Blasphemous black metal legion PROFANATICA are currently in the throes of controversy due to their sacrilegious and sexual lyrical content, making them the latest victims of censorship. The cassette manufacturer, who was slated to produce that format of the band’s ‘Rotting Incarnation of God’ have turned the job away, citing concerns with the band’s lyrics. Season of Mist has since found a new manufacturer for the tapes.
PROFANATICA comment, “Right now, we’re operating at about 45% blasphemy. People are getting offended already, and we barley scratched the surface.”
PROFANATICA have previously revealed the details for ‘Rotting Incarnation of God,’ which is due on October 11. The album art and track-list can be found below. The title track can be heard at at THIS LOCATION.

One of the first wave of American black metal bands, PROFANATICA have purveyed primeval blasphemy on nigh for three decades. ‘Rotting Incarnation of God,’ their latest album and first with Season of Mist, vomits forth a most vulgar strain of black metal ejaculate. Led by founder Paul Ledney, the trio desecrate everything sacred with a ferocious stream of chainsaw guitars and relentless battery. PROFANATICA walk as kings in the murky depths of the black metal scene, and ‘Rotting Incarnation of God’ cements their well-deserved reputation as one of the genre’s most wicked creations. Some music was meant to stay underground.
In 1990, Aragon Amori, Paul Ledney, and Brett Makowski departed INCANTATION due to artistic differences, leading to the birth of PROFANATICA. Influenced by such classic cults as VENOM, NECROVORE, SARCOFAGO, and BATHORY, the unholy trinity together had a passion to create raw and sacrilegious Black Metal. The band has since released four full-lengths and over a dozen demos, splits, and compilations. However, their story is not one without controversy as the masters for what was supposed to be their first full-length, initially titled ‘The Raping of the Virgin Mary,’ were unfortunately destroyed in the studio, although, there are conflicting stories about what really happened. The band parted ways until Ledney resurrected PROFANATICA with two new members in 2001. Despite dropping their first demo in 1990, their long overdue debut full-length, ‘Profanatitas de Domonatia,’ was released 17 years after the band’s conception.
Now, PROFANATICA’s latest chapter is nothing short of blasphemous perversions, sacrilegious incantations, and furious, unrelenting black metal. The kings of USBM are back to bless you with another assault of unholy hellfire.
