"THE EMPTINESS WITHIN"
"THE EMPTINESS WITHIN" is the third full length release from London England, based
DE PROFUNDIS. These guys have been tearing up Europe and beyond since 2005. They
have toured with many local and national acts, which is no surprise after one listen to their
latest offering. These guys play a melodic and extreme Black metal style of music, but they
don't have a typical sound you'd expect. Their music has gone through some changes over
the years, starting out more of a Doom Metal band in the early days. Now the band is a
full on Black Metal band, but with a Progressive sound. They do add in a lot of old school
European Black Metal, with some dark passages and harsh guitars as well as some throaty
and groggy Black Metal screams and growls. They also mix in a lot of Jazz & Progressive
Rock elements into their sound. These guys have taken an older style of Metal music and
completely remodel it for a modern Black Metal sound. There are some atmospheric parts
as well as some more melodic parts as well. These guys may have created a new style of
Black Metal that I could see many new bands copying. This music has so much going on,
but everything ties in together seamlessly. One truly amazing band that has taken a very
worn out style and giving it new life. I have been listening to these guys over and over
again. I loved it! Metal heads open your minds and ears and let DE PROFUNDIS in!
Think of them as CRADLE OF FILTH combined with EMPEROR with touches of
DIMMU BORGIR & OPETH mixed with ENSLAVED & some slight IRON MAIDEN
thrown in. If this list of bands isn't enough to get you to pick up this album, you just don't
what good Metal music is!
