Review via No Clean Singing:

"Profane Order are based in Montreal (true story — in a Freudian slip, I originally typed “Monsteral”). Their line-up includes members of other Montreal black metal bands, specifically Spectral Wound and Taggarik. They self-released their debut EP Tightened Noose of Sanctimony on July 28 in a tape edition of 114 copies, which seems to be nearly sold out already, though the Malaysian label Diabolicurst Productions (Blasphemy, Beherit, Revenge) will also be releasing a tape edition. Fortunately for the tape-challenged, the EP is also on Bandcamp as a download.

Tightened Noose… is a finely crafted implement of destruction, a withering blackened death metal blitzkrieg full of toxically corrosive grinding and swarming riffs, crater-creating bass munitions, a thundering, head-cracking drum attack, and an assortment of sparingly used but freakish and incinerating solos. Ghastly howls and roars accompany the electrifying instrumental torrents.

And to be clear, the music here isn’t some murky froth of shapeless chaos. As ruthlessly destructive as they are, the songs are also heavy-grooved and catchy as hell, and more dynamic than you might be expecting. For me the standout track is “Terror Worship”, in part because of the bewildering black magic that the band practice when they slow the pace. But you can’t go wrong with any of these six obsidian gems."
