announcement of the BOA appearance, DE PROFUNDIS are now ready to begin recording their next 2 releases: a 4 track EP to be released very soon, followed by the bands fourth full length album in the near future, both of whose titles are yet to be announced. A tour to support the new releases will be announced towards the end of the year.
The new “teaser” EP release will be distributed, in part, by Terrorizer magazine, one of the UK’s biggest Metal and Thrash publications. This will feature in the July 2014 edition of Terrorizer. The band decided to record and release the EP to get the fans excited and ready for the following studio album released later in the year. With these two new releases, DE PROFUNDIS continue to evolve, the new material being the most scathingly aggressive yet intricate and refined music they have ever written.
More news on the upcoming EP will be released soon.
