And don’t let me forget to mention the Oiltanker/No Tomorrow split comes in some pretty awesome colors. So… ORDER YOUR COPY NOW!
OILTANKER / NO TOMORROW Split LP
Worshipping upon the filth-streaked altars of Scandinavian hardcore, Japanese punk, classic d-beat, and vicious, metallic-minded crust, these two bands have risen rapidly through the underground, and are poised to take the fuck over. Tour after tour, song after song both of these bands are relentless and have shown through their actions that they won’t let up until the world hears their message of defiance and unrest. When looking for new artists to join the Profane Existence family we want bands that exemplify our mission statement. These bands are definitely out there “Making Punk A Threat Again!” While each band has their own unique style it’s easy to see why they are sharing a release together. Their sound is heavy. Their delivery is crushing. The recording embodies the high energy performance and intensity you would expect from a live show while sounding solid and musically tight. This is definitely a record that will breath new life and energy into the crust punk genera. When they contacted us about releasing the record there was no way we could pass it up. This is one of the best new records we have heard in a while!
Fans of Disrupt, Nausea, Doom, & Extreme Noise Terror are sure to agree. With both bands poised to launch live assaults upon the continental US and even further, the release of their split LP is only a merciless harbinger of the destruction that is to come. There will be blood.
APPALACHIAN TERROR UNIT – Armageddon Won’t Be Brought By Gods… 7″
Every once in a great while, a new band comes along with such intense fury that they captivate all who hear and see them — APPALACHIAN TERROR UNIT is one such band. Hailing from the mountains of West Virginia, ATU belt out a thunderous chorus of eco-awareness and chastisement for mankind’s destructive ways (or at least those who are in control). Musically they combine classic punk, crust, and a hint of metal into a sound that’s likened to later years NAUSEA, totally reinforced by the strong female vocals throughout. Adding to the over-all amazing quality of this EP are additional touches of brilliance, like the brutally powerful recording by Jay at the Jam Room in South Carolina (Antischism, Damad, etc.) and cover / poster art by Marald. Normally this sort of praise for a job well done is reserved for bands who have been around the block once or twice—not for the debut EP from a band barely formed a year before recording. This is the band’s first 7” release and came out in 2007. This record sold over 2,000 copies within the first year. The vinyl has long been out of print and is one of the most sought after records in recent Profane history. Since their inception this energetic band has completed numerous tours of the United States and Europe and released a series of strong selling records and CD’s. We are excited to have this record back in print just in time to hit the streets before ATU’s summer tour.
