Profanation (Preparation for a Coming Darkness) is the last album by Praxis, released in Japan on January 1, 2008. The album features guest appearances by Iggy Pop, Mike Patton, Serj Tankian and Killah Priest among others. The album had a US release via M.O.D. Technologies in 2011.
For more than a year the album was only available for purchase by ordering it from Japan. Japanese website "Neowing" released samples of each song. Since February 2009 it can be purchased as a download.
A US version was released in January 25, 2011, through Bill Laswell's new label, M.O.D. Technologies. The re-release features two new live tracks "Wedge" and "Subgrid". Not long after this re-release, Laswell commented on the likely end of the band and that he considered the band as a "closed chapter" M.O.D. Technologies has also slated (through their distributor Redeye Distribution) a vinyl version for April 2013.
