Noc Lekkich Obyczajów

As a metal reviewer there is no greater feeling than stumbling upon something that is mind-blowingly awesome.  I hope 2017 continues along this trend of new amazing bands popping up from all over the world because it definitely seems like each week I am finding more and more releases from around the world that are truly blowing me away which leads me to Poland’s Biesy. Last it was Furia that was the must check out polish band.  This year, more specifically this fall, Biesy will be the new Polish act to check out. Their name translates to the word “fiends” in Polish. I believe their album title translates to “The Night of The Light” If you could imagine the amalgam of Deathspell Omega, Ulcerate, Immolation and Gorguts that would be my first initial impressions of influences. I actually here a lit bit of Mithras in here as well.

I must admit in looking at their cover art I was expecting some form of a black metal project and was very happy to hear that I was wrong in that regard. This group features members of the Polish group Outre who I will have to check out after being absolutely absorbed into this release for the last month. Noc Lekkich Obyczajów does not officially release until September 9th of this year. The opening track “Kazdego Dnia” translates to “Every Day” slowly fades in with a very Ulcerate-ish style dissonant build that resonates into a ritiualistic heavy build in which the riffs sound like shrieking chimes.  Strawrogin’s vocals add a broad sense of depth to these unbelievably cold and haunting song arrangements. MP’s drumwork acts as plundering hammer accentuating every nuance being brought out by the guitar work of PR.

“W Krew”, the second track which translates to “In Blood” wastes no time lifting this listener off the ground with their scathingly intense tempo and unique approach to song composition. “W krew” builds into some very unique riff progressions that at times remind me of older Mastodon. “Powroty” which translates to “Returns” has the most Gorguts feel as far as the riff arrangements on this release. “Rzucony W Przestrzen” which translates to, “Thrown into Space” is the longest track on the album at over eleven minutes.   The album closes with the title track, “Noc Lekkich Obyczajów which opens with layered riffs and some strong cymbal work building into an anthem like heaviness into an almost ethereal section of chaotic broken melody.

In a year where you have a band like Decapitated releasing an album that demonstrates one specific type of extreme metal, Biesy debuts with their own extremes.  There is something uniquely special about this group and extremely excited to hear the maturity of this group going forward as this debut sounds like a group that has been jamming together for many, many years.   This one will definitely make my best of the year list.  A very refreshing break from all of the American death metal releases this summer.  Maybe these fiends are more of a fall band anyways.  Check out the album teaser on YouTube and preorder this immediately.
