De Profundis Signs French Distribution Deal with Holy Records

London-based dark metal band DE PROFUNDIS has signed a deal with HOLY RECORDS for distribution of their debut album "Beyond Redemption" in France. The album was recorded and mixed by Steve Watkins at Warehouse Studios, Oxford and was mastered by Tim Turan, who has worked with such artists as OPETH, EMPEROR, DIMMU BORGIR and AT THE GATES.

DE PROFUNDIS's progressive approach to extreme metal has won praise with reviewers. Reviews for "Beyond Redemption" have been uniformly positive, with Chris Davison of live4metal.com calling it "engaging, atmospheric and supremely intelligent music... Unmissable throughout." Building on the traditionally crushing and eternally despairing sound of doom metal, DE PROFUNDIS has many genre-defying and unique touches to its sound, such as jazz-funk slap bass, black metal blast-beats and complex compositional arrangements featuring technical guitar solos. DE PROFUNDIS also boasts an original logo by none other than the black metal legend Christophe Szpajdel.

The deal with HOLY RECORDS culminates what has been an extremely productive 6 months since DE PROFUNDIS released its debut album in August 2007. It comes in addition to the USA distribution deal the band has secured with BANEFUL GENESIS DISTRIBUTION.

Since that time, the band has had a busy live schedule, having recently supported the legendary French metallers MISANTHROPE on both of their exclusive UK shows. In March 2008, DE PROFUNDIS performed at the MMD (March Metal Day) festival in Athens, Greece alongside NEVERMORE, NIGHTWISH, ANNIHILATOR, SODOM and many others. DE PROFUNDIS have also been confirmed to play at this year's METALCAMP Festival to be held in Tolmin, Slovenia.
