Profanatica’s Altar Of The Virgin Whore sees the band emerge with a fresh sound possessing a more detailed mixing and mastering effort compared to that of their past releases that were particularly turbid to some degree. There is a considerably more distinguishing identity to Profanatica’s music now resulting from this refined audible tuning. More detail is presented therefore giving the songs a glossy appeal. With Altar Of The Virgin Whore, Profanatica returns to their traditional method of playing, in addition the sound has been ramped-up to accommodate the doomy style often present in their compositions. With lots of HM-2 pedal distortion taking place, it will surely appeal to many that enjoy the early to mid-90s death metal sound. Altar Of The Virgin Whore is more reminiscent of their 1991 demo Weeping in Heaven; It has that barbaric style of drumming often times heard as a trademark of the genre, guitar work that flows like an under-current providing a warped layer to accompany the gannet-esque vocals and beefy drum sound. Some of the band’s back catalog is highly regarded within the community as influential and indeed pioneering at times, so for them to release a record within that vein should come as a pleasing surprise to many. Tracks like “Conceived With Sin” and “Prayer in Eclipse” are composed such that they do justice to the cover artwork in conjuring an air of animated desecration. They establish early on how far the band has come since producing music and scriptures of this sort. There are still segments of black/doom metal to be heard throughout the record that adds a bit more depth to the Ep. Also to be found on Altar of the Virgin Whore are guitar riffs that date back to an early period within the death metal scene giving the Ep a strong dose of nostalgia. Though the leads are repetitive at times, they invoke a condensed atmosphere that hovers above each song like a shadow. Overall this is an Ep that should please supporters of old. It has the ancient craftsmanship signatures of Profanatica matched with a most detailed yet organic mix and master.
