Furia – Księżyc milczy luty

I did not discover Poland’s Furia until 2015 when i got around to hearing Nocel after seeing it littered on a a few 2014 year end lists. So I really can’t talk about the bands past releases and development etc, past that album and this new one, an album that appears to be even more […]

Bloodthirst – Glorious Sinners

Poland’s Bloodthirst have a bit of history behind them, having been in circulation since 2001 and they have a number of splits, full-length albums and EP’s under their belt, so they are definitely not the new kids on the block. So with that history and back catalogue, they give us a well oiled thrash metal […]

Mord’A’Stigmata – Our Hearts Slow Down EP

I first came across Poland’s Mord’A’Stigmata with the 2011 release AntiMatter and I was intrigued with their take on black metal which contained avant-garde elements and slight progressive influences to bring forth a different form of darkness and with current members also in Arkona and Preludium, I knew there is a history behind them. I […]

Gortal – Blasphemous Sindecade

Poland’s Pagan Records did not have to go far to farm their fellow countrymen Gortal from their own back yard.

When I put […]

Sathanas – Nightrealm Apocalypse

Pennsylvania’s Sathanas have been causing a ruckus in the underground since 1988’s Ripping Evil demo, but it is these last several years during which they’ve been on one hell of a roll. In 2005 they released the Entering the Diabolic Trinity album and followed it up with the scorching Crowned Infernal (both on Pulverised Records). […]

Mysteria – Temple of the Scorn

Mysteria hails from Poland and promises an expansive, avant-garde mix of death, black and folk. Sounds intriguing…. Opener “Mulla Xul” kicks off the proceedings on a promising, if not familiar note. Churning thunder, monstrous growls and ancient, Sumerian-styled bombast. It’s heavily reminiscent of countrymates Behemoth, but less epic. Nothing terribly progressive or forward-thinking either, but […]
