WICKER MAN are a new label, but one put together by a knowledgeable team, with a wealth of experience in the music industry. The label is assembling a roster of original and exciting bands and with its excellent distribution throughout all major territories it’s the perfect home for DE PROFUNDIS as they embark on the next chapter of their career.
The first fruits of this new relationship will begin on the 28th September with the release of the fourth DE PROFUNDIS album, entitled Kingdom Of The Blind. Featuring ten stunning tracks of progressive, melodic death metal, Kingdom Of The Blind is without any doubt the finest album to bear the DE PROFUNDIS name. More challenging, more extreme, more captivating and addictive than anything they have released before, Kingdom Of The Blind will thrill DE PROFUNDIS’ devoted fans and draw many new listeners into their cult of technically breathtaking, atmospheric death metal mastery. The album will come complete with some wonderfully evocative artwork, courtesy of Costin Chioreanu, renowned for his work with Arch Enemy, Darkthrone, At The Gates, Grave and many others.
“De Profundis is excited to release our most brutal and ambitious work to date with Kingdom Of The Blind,” comments band guitarist Shoi Sen “and we can’t wait to start working with the guys at Wicker Man. We feel we now have the backing of a really enthusiastic and supportive team, the right people to help take De Profundis to the next level.”
2014 was an excellent year for DE PROFUNDIS as they drew plaudits from around the globe for their fantastic Frequencies EP. The EP hit the top spot in the ZERO TOLERANCE MAGAZINE readers’ poll, running away with the award for the best self release of the year and bassist Arran McSporran also featured in the top ten bassists of the year – amongst some illustrious company like Alex Webster (Cannibal Corpse), David Vincent (Morbid Angel) and Glen Benton (Deicide). However, even these achievements look set to be eclipsed in 2015, when the monumental Kingdom Of The Blind is unleashed.
