We are proud to announce that the latest addition to the Profound Lore collective comes in the form of Canadian black metal terrorist unit A.M.S.G. Masterminded by the notorious Angelfukk Witchhammer (of Ouroboros, Rites Of Thy Degringolade, Gloria Diaboli fame), A.M.S.G. play threatening uncompromising black metal in the ancient vein that conjures the glorious vibe portrayed by the classic old school cult days of such luminaries as Necromantia, Mortuary Drape, Rotting Christ, Samael, and Varathron, while portraying a vibe reminiscent of the more singular present-day black metal cult bands such as Negative Plane, Avichi, and Weapon.

Profound Lore, as one of its first releases of 2013, will be releasing the new full-length album from avant-classical virtuoso cellist Helen Money (aka Alison Chesley).
