Hells Headbash II Lineup Anounced

Hells Headbangers just announced the final lineup for the label's three-day "Hells Headbash - Part 2" festival, set to take place in Cleveland, Ohio on September 4th - 6th.

Profanatica Announces "Thy Kingdom Cum" Release

Hells Headbangers has announced November 26th as the international release date for Profanatica's new album, "Thy Kingdom Cum," on both CD and LP formats. The following press release was issued about the band:

"As one of earliest American black metal bands, during the dark 'n' bloody days of the early 1990s, Profanatica set out upon a course of utter blasphemy and barbaric primitivism, then retreating into the shadows as a cult icon, only to be resurrected years later once the black metal scene had finally caught up with their invention/degradation. When they returned, with Profanatitas de Domonatia in 2007, the signature Profanatica sound was firmly in place, and yet masters Paul Ledney and John Gelso continued to challenge themselves and push this pulsing primitivism to uncharted waters of sin 'n' sickness.

"Three years later, Disgusting Blasphemies Against God pushed the envelope even further - and yet three more years, and now Thy Kingdom Cum absolutely desecrates that envelope. Profaners of the pure, defilers of Dog's creation, fornicators upon the altar: Thy Kingdom Cum is Profanatica' most vile and virulent creation yet.Tense, veritgo-inducing riffing from Gelso malforms minds while Ledney's charred-black throat vomits forth visions only Profanatica can create/desecrate. This is black metal incarnate, and then black metal defied/defiled. Let the juices flow across Thy Kingdom Cum..."

Profanatica Redies "The Enemy of Virtue" DVD Set

On February 14, 2008 Negative Existence, in cooperation with Deathgasm Records, will officially release PROFANATICA's classic video footage on deluxe double DVD format. The DVD will be entitled "The Enemy of Virtue". The two disc set will contain all of the band’s live footage, interviews, with additional material.

The Legendary and influential PROFANATICA set the example for the second wave of Black Metal in the early 1990’s. During this time, PROFANATICA extensively toured the North Eastern United States, often shocking many with their sick and blasphemous live act. This official DVD set contains the following blasphemous rituals:

G. Willikers: Pennsauken, NJ - 1991
Candlewood Inn: Brookfield, CT - January 4, 1992
G. Willikers: Pennsauken, NJ – February 1, 1992
Club Baby Head: Providence, RI – June 11, 1992
The Briar Patch: Carmel, NY – September 14, 1992
Connections Tavern: Clifton, NJ – July 14, 2001

The professional double DVD is playable on all DVD players world wide. Both discs are region free and double sided for both NTSC and PAL. The DVDs come in a clear case with a full color cover and also includes an insert with detailed information about the video recordings.

You can get more information or order the DVD from Negative-Existence for $17.00 here.

PROFANATICA have released two demos, a live album, three EPs, two splits, two best of albums and surprisingly only one full length album.
