Vox Dei- De Profundis LP

A request post for the day, ladies and gentlemen. This one’s for Curious Guy over at Phoenix Hairpins, a fantastic post-punk blog that many readers should already be familiar with, but should scour if not.

Anyway, I’ve stumbled upon Vox Dei’s De Profundis LP, the band’s lone LP, released in 1982. A fantastic slab of gritty, French coldwave, a little more experimental than some of their counterparts. There’s also an Argentinian band that shares the same name, mostly active in the 1970s, but this band is vastly different, though little information is available about this particular one. Given those circumstances, let’s get down to the nitty gritty:

Fun Fact: “Terroriste” also appears on the fantastic BIPP: French Synth-Wave 1979/85 collection, which is worth finding for any fan of the genre.
