Profanatica is a black metal band from New York. They are one of the first black metal band from United States alongside with Von formed inand are among the top American black metal bands to have emerged early during the second wave of black metal.
Under the direction of Paul Ledney they have placed profound emphasis on blasphemous themes. After the founding members of death metal band Incantation split ways due to artistic differences, Paul Ledney, Aragon Amori, and Brett Makowski adopted the name Profanatica while John McEntee continued as Incantation. In an interview, it was implied Heavenly Father - Profanatica - The Enemy Of Virtue Ledney did not recognise the legitimacy of Incantation under McEntee, and he claimed that it was he, Amori, and Makowski who originally proposed the name.
He has also claimed that McEntee was reluctant to pursue their interests in black Heavenly Father - Profanatica - The Enemy Of Virtue , corpse paintand blasphemous themes. In the summer ofthey released their first demo Putrescence Of Brett Makowski was unable to participate in the recording of the latter demo, so the band recruited John Gelso to play guitar. Both demo tapes eventually caught the interest of After World Records.
The band signed a deal with the label and in they released Weeping in Heaven Heavenly Father - Profanatica - The Enemy Of Virtue 7" EP, strictly limited to hand-numbered copies.
Following the success of this EP, After World chose to re-release it on cassette with two bonus live tracks the following year. The EP turned out to be a split 12" with the Colombian band Masacre. During this time, Profanatica extensively toured the northeastern United States, often shocking many with their sick and blasphemous live act.
As the end of the year approached, Brett Makowski and Cheap Sunglasses - Various - Sharp Dressed Men: A Tribute To ZZ Top Gelso both officially left the band. Paul and Aragon invited Wicked Warlock of Demonic Blasphemy nowadays known as Ixithra of the band Demoncyto perform the guitar work. The three of them played one gig together, and were planned to participate in an American black metal festival that Halloween, appearing with bands such as Order from ChaosVital Remainsand Acheron ; however, this never took place.
The band entered the studio to record a full-length release, initially entitled The Raping of the Virgin Mary although in other instances the name was known as Sodomy of Sacred Assholes. In earlyPaul Ledney recruited two new members and Heavenly Father - Profanatica - The Enemy Of Virtue Profanatica. In longtime guitarist and bassist John Gelso exited the band and was replaced by Ryan Adams.
According to both Proscriptor and Tony Laureanothey are among the first American black metal bands,   although Laureano considers them to be obviously death metal. The trick is to play them aggressive like Gelso does. The lyrics are about blasphemy and profanation of "anything sacred and holy". Ledney writes "most of the blasphemies and Aragon does most of the lyrics". A Profanatica video showed the bassist ejaculating unto a bible and Ledney licking it up; the latter claims they are "definitely not homos".
Asked how deeply he is into SatanismLedney replied Profanatica were "into our own deal" and had their own beliefs, making "our own Satanism" and being "into black perversion. We shit on God. We are larger than God and he is smaller than us. That's the way we La Vai Ela - Alvarito - Sofrimento. We put down false religions.
He believes he is his own God and does not "believe Satan is an Heavenly Father - Profanatica - The Enemy Of Virtue entity. It's just a worship figure, but a lot of people do think of Satan as a real god.
Maybe they're crazy, why should their 'master' care about someone like them anyhow? Satanism is anti-religion. I don't believe in any Gods. I suppose it's good that some people gather for black masses with their corresponding dark beliefs, but I think everybody should think for themselves.
If everyone thought the same way then that would be hell on earth. I wore one of those costumes for Halloween when I was nine with the pitchfork and that's all I'm gonna say He rejects "Satanic churches and so forth" as "just more organized religion". Asked about the Necronomiconhe replied "it was written as a joke - kind of. HP Lovecraft is a great writer. One of my favorites. But if someone believes in Pazuzuthen he exists. That's the way I look at it. Ledney called the Norwegian bands "kinda a joke.
Anyone can take a lot of drugs and put on make-up, that's what I think. That's like someone saying how big their cock is. It's definitely small! If they talk about it all the time. Except for us. There's so many bands that play the same style and rip off from each other and other bands, that it's just ridiculously fake! I don't even call it music. I just call it a sad attempt at Black Metal.
They use samples on the guitars and they just don't know how to play. The album Profanatitas de Domonatia differs from early releases in terms of productions, which "happened on purpose. That was the sound we were trying to get all these years. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Retrieved 29 July Schwarzes Amerika.
