CASSETTE SHIPS NOW! Only 300 tapes pressed on royal blue shells with black ink.
HELLS HEADBANGERS is proud to present a brand-new mini-album from the legendary PROFANATICA, Altar of the Virgin Whore, on CD, 12" vinyl, and cassette tape formats.
PROFANATICA need no introduction: pioneers of American black metal, masters of barbaric minimalism, desecrators of all that's pure and clean - and iconoclasts to the very end. Ever since the band's reformation/reinvigoration with 2007's Profanatitas de Domonatia, full-length albums have been the preferred format for Paul Ledney and crew. However, going back the band's beyond-classic Weeping in Heaven in 1991, it could be argued that PROFANATICA are at their most potent when doing EPs. And that's precisely what Altar of the Virgin Whore is: 20 minutes of cruel 'n' crushing sonic defilement that bears all the bulldozing trademarks of the band post-reformation. No need for further fancy words here; this is simply and totally PROFANATICA, distilled to its short/sharp/shocked essence and rendered in the rudest and rawest form.
The release of Altar of the Virgin Whore shall be joined by long-awaited vinyl reissues of PROFANATICA's first two albums, the aforementioned Profanatitas de Domonatia and 2010's Disgusting Blasphemies Against God.
