Released: 2006, Unmatched Brutality
THE INERRANCY OF PROFANATION, what can I say about this CD that you haven’t seen on the cover already. Yes, it is Death Metal, Brutal Death Metal to be exact. Yes, it sounds like a bastard son of Suffocation. Yes, it is not as good as the New Yorkers. But what you don’t know is that THE INERRANCY OF PROFANATION doesn’t come from a band. It comes for a man: Shawn Whitaker. One sick man.
Unfortunately THE INERRANCY OF PROFANATION is not an interesting release. It has some moments here and there, and also some killer riffs (check out the middle part of “Befouldind the Adoration of Christ”), but the song structures are poor. They just sound like a bunch of riffs thrown in a pot just because the mastermind behind the band had too much riffs lying around.
Also, a very negative aspect are the drums. They sound awful, and as you may have guessed they come from a drum machine. The sound is extremely artificial and the cymbals, hi-hats and every other crash annoyed me right from the beginning. I am sure that if Shawn Whitaker had bought a better drum machine, or maybe a drum software, like the incredible Reason, things would have sounded better. Bass is also pretty hard to listen too.
On this one I don’t have anything more to say. Still, I can see many Brutal Death lovers finding some meat here. But for everyone else this won’t mean a thing. Hopefully the next release is more interesting and is not the shadow, of the shadow of the shadow of the shadow of Suffocation and the likes. Stay Heavy!!!
