"Demo 2006 (only in norwegian, yet)"

Profania
Demo 2006

Private (2006)
Sjanger: Thrash metal

Jeg velger å kalle det thrash selv om de har mye tung power i lydbildet. Riffene og den ultrakule rytmeseksjonen gjør at jeg rett og slett minnes de gode gamle dager. :)

Fire spor som alle fungerer, men med litt ujevnheter, er slutningen jeg trekker. De har plenty av styrke og bør med letthet klatre opp til mulig kontrakt nivået om ikke så altfor lenge. Da med målbevisst satsing og et par-tre låter til samt en demo eller to til før det hele sitter.

Fyrig thrash med kule soloer og en råhet som oser av skitne bakgater. De sier selv de er inspirert av Nevermore, Opeth, Megadeth, Pantera og Maiden og Slayer blant annet. Bra band det der, men Profania ender opp som en fin miks av Slayer, Megadeth og thrashbølgen som herjet ca slutten av 80 tallet. Litt Nuclear Assault var også der inne...skitten rølpethrash med tett og bra riffing. Når gitarene kjører disse små løpene på egen hånd skinner det utrolig sterkt.

Vokalen er hard og brutal, på kanten til å growle, men hele tiden balansert mot den thrasha varianten. En litt light-utgave av Neongods Svein kanskje? Noen ganger låt det litt uferdig av stemmen til Jan, men jevnt over synes jeg det var bra.

Bra førsteutgivelse dette! Og et must for ekte thrashere...Mail bandet på denne adressen, jeg har dessverre ikke noe link å gi ut.

Bio

Profania was formed in Drammen, Norway in february 2004. The band was formed by Jan Pinslund, Christer Borud and Espen Ris... All bandmembers where finished with all previous band-activity and were looking for a fresh start with new musicians. We started looking for a bass-player, and we soon found Christer Lunde formerly of the band Cthon. Our first rehersals consisted of us playing a few cover-songs to find out if the chemistry was there. Within a short amount of time we had written a few original tunes also. The style of those songs were kind of like our old heroes meeting our later ones. Kind of old Metallica and Megadeth mixed with the likes of Pantera. This has also been the discription of our sound when confronted by fans at our shows. Anyway, it’s important for us that our songs has their own signature and doesn..t sound like anything else and remain hard and mighty, but still melodic and "catchy". After about a year we decided to search for a new bassist. We found a new member in Robert Wavter. We wrote a bunch of new songs and played our first gig with him. It was a "band-battle" in Asker, Norway. We came in second and were pleased with that, considering the circumstances and the tough competition. Then we went to Panser Studio in February of 2006 and recorded our first demo. It was engineered by Bj..rn Bergersen and consisted of the songs: Tombstone, Under Siege, Into Nothingness and Crimson Serenade. The response we got for our demo was outstanding! Then we decided to get a new bass-player, again :). This time we got Andr.. Forsmo, currently of "The Allseeing I" and "Sarkom". He also has a few other projects going at the time, a busy man. We have now played a lot of gig’s at places like Oslo, Drammen, Asker and Trysil and the response has been great. We have no intention of quiting and will continue to spread our metal to the masses!!
