    Terrorizer's Grindhouse TODAY!

    Saturday 26th June again more bands will hit Scruffys Birmingham
    Headlined by the Mighty De Profundis

    Having performed alongside bands such as Iron Maiden, Nevermore, Opeth and Obituary across both Europe and Asia, De Profundis has won critical acclaim for its unique sound and powerful live shows. Following two full-length releases, the band continues to work hard to share its musical vision of despondency and negativity with the world.

    De Profundis was formed in November 2005 by vocalist Craig Land and guitarist Roman Subbotin. As the band’s sound evolved over the course of the next 18 months, Christophe Szpajdel (Emperor, Enthoned) was approached to design a suitable logo reflecting the band’s music visually. 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. In April 2007, De Profundis recorded its first album, entitled ‘Beyond Redemption’, which was mixed by Steve Watkins at Warehouse Studios, Oxford and mastered by Tim Turan at Turan Audio (Dimmu Borgir, Opeth, Emperor). Achilleas Gatsopoulos (Dark Tranquillity, Arcturus) created the artwork for the album.

    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. Having played their first show in September 2007 with drummer Sterghios Moschos, De Profundis has been delivering high impact live performances to rave reviews and enthusiastic crowds, being voted the 6th Best Unsigned Band in the 2007 Terrorizer Readers’ Poll.

    Following further glowing reviews, De Profundis was invited to perform at the MMD Festival in Athens (Greece) in March 2008. Upon returning from Greece, the band supported the French band Misanthrope on both of their exclusive UK shows. In July 2008, Nick Tingle replaced Sterghios Moschos, making his live debut with De Profundis at Bloodstock Open Air 2008 Festival. In December 2008, De Profundis was handpicked by Zero Tolerance magazine to take part in their showcase “Day of Unrest” gig.

    In February 2009, De Profundis supported Iron Maiden at the Rock in India Festival in Bangalore, India in front of 20,000 people. On the back of this performance, Sony BMG gave the band a record deal to release their debut album “Beyond Redemption” in India.

    In the months of June and July 2009, De Profundis recorded their second album “A Bleak Reflection” with producer Fernando Pereira Lopes (Misanthrope, Orakle). The album was once again mastered by none-other-than Tim Turan at Turan Audio. Darryll Jones created the album’s artwork.

    August 2009 saw the band resuming its intensive live schedule with a show in Bucharest (Romania) and an appearance at Portugal’s Festival Ilha do Ermal 2009. In Autumn 2009, De Profundis performed in Paris (France) and toured across Northern England and Scotland.

    “A Bleak Reflection” was released on 1st February 2010 in Europe through Kolony Records. From 1st March 2010, Relapse Records will be exclusively distributing the album in USA and Canada. Following the success of the band’s first album, Sony BMG will release “A Bleak Reflection” in India on 1st April 2010. Since its release “A Bleak Reflection” has gathered strong reviews including 8/10 in Terrorizer and 4.5/6 in Zero Tolerance.

    In May 2010 De Profundis completed their first European tour supporting Ragnarok (Norway).
