In the beginning of 2009 the second full-lenght album ”Inherit The Void” was released by Metalheim and Playground Music Scandinavia. Inherit The Void hit the Finnish national chart at position 9. and it got praises in reviews in magazines and webzines. The album was once again produced by Ville Sorvali and the band.
After ”Inherit The Void” PROFANE OMEN toured like hell once again, playing over 50 shows in Finland and some in Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia. The band did an acoustic tour in Finland playing some new arrangements of the songs from the bands previous releases, and the public seemed to enjoy PO in a more mellow way too.
2010 PROFANE OMEN signs a deal with Spinefarm Records after departure of the bassist Tomppa Saarenketo. Tomppa left due to lack of motivation towards the band but there was no drama involved, although the band was in a tight spot because of recordings of the third album ”Destroy!” beginning in two months. Luckily, the awesome bassman Antti Seroff was able to own his territory with such a short notice, so ”Destroy!” was successfully recorded, and on this album the band thinks it has finally found the perfect sound.
”Destroy!” will be released in Finland 28th of September and worldwide during the fall 2011 via Spinefarm Records, and after the release PROFANE OMEN will tour like hell - once again.
PROFANE OMEN in its current form have done a huge amount of gigs, including huge festivals like Sonisphere, Tuska and Sauna Open Air, but also some really intense small clubs, and that has made the band worth seeing live.
