HANGED, DRAWN AND QUARTERED is one of the newer albums in the PROFANE EXISTENCE store (3 vinyl copies available at time of review), received via trade from a French label RAVACHOL PRODUCTIONS / SVOBODA RECORDS. This outfit from France formed in 2011 and currently reside in Besancon, a city in eastern France about 30 or so miles from the Switzerland border. The lyrics comment on corrupt politicians, false satanists, drinking beer, puking beer out of your ass, refusal of working so you can get drunk all day, and then again more satanism. The band seem like a bunch of mean rowdy drunks that get off on being “more evil than thou”. Vocals hit the mid and deep range, and musically, this is all out crusty thrash metal with dual guitars and a very competent drummer. HDQ is their first full length effort, and they’ve already got a split 7″ out with LUST FOR DEATH, a new band, also from France. Check out the split if you like BLACK CODE, it’s in the same style but with a more recognizable crust punk based beat, and the EP is 14 + minutes long! all material can be accessed through the bandcamp page.
