MB Premiere and Review: PROFECI - 'Aporia' full album stream

The second album from Polish black metal band PROFECI accomplishes a handful of impressive feats. Their debut was released only a year ago but was somewhat off the map in a sense. I remember hearing a bit about that album prior and following its release; however, due to all that was going on at the time (and still is to an extent) that record ended up under my carpet with many others that garnered considerable praise following their initial release. Aporia being the latest form of bleak misanthropy to settle under the Godz ov War banner is an excellent and reassuring album that makes a statement compositionally.

First off the production on Aporia is exceptional, there is this rich wall of sound that rushes you with assertive and bullying force each time a note is played. It creates a towering fortification of instrumental boom that you can hear on the opener 'Demiurge', that follows through to the almost stoner doom influenced introduction of 'Danaidy'. Then there is the music itself that just absolutely wowed me. Being a black metal album, there was not much I was expecting in terms of its instrumental and structural components. However, Aporia really surprised me with the professionalism behind the many faces and tonal textures integrated into its sound. From afore mentioned stoner doom, to folk, rock and goth with tracks like 'Człowiek Urojony' and 'Bojaźń I Drżenie' really utilizing pace and huge power chord driven mid sections to form memorable melodies that'd navigate between anger and melancholy thus adding to the emotional dynamic and attitude of Aporia. While a song like 'Trzecia Ofiara' would open-up with a section that sounds similar to Witching Hour's 'Ligea' or something along those lines; the compositional movement and momentum is sublime and almost surreal at times.

You'll be extremely lucky to have found PROFECI. They are easily a gem within black metal and music in general. Godz ov War Productions have something extraordinary within their ranks.

PROFECI's highly anticipated second album, Aporia, will be released by Godz ov War Productions on September 24th, 2021 and full album review can be found here.
