The original purveyors of bleeding-raw Black Metal barbarity & mesmerizing filth; this is NOT the new PROFANATICA album! This oddity features an a 39 minute mini-album plus the "The Grand Masters Session" Box Set on CD. Nearly 80 minutes of true blasphemy & perversion.

PART #1 features 5 new songs plus 2 old classics written and recorded by Ledney with a session member. The performance on this work is much like their primitive NECROVORE-ous atrocities committed in the early '90s and allows for safe assumption of what could have been heard on their long-lost album, "The Raping of the Virgin Mary."

Meanwhile, PART #2 features the same titles but written and recorded by Gelso alongside the same drums & vocals performed on part #1. The execution of this session continues in the more musical direction showcased on their first 2 albums and incorporates soundscapes sonically compiled by the late Aragon Amori. The end result is nothing short of devastating, and the vast contrast between these two sessions takes on the form of an album in itself that is sure to appeal to both old & new devotees of the black cult.

Profanatica function of the sheer hatred and momentum of their sound, and the raw primacy of the riffing construction. One could make an argument that they're just as much a death metal band for using such corpulent, evil tremolo riffing, but the vocals and lyrics place is a bit further into the blackened category. Hellish sacrilege is par for the course, with little lyrical deviation, and the guitars so voluminous that they nearly burst from the recording. - 4/5
