de profundis bandThe UK’s De Profundis have signed a worldwide two-album deal with Wicker Man Recordings, a new label put together by a knowledgeable team, with a wealth of experience in the music industry. The label is assembling a roster of original and exciting bands and with its excellent distribution throughout all major territories the band feel it’s a perfect home as they embark on the next chapter of their career.

The first fruits of this new relationship will begin on September 28th with the release of the fourth De Profundis album, entitled Kingdom Of The Blind. Featuring ten tracks of progressive, melodic death metal, Kingdom Of The Blind is considered by the band to be their best work to date and comes complete with evocative artwork courtesy of Costin Chioreanu, renowned for his work with Arch Enemy, Darkthrone, At The Gates, Grave and many others.

“De Profundis is excited to release our most brutal and ambitious work to date with Kingdom Of The Blind,” comments band guitarist Shoi Sen “and we can’t wait to start working with the guys at Wicker Man. We feel we now have the backing of a really enthusiastic and supportive team, the right people to help take De Profundis to the next level.”

2014 was an excellent year for De Profundis as they drew plaudits from around the globe for their fantastic Frequencies EP. The EP hit the top spot in the Zero Tolerance Magazine readers’ poll, running away with the award for the best self-release of the year and bassist Arran McSporran also featured in the top ten bassists of the year – amongst some illustrious company like Alex Webster (Cannibal Corpse), David Vincent (Morbid Angel) and Glen Benton (Deicide).
