Profane Grace - _The Divination of Souls_
(Gothic/Sepulture Prod., 1996)
by: Gino Filicetti (7 out of 10)
This disc is perhaps one of the most mysterious, weird and utterly cool CDs I've laid my ears upon. Suffice it to say that I know absolutely nothing about this band except their names; Xastiel, Vrathurn and Zorsith. I don't even know when this album was released, but one listen to the contents of this CD and all the mystery surrounding it seems somehow fitting. The music here, if you can call it that, is pure ambience with a VERY light touch of synth work here and there. There is, however, a focus on vocals which are very echoed and evil sounding growls, gurgles, grunts, and groans from all over the vocal spectrum. This album contains seven tracks and totals 51 minutes in length. One particularly interesting part is on the second track, about 7:40 into the song. Adrian and I were at my house one day doing some work whilst listening to this record when this part came on, which is basically the vocals screaming out from the speakers ... "Adrian!" It totally tripped out both of us and shows how freaky this album is. This record is definitely one that'll scare your girlfriend shitless, and send your mother to the priests asking for an exorcism.
