“Force of Profanation” has all of the raw -razor-sharp , thick bloodcurdling black metal attack as the first two releases but tighter with a more balanced, almost progressive song writing approach. Extreme drum/bass rhythm excel throughout this album driving the repentless onslaught of rich chainsaw riff-age. Although this album runs just under 35 minutes in length, each song has a nice dynamic unto itself that makes the song seem longer than it is. There are surprising moments of punk and doom that weave tendrils here and there but every song is a full on onslaught start to finish.
There is not a lot of fancy fretwork or intertwining guitar leads to mesmerize but that does not distract from the overall production of heavy hooks and solid stride that will possess you. A hypnotic rage of intense lyrics and sonic imagery with the balls of Lemmy, Ravencult have created a monolith that will stand high alongside their brethren Rotting Christ, Septic Flesh, Watain, Darkthrone, Bathory, Devildriver, Goatwhore in keeping extreme metal alive and well for eons.
If you like your music thrashing mad, with a heavy dose of ass kicking black metal alchemy, you’ll want to check out this offering from Ravencult.
