‘Chapter 1: A Long Time Coming’ is the debut studio album by stoner rock band PROFANE AND THE SACRED – released 23rd February 2015 via Cargo Records.
Featuring gigantic doom laden riffs that unashamedly smother you in nostalgia but waste no time in lacing prog tinged instrumental breakdowns into a 9 song musical journey. Showcasing time progressions that shift gears but never let up on the momentum – allowing the rapsy, gritty vocals of singer Luke Alleeson to cover the organic soundtrack.
‘A Long Time Coming’ is an album specifically recorded to sound alive and not manipulated to the point of sounding ‘cookie cut’ – the warm acoustic notes of album opener ‘Bench’ gives way to down tuned riffing with ‘Bleed That Stone’ and ‘You Know’ demonstrating the armoury of this band. First single ‘From The Top’ showcases Profane And The Sacred in a 5 minute classic stoner rock track, with the latest single ‘Words’ demonstrating fast pace and groove that hits you right between the eyes during its chorus and breakdown.
The subtle tones of closer ‘A New Leaf’ captures the melodic side, with keyboards, acoustic and bass complimenting each other in this instrumental piece, leaving the listener in a soothing, melancholy reflective mood.
