Formed in 2005, to date, UK-based DE PROFUNDIS has performed in twenty-two countries, having taken part in three international tours including supporting Iron Maiden in India, tours with Rotting Christ, Marduk, and multiple major music festivals worldwide including Bloodstock Open Air. The band’s unique sound merges influences from multiple extreme metal subgenres all heavily infused with elements of progressive rock and jazz. With two critically-acclaimed full-length albums already on their résumé, DE PROFUNDIS recorded their third album The Emptiness Within in London during December 2011, the album then produced by the band and Fernando Pereira (Misanthrope). The album was mixed at the Studios Davout in Paris, France (AC/DC, The Rolling Stones,Ozzy Osbourne) and mastered by Tim Turan (Emperor, Motörhead), and bears artwork crafted by Costin Chioreanu of Twilight 13 Media (Mayhem, Darkthrone, Absu). The nearly hour-long opus embodies nine brilliant songs, flowing with intricate riffing through DE PROFUNDIS‘ unique, forward-thinking delivery.
