London, UK-based progressive extreme metal band De Profundis have inked a deal with Kolony Records to release their second album "A Bleak Reflection" in Europe. The album was recorded in June/July 2009 with producer Fernando Pereira Lopes (Misanthrope, Orakle) and mastered by Tim Turan (Emperor, Opeth, Motörhead).
Commented the label: "Kolony Records are very proud of this signing and would like to welcome De Profundis to the label's roster. We were blown away by the band's musical style (an original mix of black-death-doom and, why not, some progressive metal) from the moment we listened to their promo. The guys showed a lot of professionalism during all our discussions and we were really impressed with the international live experience of De Profundis. The band has a proven track record when it comes to live performances, having landed high profile gigs with likes of Iron Maiden, Nevermore and Annihilator in both the UK and abroad. De Profundis has already performed in Greece, France, Portugal, Romania and India; the band is currently finalising plans to tour Europe on a wider scale during 2010. That's the kind of band we like to work with!"
De Profundis guitarist Roman Subbotin has issued the following update concerning the band's sophomore album:
"My long-winded blogs return, at last, after a prolonged absence. If the Devil finds work for idle hands, I want to know which bastard has been finding work for me and why there's been so much of it?!?
Anyway, our second album is now well and truly finished. Produced by Fernando Pereira Lopes and ourselves it represents a significant moment for our musical evolution. We've all worked really hard and, in my humble opinion, achieved rather spectacular results.
The "record" button was first pressed on 5th June 2009, after which we've spent almost a whole month in various studios in and around London recording the album. Mixing then took place over two sessions at Russ Russell's Parlour Studios in July. The mixes where then mastered by Tim Turan. What seems like an eternal process has finally come to an end...?
Death doom metallers De Profundis have posted the following statement on their website about the departure of their bassist and announcing the replacement:
De Profundis and bassist Aleksej Obradovic have parted ways after more than 3 years of successful collaboration due to musical differences. Additionally, Aleksej's job commitments would have made it very hard for the band to go touring or to perform live on a regular basis. The split was amicable and we remain on good terms with Aleksej.
De Profundis would like to thank Aleksej for his contribution to the band and wish him the best of luck in his future musical endeavours.
A replacement bass player has already been found. We have been fortunate enough to secure Arran McSporran's services as a new full-time band member. Arran will be laying down all the bass tracks on the new De Profundis album, due to be recorded in June 2009 with producer Fernando Pereira. Arran will be making his live debut with De Profundis at Romania's Rock City Open Air 2009 Festival.
Guitarist Roman Subbotin of UK death/doom metal band De Profundis has issued the following update:
"De Profundis once again emerges out of the shadows with some new music. As you may already know, we have been working on our second album for a few months now. Before going into the studio to record the real thing, we felt it would be good to try something we haven't done before and record a Promo CD, the results of which are now available for your listening (dis)pleasure.
Both tracks have been self-recorded and engineered with the help of Steve Watkins, with whom we did our first album. This two song Promo will not be released officially, and will eventually be taken down to pave the way for the second album. The songs themselves may change somewhat on the final record, too. But, for now, here are the new sounds of De Profundis that we hope you'll enjoy."
