Rare and out of print for many years now, PROFEZIA’s Black Misanthropic Elite – Moon Anthem debut is finally back in print via MORIBUND RECORDS, available as a limited-edition A5 digibook. Originally released in 2008, Black Misanthropic Elite – Moon Anthem introduced this Italian black metal cult to the international scene, and soon was spoken of with quiet reverence.
Back then, the duo of Kvasir and Vidharr created an extremely cold, resolutely purist form of black metal that breathed the same icy fire that the ancient gods of the early ’90s did. And although PROFEZIA’s lust for pushing boundaries would blossom years later on the critically acclaimed MORIBUND album Oracolo Suicida, the conviction displayed – not to mention the utter hypnosis – across Black Misanthropic Elite would serve as an important foundation for one of Italian BM’s very best bands. Tracks 1-6 comprise the Black Misanthropic Elite portion of the album, while track 7 and 8 comprise Moon Anthem, altogether making for stirring spelunking through medieval depths.
PROFEZIA’s Black Misanthropic Elite – Moon Anthem will be out on July 24th, 2015.
