That also shines through on Merchants Of Air. Extreme metal is becoming rare. But that doesn't mean that the genre is dead, or that I just don't give a shit about it anymore. There are still plenty of talented extreme bands out there, and Profane Order definitely is one of them.
Profane Order is a band from Canada, focusing on harsh and relentless black metal. Their music is chaotic, intense, fast and brutal, a perfect wedding between death metal riffing, gut ripping blast beats and murderous vocals. With that, I also have to mention that there is little to no variation on this album. Every song is pretty much the same, but I guess that is why they call this "war metal". I also happen to know that most metalheads don't give a shit about variation. They just want to be pummeled into a bleeding pulp, and in that this album definitely provides.
Actually, these are two releases, the brand new six track 'Tightened Noose of Sanctimony' and the 2016 album 'Marked By Malice'. Together, they're good for thirteen destructive tracks which follow each other in a raging tempo, like machine guns on a battlefield. Fans of acts like Beherit, Impiety, Satanic Warmaster and so on can easily trust Profane Order to deliver the goods. So yes, for extremists this album comes highly recommended. Play it until your ears bleed, which will not take long...
