Steve Mackay of THE STOOGES stopped into ILD(Independent Label Distribution – PE’s Exclusive Distributer) to say hi and drop off copies of his new solo record. While there he took some promo pics… in front of the PROFANE EXISTENCE shelves! That’s right, he still has his finger on the proverbial “punk rock pulse”. Pictured with Steve… Massmord, Doom, War//PLague, Resistant Culture, Oiltanker and others. He knows where it’s at! Cheers to you Steve and to the fine folks at ILD who have been handling our distribution.

VARIOUS ARTISTS: Welcome to Minneapolis: 7″
This is a six-band compilation of heavy, basement-dwelling punks from Minneapolis. Lots of leather and spikes and seething anger. My favorites here are Ponx Attax and Favela Rising. The only band I really couldn’t get into was Kontrasekt. The record also features pictures of shows and all the bands by local photographer Adam Degross. Nice shots, for sure. It makes me feel good to know this stuff is happening all over the place! -Ty Stranglehold

Profane Existence is having their 4th special. It will include a copy of Oroku’s album, Living Through the end Time… along with a mystery CD chosen by our new Intern. (Melissa is from Indianapolis who is finishing school and wants to open her own record store.) Oroku is a band from Seattle with former members of Garmonbozia. Garmonbozia was from Minneapolis and their record was released on Profane Existence. They were one of the first crust bands to incorporate classical cello and arrangements with aggressive female fronted crust. Oroku is a progression of Garmonbozia with explosive melodic tunes combined with their crushing cello. ORDER HERE

MISERY * WAR//PLAGUE * DESPISE
Minneapolis punk veterans War//Plague return with their debut full length album “On A Darker Dawn”. This album brings forth over 2 years of socio/political rage and ferocity that is unleashed into a culmination of metallic fury. On a Darker Dawn is the bands defining pinnacle, both musically and lyrically. Coming from previous bands such as Provoked, Calloused and Pontius Pilate. These Minneapolis punks know their roots and the underbelly of the DIY movement has fueled them since day one. With the bands driving and aggressive guitars, barrage of brutal drum convergence, and vocal war cries, this album brings all their years of punk and rage into an apex of brutality.
