Metallurgical Fire Thanks to Patrick Bruss for drawing The Art of Sickness to my attention. This is a weirdly slept on album and band. After a few listens it’s one of my favorites for brutal and technical death. The Suffocation legacy is probably why, but Profanity is not a clone by any means. Favorite track: Mouth Of Nepotism.

Drachensturm Like Suffocation and Necrophagist got together to make an album called Epitaph Of The Forgotten; old school Brutal Death mixed together with the intricacies of modern Tech Death. Expertly done.

Synfonic Meadow Make PROFANiTY great again \m/ [9.3/10]
Return to form from Thomas Sartor and his mates... technical and brutal death metal that will get better as we get to familiarize ourselves with its complex song structures. Quantity over quality? You won't get that here : The Art of Sickness is a pound for pound contender for album of the year! Favorite track: Mouth Of Nepotism.

On April 21st, 2017, Profanity are returning with a new full-length: “The Art Of Sickness”. Its title reveals the route of the new material which is full of playfulness and technical brilliance while it strikes a balance between art and insane chaos. Recorded at Iguana Studios (Spheron, Imperium Dekadenz, Necrophagist a.o.) with producer Christoph Brandes the new songs will bring all tech death gourmets to the scene. To make the album even more diverse, the band invited guests like Terrance Hobbs (Suffocation), Adrie Kloosterwaard (Sinister), Ricky Myers (Disgorge, Suffocation), Christian Münzner (Alkaloid, ex-Obscura) as well as their ex-bassist Martl Bauer. The artwork was done by Pär Olofsson who already created images for albums by Exodus, Unleashed, Malevolent Creation o.a.
