Country: Poland
Title: Hereticon
Label: Putrid Cult / Under the Sign of Garazel
Year: 2016
Style: Black Metal

After a couple of demos and a split with one-man-band Sarg, Polish duo ProFanatism manage to release their debut full-length album, 8 tracks of horrifying Black Metal from the bowels of hell. If you can pass over the awful drums' sound, you'll discover a demonic, chaotic yet carefully crafted Black Metal quite original in its own, led by a sick, vomiting, hateful vocal section on a dense layer of twisted guitars that sound like a swarm of insects attacking a decaying body. The atmosphere ProFanatism manage to create are so putrid, so infected, so horror-drenched it makes this album a masterpiece, this not to mention the occasional Progressive Death Black Metal guitar harmonies that pop up here and there. If it wasn't for the shitty drums' sound this album would have been the perfect soundtrack to your worst nightmare, a massive construction of filth and disgust. In the meantime the band released a new album, I hope it has a better recording quality, but I'll make sure to check it out soon, so should you.
